Social identity and eligibility verification (SIDEV) lets S&R pros use self-asserted information in social media to verify the authenticity and the eligibility of a customer for online transactions. In this report we look at three vendors that show promise in SIDEV and describe each vendor's capabilities in five areas: offering, scenarios, maturity, challenges, and road map.
