Our Advantage

The 1Kosmos Advantage

1Kosmos is modernizing identity and access management. Our solutions automate identity verification at new account origination and then gives each user a non-phishable passwordless multi-factor credential for convenient authentication into digital services.

This ensures that users creating new accounts are who they claim to be and prevents account takeover at login, simplifying fraud management without adding friction to the user experience of customers, workers and citizens.

Our innovative privacy by design approach also puts users in control of their own personal identifiable information, removing any possibility of unauthorized 3rd party access to their data, and providing IT and Security teams a complete “chain of custody” audit log for all access events.

With 1Kosmos, organizations can tackle their big IAM / CIAM issues:

  • Detect and block synthetic or stolen identities before authentication
  • Eliminate account sharing and transfer to unauthorized 3rd parties
  • Render phishing attacks ineffective
  • Protect against account takeover
  • Improve user satisfaction with their digital experience
  • Accelerate services provisioning with reusable, verified credentials
  • Comply with privacy mandates with user-managed PII
  • Support investigations with an immutable ”chain of custody” audit log

The 1Kosmos platform provides an architectural advantage for managing identity verification and passwordless authentication across diverse environments
