The security vendors Edentify Inc. and BankDetect LLC announced a partnership last week to sell their products as a package.

Edentify in Bethlehem, Pa., has technology for determining the risk associated with an applicant's identity. Just as a credit score judges the risk of a legitimate borrower, Edentify's evaluations judge the risk that an applicant's credit history could be exploited by an identity thief.

BankDetect in Churchton, Md., has risk assessment and anti-money-laundering products.
