Electronic Verification Systems and CameraLends Join Together to Prevent Fraud and Safeguard Data on Peer-to-Peer Network

Louisville, KY- (8/31/15) Electronic Verification Systems (EVS) is excited to announce its partnership with CameraLends. CameraLends is the world’s largest peer-to-peer lending community for camera and video equipment that includes a variety of products from Canon, RED, GoPros and drones to audio and lights. The partnership began in August and includes IdentiFraud Consumer and Dynamic Knowledge-Based Authentication (KBA) products, which are extremely important in keeping users’ information safe and secure in the peer-to-peer industry.

When an individual signs up to be a CameraLends member, he or she will go through EVS’ IdentiFraud Consumer and KBA questions to verify that the user is actually a person instead of spam, and that he or she is who they claim to be. EVS’ KBA engine utilizes multiple data sources from public, private and credit databases to generate multiple-choice questions for the customer that only the member would know.

There are risks with loaning out any personal item, especially with camera and video equipment that can be extremely expensive. It is essential for companies like CameraLends to protect their customers from fraudulent transactions and potential theft. Implementing IdentiFraud Consumer and KBA questions ensures that the CameraLends community is 100% verified and approved before any payments are made.

“Although CameraLends has only been a partner for a short time, we are very excited to have them as a client and see EVS implemented in the peer-to-peer industry,” Eric Knapp, EVP of Client Development, said. “We sincerely look forward to providing CameraLends with identity verification and KBA products for years to come.”

Whether it is a company that shares cars, vacation rentals or camera and video equipment, it is crucial that peer-to-peer focused companies assure that they safeguard their customers and their data.
