Vancouver, Canada – 24 April 2024 GeoComply, a global leader in geolocation compliance, fraud and identity technology, and Caf, a leading innovator of digital identity verification solutions today announced a new partnership in Brazil. With the country poised to implement its regulated igaming and sports betting market, this partnership comes at a critical time for the industry, as international gambling platforms prepare to enter Brazil’s highly coveted regulated landscape.

This collaboration elevates the capabilities of IDComply, GeoComply’s all-in-one KYC / AML solution, for the Brazilian market by streamlining the onboarding process for legitimate players and keeping bad actors and fraudsters at bay.  By leveraging Caf’s capabilities, such as document verification, biometrics technology and unrivaled population data, this partnership provides operators with complete coverage of the Brazilian market. With the intricate connections and vast data resources of both companies, this joint effort will facilitate seamless and effective identity verification and KYC for operators in Brazil.

The partnership also highlights the importance of gambling operators having a local partner in Brazil. With more than 3,500 identity documents used throughout the country and persistent levels of fraud, Brazil presents unique challenges for those that don’t know the ins and outs of the country’s landscape. As a Brazil-borne company, Caf is uniquely positioned to help gambling operators thrive in this market. 

Anna Sainsbury, GeoComply CEO, commented: “This partnership enhances IDComply for the Brazilian market, strengthening our ability to provide leading igaming and sports betting operators with the perfect blend: ensuring robust compliance while delivering a seamless, quick, and user-friendly onboarding experience for consumers. By leveraging this collaboration with Caf, we empower operators to navigate Brazil’s newly regulated market with confidence, offering unparalleled reliability and efficiency in identity verification.”

Jason Howard, Caf’s CEO, added: “This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for international gambling operators now that Brazil is formally regulating betting. The identity landscape here is highly fragmented, and fraud is sophisticated. To maintain a safe platform, remain compliant and win customers, betting operators will need best-in-class identity verification solutions. This partnership between Caf and GeoComply offers just that.”
