Stone Bank Selects EVS for Identity Verification

Louisville, KY- (10/18/2016) Electronic Verification Systems (EVS) announced today that Stone Bank, a locally owned bank located in Stone County, Arkansas, has selected IdentiFraud Consumer+ for identity verification to prevent fraud and meet compliance requirements.

Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations require financial institutions to verify the real identity of their customers when establishing new relationships, including opening of new accounts.  As consumer banking continues to shift online and online fraud increases, it is more important than ever for financial institutions to reliably verify their customers.

Electronic Verification Systems’ EVP of Client Development, Eric Knapp, said “It’s definitely a rewarding process to be able to assist a client and help them achieve their KYC/AML compliance requirements and goals with an easily implemented, cost effective solution.  We are thrilled Stone Bank chose EVS as their identity verification and KBA provider. On behalf of EVS, we look forward to a long lasting relationship!”

Stone Bank takes pride in their deep local roots, and their dedication to providing the highest level of service to members of their community.  By utilizing IdentiFraud Consumer+ with dynamic Knowledge Based Authentication (KBA), Stone Bank will be able to ensure the integrity of new customer relationships while maintaining a streamlined account origination process.  The Web Services API made available by EVS will allow for seamless integration with existing systems, and will allow Stone Bank to continue their focus on serving their customers throughout Arkansas.
