by March 4, 2021

IDnow, a provider of Identity Verification-as-a-Service solutions, announced that it has agreed to acquire identity Trust Management, an international provider of digital and offline identification solutions from Germany.

IDnow will retain identity Trust Management’s Düsseldorf location as well as its employees.

The acquisition of identity Trust Management will allow IDnow to expand into new industry verticals and provide its services to a broader customer base throughout Germany and beyond.

The combined product portfolio will offer one of the broadest sets of identity verification methods available in the European market, ranging from automated to human-assisted and from purely online to point-of-sale. All these methods will be made available via the unified IDnow platform.

identity Trust Management has established itself in the German identity market over the last decade, with a particularly strong reputation and portfolio of clients across the telecommunications and insurance verticals.

This is IDnow’s second acquisition in the last six months following that of Wirecard Communication Services in September 2020.
