About Verato

Verato offers next-generation, SaaS-based products for identity matching and resolution using the most accurate reference identity database and truth-matching technology. These solutions enable companies and governments to achieve a single view of the customer, streamline business processes and prevent fraud and waste by eliminating the ambiguity and duplication of customer identities in databases. Verato technology is faster to implement and less expensive than traditional matching methods.
