Seamless Integration with BigID®

Business Partner Screenings become increasingly important for every business around the world. With our BigID® App we now bring simple and cost-effective Business Partner Screening to BigID® customers.

BigID® is the leading platform to enable organizations to comply with data privacy regulations such as GDPR and CCPA and others around the world. BigID® scans, classifies, and catalogues data in organizations’ IT environments, and enables users to know where they handle personal data, and to whom that data belongs. This allows to automate data privacy related processes such as right to know (data subject access rights), reporting, data lifecycle management and risk management. To do this, BigID® can connect to and scan several IT systems such as databases, packaged applications (e.g. SAP®), cloud applications (e.g. NetSuite, Salesforce, Slack), and many others.

Our App for BigID® plugs into the BigID® platform and immediately gets access to data and names from all these applications connected to BigID®. Like this, the app can scan many systems for sanctioned parties, and leverages the connectivity already established by the BigID® system. With minimal effort to implement, just installing one additional App into BigID®, users now can increase compliance for KYC and AML processes and conduct business partner screening in large and heterogenous environments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is Sanctions and AML Compliance relevant for my business?

Global AML & KYC regulations are a complicated field to navigate especially for small and midsize businesses (SMB). Not only the complexity of the regulations itself make it difficult but often there are regulations from multiple countries or organizations to obey.

While the financial industry / financial institutions and other ‘high risk industries’ such as real estate have been required for a long time to have AML and KYC processes in place, many other industries only now face stricter regulations due to global widespread of Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering compliance requirements.

In general all businesses are required to adopt Sanctions- and AML compliance programs and for example check their customers / business partners against global Sanctions lists to understand the risk in doing business with their clients.
