BEAVERTON, OREGON. MAY 21, 2020 – Q5id, the leader in Proven Identity Management, and PSI, a leading provider of secure online proctoring and skills assessments in higher education, today announced their partnership to deliver a multifactor enrollment solution to combat fraud in higher education related to financial aid, online course delivery, remote testing, and more.

PSI empowers educational institutions to offer secure and effective assessment delivery. From identity management and multimodal proctoring to reporting and analytics, PSI’s solutions provide the highest levels of security to ensure the integrity of digital learning. More than 450 schools rely on PSI for the technology, expertise, and services needed to provide a world class testing experience and support growth.

“Q5id is proud to partner with PSI to offer higher education institutions the best identity protection available,” says Q5id Chief Executive Officer and Founder Steve Larson. “Together, Q5id and PSI will give colleges and universities an unparalleled ability to combat and prevent testing and financial aid fraud.”

Q5id delivers the most robust multifactor enrollment and authentication platform to prove and authenticate identities. They are the only company to include a live video interview along with multiple biometric captures to prove liveness and identities. Many providers use some of the factors in the Q5id platform, but none put together the end-to-end solution that Q5id does.

“The problems associated with financial aid and remote course delivery fraud are only growing, especially in the face of the global pandemic,” said Doug Winneg, Executive Vice President of Corporate Development for PSI Services. “Q5id and PSI share a common vision to protect every individual’s identity and safeguard the technological solutions utilized by our customers.”
