Carahsoft Technology to Offer Socure’s Identity Management Platform
Carahsoft Technology will begin providing an artificial intelligence-powered identity verification and fraud prevention platform created by Socure, an information technology firm located in Incline Village, Nevada. As master government aggregator for the ID+ software, Carahsoft aims to expand federal access through its reseller network and contract vehicles such as NASA Solutions for Enterprisewide Procurement V and the National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance, Socure said Monday.
Socure said ID+ can detect 90 percent of third-party identity fraud perpetrators among three percent of the riskiest users.
According to Steve Jacyna, Carahsoft’s director of emerging cyber solutions, the machine learning technology used in ID+ offers customers accurate verification capabilities that fit the zero trust paradigm. He added that the platform could secure federal resources against cyber attackers.
Other identity management solutions in Carahsoft’s catalog include Ping Identity’s PingOne and 1Kosmos’ BlockID. Similar to ID+, both platforms are compliant with zero trust standards.
Recent months have seen new federal efforts to address fraud, ransomware and other cybercrimes. In June, a U.S. Secret Service official said that the agency is looking into AI/ML capabilities to aid investigators in shutting down scams and chasing down criminals.
