Accreditrust, The First Secure Credential Processor, Receives a Multimillion-Dollar Strategic Investment to Fuel Expansion
Date:4/6/2015

WARREN, N.J., April 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Accreditrust, a global service provider for the curation of sustainable, portable and independently verifiable credentials, announced Monday a multimillion-dollar investment to fuel expansion from Verisys, a leading regulatory compliance solution provider for the healthcare industry. This strategic investment establishes Accreditrust as a leading player in the digital credentialing space while providing capital to fund further development of its groundbreaking TrueCred™ SaaS solution and company expansion. 

"This investment from Verisys confirms the marketplace need for independently validating a credential's primary source data," said Accreditrust CEO, Eric Korb.  "Currently credential validation relies upon third parties and is not machine verifiable, which creates significant and pervasive risk as well as unnecessary costs," continued Korb.

While CIO of an accredited institution of higher education, Korb saw the need for a better way of verifying credentials when an increasing number of unverifiable student applications were submitted.  Institutional credibility and productivity were at risk due to this trend.  It became clear to Korb a standardized way to securely process and verify credentials was missing, not only from education, but also from healthcare and all emerging areas where "social currency" is a necessary component for establishing sustainable trust on the internet and digital economy.

"The transactional environments we depend upon daily desperately need a trusted handshake backed by verified credentials. The Accreditrust TrueCred™ platform will protect businesses, institutions and consumers from the myriad of cyberpredators, which is costing billions of dollars," said Verisys COO, John Benson.  "We are looking forward to using the platform to expand our offerings in the healthcare industry," added Benson.

Accreditrust is also currently collaborating with W3C.org members including Educational Testing Services (ETS), the world's largest private educational assessment organization, to develop next generation digital credentials.
