Adobe Introduces New ID System with the Help of Machine Learning

Adobe is boosting Adobe Document Cloud with signer identity and ecosystem improvements for financial services and updates for HR solution support.

In addition, Adobe and Microsoft are enabling even stronger document security as Adobe Acrobat becomes Microsoft’s preferred PDF solution for Microsoft Information Protection.

Adobe Sign is introducing a new option — Government ID Authentication — that aims to take the pain out of verifying a customer’s identity. In the Sign app for Android and iOS, signers follow an on-screen guide that instructs them to snap a selfie and a photo of their physical ID card (e.g., a driver’s license or passport).

In the cloud, with the help of machine learning, Adobe Sign evaluates the ID’s patterns, fonts, holograms, layout, and other security features in seconds, and compares facial features between the selfie and ID portrait (such as the distance between eyes).

Government ID Authentication doesn’t perform third-party record or criminal background checks, but it does tap a database of templates for every type of ID in supported states and countries. Signers have up to three chances to successfully scan their ID. If they fail three consecutive times, they’re locked out.

On the HR front, Adobe Sign now supports Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Talent and ServiceNow HR Service Delivery, joining existing integrations with platforms like SAP SuccessFactors and Workday.

Last but not least, Adobe today announced that Adobe Acrobat DC and Acrobat Reader on Windows are gaining support for Microsoft Information Protection (MIP), a solution that allows organizations to classify and protect documents and emails by applying labels.

Now, Acrobat DC users can open and view secured PDF files, making it Microsoft’s preferred PDF viewer for MIP.
