AcuityTec Expands KYC and Compliance AML Data With ComplyAdvantage.

[Montreal, Quebec, January 31, 2024] ( - AcuityTec, a KYC and fraud prevention provider, announces a significant enhancement to its data hub through the integration with ComplyAdvantage, an AI-driven sanctions screening and monitoring software leader. This strategic integration marks a pivotal advancement in AcuityTec's commitment to providing best-in-class Anti-Money Laundering (AML) screening for businesses navigating the complexities of regulatory compliance.

In our online economy, businesses face the formidable challenge of strengthening their global fraud defenses while remaining agile against ever-evolving local and international regulatory landscapes. In 2022, credit and financial institutions were fined almost USD 5bn for anti-money laundering (AML) issues, sanctions breaches and deficiencies in their know your customer (KYC) systems. As a result, 70% of corporate risk and compliance professionals say they have noticed a shift from check-the-box compliance to a more strategic approach.

Online entities require dynamic and automated access to real-time global KYC and AML data to attain the highest level of precision in risk assessment. The partnership between AcuityTec and ComplyAdvantage is pivotal for businesses striving to navigate compliance intricacies effectively and defend themselves against financial crime.
