Dojah's 2023: the Year in Review

2023 was an exciting time for all of us at Dojah, filled with many great moments, achievements, and milestones. We hope it was a great year for you.

As the year comes to a close, we decided to highlight some of our top moments of the year. Here's a recap of our key moments in 2023.

We took our global compliance to new levels by acquiring three more ISO certifications

What better way to kick off the year than with some ISO certifications? We bagged the prestigious ISO 27001: Information Security Management System, ISO 20000: IT Service Management System, and ISO 23001: Business Continuity Management certifications.

These certifications show our dedication to providing the best information security, quality management, and service management standards.

Our Co-Founder was listed among the 38 women fintech founders in Africa

We are super proud of our Co-founder, Ayomide Oso. Being counted among the 38 women fintech founders in Africa indicates her immense contributions to the growth and scale of technology across Africa.

We had multiple product updates and launches 🚀

This was a busy year for our product and engineering teams, who worked hard to launch new products and update existing ones. These include:

  • EasyDetect, our transaction monitoring and fraud detection solution. Sign up for our free transaction monitoring offer for up to 10,000 transactions
  • User screening API, which allows businesses to screen users across several data points, including phone, email, AML, and IP address
  • Ongoing AML monitoring, which allows businesses to perform continuous AML checks and get real-time alerts via email and webhooks
