See why many of the world’s strongest brands chose Daon to help them build lasting trust with their customers.

Daon is The Digital Identity Trust Company

As business interactions move online at an exponential pace, users must rely on proxies, from passwords to devices, to prove who they are — even when these methods are infamous for being not only cumbersome, but far from secure.

Daon was founded to change that. We believe every person deserves convenient and secure access to financial, telecom, government, healthcare, and other services. Our goal is to make that possible by bringing the human being back into every identity transaction, helping businesses trust that their customers are exactly who they claim to be and allowing customers to feel confident that their data is protected while still enjoying an accessible user experience. Putting people first is even in our name.

Daon is the Old Irish word for human.

Identity. Proven. Trust.

Since 2000, Daon has been at the forefront of biometric identity assurance technology. From its early days in Ireland, Daon has grown to become a trusted global partner in both the public sector and for some of the world’s most iconic brands, securing over 1 billion identities on 6 continents.

The foundation of Daon’s core solutions is built on the unique concept of Identity Continuity, an approach to access management built around a single identity record for each customer — one that’s connected to every point of interaction and can be accessed through any channel. Through Identity Continuity, Daon is able to help its customers significantly decrease fraud, increase ROI, and improve user experience.

Daon’s solutions aren’t just based on a unique idea — they are also built on uniquely innovative technology. Daon Labs, the internal science and engineering teams, have been granted over 285 patents for many of the processes and algorithms that drive the company’s award-winning platforms and applications, and new fraud prevention and operational improvement technologies are always under development.

When your organization is ready to maximize identity fraud prevention without sacrificing customer experience, Daon has the knowledge and technology to help you build a proven identity verification and authentication solution that establishes complete trust between you and your customers.
