Products and Solutions

Define the Problem

A leading IT solutions provider used our solution – AuthLead™ – to conduct background verification on the prospective CXO. The feedback on the CXO included a lack of professional communication skills despite an illustrious career boasting global exposure and education from top institutions. 

The objective behind screening the incumbent’s background was to investigate and highlight any red flags in his profile. AuthBridge was provided with the incumbent’s resume and documentary proof of address, education, and identity.

How AuthBridge Helped

Extensive web and media check 

Our extensive checks helped unearth multiple resumes and profiles with two different names. Post the discovery, both profiles were collated and compared to reveal gaps and overlaps in employment and educational qualifications.

In-depth reference check

This involved reaching out to the previous employers and helped in validating information about tenures, roles and overall conduct, among other details.

Education verification 

In education verification, it was found that one profile had a mention of education from Harvard University. Another profile included education from IIM-A which, when verified, came out to be fake.


Leadership Screening Services, like AuthLead™, prove to be worthwhile investments. Our solutions enabled our client to get a 360-degree view of the identity and profile of the person being verified.
