Web Shield is now a member of the ZignSec family – the Swedish RegTech company known for its global Identity Verification Platform and one of the first RegTech companies to be listed on the NASDAQ First North in Stockholm.
Building a one-stop-shop for KYC, due diligence and monitoring
ZignSec is a natural fit for Web Shield’s next development phase. It’s platform offers state-of-the-art technology for digital onboarding and ID verification services and complements Web Shield’s solutions.
Likewise, Web Shield’s onboarding and monitoring solutions is a key building-block within ZignSec’s compliance value chain: Together, both companies will create a unique service offering – a one-stop-shop KYC, due diligence, and monitoring solution via one single API or a No-Code platform in a drag and drop environment.
The collaboration will deliver added benefits in other areas. The collected expertise in technology and know-how of the two teams can now be used to improve the solution portfolio on both sides. In addition, being part of ZignSec’s marketplace will also expand Web Shield’s geographical presence to Sweden, the Czech Republic, the US, Malta, Singapore, and Estonia.
More benefits for you
As a Web Shield client, you need not worry: All current contracts will stay unchanged – and there are future benefits on the horizon: Joining the ZignSec marketplace will allow us to integrate ZignSec’s digital onboarding and ID verification services into our platform. By delivering a one-stop-shop solution, we can minimize the necessary integration time and cost. In the future, our customers will also benefit from a much larger pool of information available throughout the whole due diligence process.
Web Shield’s new leadership team
As a consequence of joining ZignSec, there has also been changes to Web Shield’s management board.
