The IDology solution incorporates dynamic identity processes and a fraud prevention platform to support CAMS in increasing customer acquisition, deterring fraud and meeting compliance regulations.

ATLANTA, Jan. 15, 2014– IDology, Inc., a provider of real-time technology solutions that verify an individual’s identity and age for anyone conducting business in a customer-not-present environment, today announced its partnership with CAMS, a multi-tenant Software as a Service (SaaS) solution powered by Verifi and operating in the online lottery and gaming space.

CAMS utilizes the IDology solution to further maximize the efficiency in which they collect and manage player information.

IDology is currently supporting CAMS with state lotteries and real money online gaming in New Jersey and Nevada.

IDology provides additional insight into an identity to drive revenue, decrease costs, and prevent fraud.

“We are extremely excited to announce our partnership with CAMS,” said John Dancu, CEO of IDology. “As age-restricted commerce continues to grow, it becomes more important than ever to protect our youth and keep the products and services attended for adults out of the reach of children. Our solution helps CAMS not only determine minimum age, but it also provides a deeper insight into the validity of an identity along with fraud patterns to help meet compliance and prevent fraud.”

“Given the increasing level of identity theft, just validating that a customer is of age is no longer enough,” said Matthew Katz, CEO of CAMS. “IDology’s solution enables us to better prevent identity fraud and expand our commitment to reducing risk while also escalating customer acquisition.”
