Partnership expands to meet growing local demand for Legal Entity Identifiers (LEIs) in Latin America

LONDON, UK AND SANTIAGO, CHILE – 24 August 2020 – Today Ubisecure, a global digital identity services provider, and Seguridad América, a Latin American cybersecurity solutions company, announced an extension to their established Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) partnership. This latest phase sees Seguridad América become a local Registration Agent partner for RapidLEI, Ubisecure’s Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) service for Latin America.

Ubisecure, well-known for its leading CIAM solutions, was accredited by the Global LEI Foundation (GLEIF) in 2018 to issue LEIs under its RapidLEI brand. RapidLEI has since become the number one issuer of new LEIs worldwide and is the number one Local Operating Unit (LOU) for data accuracy. Its success is attributed to its automated LEI issuance technology, commitment to LEI use case innovation and its growing global partner base.

Seguridad América is headquartered in Chile and has offices in Peru, Colombia, Argentina and Mexico. Its multidisciplinary team covers specialisms from digital certificates (such as SSL/TLS) to security breach detection, and now includes LEIs – the codes standardising global organisation identity. Within Latin America, there is a significant opportunity to reap a relatively untapped regional LEI market, which is ripe to follow explosive uptake as it has in North America, Europe and beyond.

As partners of both Ubisecure’s CIAM and LEI services, Seguridad América are also well placed to offer Right to Represent to their client base. Right to Represent from Ubisecure draws on its expertise with both CIAM and LEI, culminating in advanced representation governance capabilities. End users will be able to ‘Sign in with RapidLEI’ to assert their right to represent their organisation and act/request on behalf of them.

Josselyne Abarca, CEO and founding partner of Seguridad América, said, “our goal at Seguridad América is to deliver efficient and effective digital solutions. We’re very excited to now be able to offer LEIs in support of that mission, and RapidLEI certainly help us deliver on efficiency with their pioneering automated issuance technology. We see an opportunity, and a responsibility, to educate Latin American organisations on the numerous benefits of LEIs for international business and expect to see uptake increase dramatically as a result.”

Chris Hudson, Director of Channel Sales at RapidLEI, said, “I’m delighted to be working with Seguridad América to reach and service as many clients in LATAM as possible for their LEI needs and LEI lifecycle management. I worked alongside the team in my previous role at GlobalSign so already know that their local expertise and committment to providing the best digital solutions sets us in good stead for a successful partnership.”
