As we continue to build on our position as the leader in Day Zero identity, we are prioritizing investment in new verticals, talent, products and capabilities."

Travis Skelly, Director, Venture Investing at Citi Ventures, said, "Advanced identity screening solutions have become essential for financial institutions to effectively prevent fraud as cyber criminals are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Socure has established itself as a market leader in the identity verification space and Citi Ventures is excited to support their ongoing growth story."
