Tom Noonan-backed startup Evident has raised $8.8 million to help businesses securely verify customer data.
Evident helps businesses and individuals securely share verified personal data, CEO David Thomas said.
"We help businesses verify individuals' credentials without requiring them to handle sensitive personal data." Thomas said.
Evident’s cloud-based software allows businesses to verify professional licenses, certifications, criminal and financial background information, without having to see or handle the individual’s personal information.
“Verifications require a lot of personal information,” Thomas said. “If we can help companies perform verifications without ever having to touch that personal information, they become less of a target for hackers.”
