Powering a people-friendly digital future

Our mission

At Sumsub, we believe in a safe, accessible, and inclusive digital future for users and businesses alike. By eliminating fraud and verification hurdles, we aim to create a world where anyone—regardless of age, location, or computing skills—can securely access and use any service.

The Power
of One

To achieve this, we are developing a single, secure verification platform that is efficient, compliant, and free of country-specific barriers

One platform

We’ve gathered all the verification, compliance, and case management tools you need in one place. This means there’s no need to opt for multiple solutions. Sumsub keeps ahead of the evolving compliance and fraud landscape, so you don’t have to.

One Journey

Verification doesn’t stop at onboarding. We secure every step of the customer journey, from initial screening to high-risk transactions at a later stage. This way, verification is continuous, and account takeovers or sudden suspicious activity are not a danger anymore.

One World

Sumsub is well-traveled. We recognize any document type, language, and script. Our clients reach global markets and onboard users worldwide regardless of location, jurisdiction, or language.



Sumsub started out as graphic editor-detecting technology in 2015. That was the foundation for a powerful KYC/AML solution renowned for its anti-fraud capabilities.


Sumsub is one verification platform that helps businesses monitor fraud worldwide and at every step of the customer journey. In a single flow, our clients verify users, businesses, and transactions, as well as manage cases and customize flows.


Sumsub will continue to break boundaries in the digital world and keep centralizing every aspect of verification in one platform, ensuring that businesses can handle any emerging threat, verification task, or compliance challenge.
