Email Risk

Examines email address validity, history and risk threat to ensure your customers are authentic.

Product Overview

Email Risk will help your business evade evolving fraud tactics more effectively, and approve transactions faster, all while ensuring your genuine customers continue to have a positive and seamless experience. 

It verifies the existence of the email address provided, examines its age and domain, and highlights any linked fraud data and the industry where it occurred. By evaluating data points from over 40 million addresses, we provide a trust score which represents the degree of certainty we believe the email is associated with the customer, and you can clearly identify and assess the risk level.

It works independently or in combination with other identity products for higher levels of risk management and business confidence.

How It Works

  • Automatically checks the supplied email against a database of over 40 million addresses for existence, age, domain and any associated fraud.

  • Evaluates and assesses the risk level, including checking a blocklist of known or highly suspicious email and IP addresses. 

  • We provide you with a trust score which represents the degree of certainty we believe the email is associated with the customer. The system records any new fraud events and adjusts the trust score in subsequent interactions.
