Our story

2015

About Us
In 2015, three brothers from Israel, Andrey, Jacob, and Peter, released the first version of their anti-fraud forensic software. Based on machine learning algorithms, it analyzed fraud patterns for their first clients — insurance companies and local banks. The company established the name Sum&Substance (Sumsub) and introduced a Sherlock Holmes-style detective dog logo, which symbolizes the investigation of online fraud incidents.

2016

About Us
After an invitation from Belkasoft Evidence Center, Sumsub’s team got to examine cases for international intelligence services and police agencies. It became clear then, that merely investigating was not enough. Many life and health threatening cases of digital fraud could have been prevented by an accurate identity and anti-fraud check. To help solve the problem, in December 2016, Sumsub developed a user-friendly identity verification solution that could resist all corner cases, such as bad document quality and fraud.

2017

About Us
After a round of initial successes, having safeguarded their clients’ cars and reputation, Sumsub saw how much value the new product could bring to a number of sectors, especially to those subject to AML laws, which needed reliable, fast, and compliant solutions. The team had already been focusing on identity verification, securing a seed round investment of $1m for the development of their product. Sumsub also hired Tony Petrov, an experienced international lawyer and Berkeley Law School graduate, to develop the product from legal, compliance and regulatory relations standpoints. The company subsequently received support from Deloitte, KPMG, and welcomed by the fintech community.

2018

About Us
The company gained more clients – big and small. Sumsub provided onboarding for the top 3 European tech corporations, Mail.ru Group, job-finding platform JobToday, Czech car-sharing service AnyTime, Israeli taxi service Gett, and a range of fintech companies, such as Cryptopay and Paysend. For these new fintech clients, the company released several new products – AML screening (joint product with ComplyAdvantage), the compliance officer’s dashboard, built-in AML processes, and policy automation. Then, to develop further even faster, Sumsub opened an R&D office in Berlin.

2019

About Us
The team grew to 100 people and the company gained new big clients such as Blablacar, Flippa, Bitcoin.com, and Exness. The company released new products (e-signature, crypto AML, and chargeback protection) and was independently audited to obtain an ISO certificate. Due to its extensive legal expertise, several regulators and banks invited Sumsub to consult on the new AML laws and deliver a masterclass on how to make KYC/AML practical and convenient for businesses and users.

2020

About Us
Sumsub attained regulatory approval from the DACH countries that don’t accept document-based verification. The company successfully onboarded BaFin-regulated HRS Group, and FINMA-regulated Parity.
