As you probably realize, traditional background checks which are completed at timed intervals may not reflect any activities over the last few years. A company will receive an alert from within 10 minutes to 24 hours after a new potential negative data source has been discovered about an individual. Screening services are available daily, weekly or monthly.

  • During a 3 month period that the End User / Client used the IDentrix Continuous Monitoring Service, IDentrix identified over 800 identity changes, of which twenty four (24) actionable alerts were deemed to disqualify the noted persons from continued participation in their current regulated duties. Thus protecting the client from potential risk due to unacceptable activities.
