Fingerprinting that’s Convenient, Safe, and Fast

Biometrics and Background Screening

At Sterling, we help companies stay safe, and we know people make the difference. Our name-based background checks are the foundation on which you can build trust in who you’re hiring. 

But names, even identities, can be stolen or fraudulent. Over 82,000 cases of employment or tax-related fraud were discovered in 2017 alone (source). For jobs that require the highest level of trust, you need the highest level of assurance.

That’s where fingerprint-based background checks come in. 

A fingerprint-based background check researches the criminal and non-criminal fingerprinting history of an individual. Sterling Identity is one of only a handful of organizations that the FBI allows to channel fingerprints for this kind of background check. If your organization is allowed to run such background checks for some or all of your employees, Sterling Identity can collect these fingerprints and return results to your authorized recipients.

Better yet, while most companies take at least 24 hours to return these results, we do it in a matter of minutes.

85% of fingerprint-based reports ordered through Sterling Identity are returned in less than 10 minutes.
