London – 12th April 2012 – GB Group PLC, the Identity Management specialist, today launches additional country coverage to provide full age, identity and anti-money laundering verification to businesses wishing to trade with citizens in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands. Enabled by GB Group’s award winning global ID3 technology, part of its global suite of Identity Management tools, GB Group can now provide in-depth identity verification on German, Austrian, Swiss and Dutch citizens.

GB Group remains focussed on expanding its global verification capability and the addition of these four geographies to its Identity Management product suite means GB Group now has the facility to provide in-depth identity verification in 14 countries that represent 44% of global GDP.

Richard Law, CEO of GBG comments, “With a growing number of online organisations seeking to trade cross-border with consumers, our ability to provide in depth identity verification in an increasing number of geographies provides GB Group with a significant competitive advantage. With this additional coverage and the flexibility of our technology we are well placed to respond to changes in regulation, such as the forthcoming 4th EU Money Laundering Directive and the European Commission’s review of the Online Gaming market in Continental Europe. This will provide our clients with the ability to onboard their customers in a safe and compliant environment via one single solution. The latest country coverage added to our solution moves us closer to our vision to provide in-depth verification of ‘Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime’.”
