Letter from Anakam COO regarding Equifax acquisition

As a valued Anakam partner, it is my pleasure to bring you exciting news: Anakam has been acquired by Equifax Inc. headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.  Our relationship with Equifax has been ongoing since the beginning of 2010, when Equifax selected Anakam to provide the electronic authenticator for the Equifax I-Card.  In addition, Equifax and Anakam have had a long-standing strategic partnership providing integrated no touch, risk-based identity verification and multi-factor authentication solutions for key government, healthcare, and commercial organizations. Now as an Equifax company, we will continue to strengthen our comprehensive solution for the upfront verification of an identity at enrollment and the continued authentication of that identity for access to mission-critical applications and systems.

Equifax has been an innovator in identity proofing, verifying more than 60 million identities annually. The acquisition of Anakam gives Equifax the ability to offer global customers and partners a comprehensive policy-based platform that establishes trust and mitigates risk as enterprises move manual or face-to-face business processes into public and private cloud environments.  The combination of Anakam with Equifax’s solution offerings and pedigree in online risk management provides enterprises a unique and strategic partner that can work with them to bring more valuable online services to their customers and partners with the assurance that these interactions are safe and secure.

Anakam and all of its employees will become part of the Equifax Technology and Analytical Services (TAS) business unit, continuing to work in our current locations.  Within that structure, we are excited to bring new and innovative solutions to your organization and the marketplace overall as we combine our collective thought leadership and technology capabilities.

We would like to set up a call or meeting with you in the near future to discuss any questions you may have in more detail.  In the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out to your usual contacts within Anakam.  We are looking forward to working closely with you going forward as an Equifax company.

Sincerely,

Scott Leftwich
