It’s a VERY exciting day for SecureKey, and for the individuals and institutions that value digital privacy, security and identity in Canada. Today we are thrilled to announce that Sun Life Financial is officially joining the Verified.Me digital identity ecosystem!

As the FIRST North American insurer to team up with Verified.Me, we’ll be working closely with Sun Life Financial to enable new ways to enhance the digital experiences of the company’s group benefits and individual insurance clients – allowing their clients to instantly register for accounts, streamline the claims processes and more.

What does that mean for Verified.Me? We have always believed that we need an identity solution that works across industries – not just in the financial sector, but across government, telco, insurance and more. With Sun Life as a collaborator, we have the ability to build out new capabilities in the insurance and health care spaces – areas where we know Canadians want to simplify their lives, while protecting their privacy.

Sun Life’s commitment to making their client’s business and personal lives easier through enhanced digital capabilities perfectly echoes SecureKey’s desire to make it easier for all Canadians and all Canadian service providers to transact more quickly, with more security and with more privacy than ever before.

As we prepare to launch Verified.Me nationwide we’ll be announcing additional collaborations with leading companies that recognize the need for a cross-industry digital identity ecosystem. Keep an eye on this space and www.Verified.Me  for the latest updates!

Welcome, Sun Life Financial, to the Verified.Me digital identity ecosystem!
