Identity Risk

Reduce your exposure to digital risk by authenticating email accounts and devices.

Product Overview

Identity risk management helps your business evade evolving digital fraud tactics more effectively, and approve transactions faster, all while ensuring your genuine customers continue to have a positive and seamless experience.

We compare various data points against multiple attributes, including authenticity, history, any associated fraud, IP addresses, and disguising techniques. And our responsive technology stays up-to-date to help you outsmart the fraudsters.

Incorporate into your existing systems so it won't interrupt your business's workflow or impede your customers' experience.
