Learn where the enemy is and what that enemy is up to in real-time. With the ThreatMetrix™ Web Fraud Map, you’ll know about account takeovers, payment fraud, identity theft and more — virtually every type of cybercrime perpetrated anywhere in the world.
It’s the real-time virtualization of the origin of cybercrime attempts globally; the mind and plans of cybercriminals laid bare.
Data for the map is drawn from customer-defined fraud scores that are used to accelerate, block, review or challenge transactions and logins in real-time. In addition to correlating real-time device, persona and transaction attributes, associations and behavior, ThreatMetrix provides direct detection of malware, proxies, Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attacks and stolen credentials.
“On average, ThreatMetrix customers automatically prevent about 360,000 high-risk cybercrime attacks per day using the TrustDefender Cybercrime Protection Platform for Web and mobile applications,” said Alisdair Faulkner, chief products officer, ThreatMetrix. “That breaks down to about 15,000 cyber attacks per hour, which translates into a savings of millions of dollars each day.”
In all, some 1,500 customers, 9000 Websites and more than 1.7 billion cyberevents were used to compile Web fraud statistics from ThreatMetrix’s TrustDefender™ Cybercrime Protection Platform and the ThreatMetrix™ Global Trust Intelligence Network. In addition to information gathered directly from patented device intelligence and threat intelligence, ThreatMetrix privately encrypts customer-supplied data and performs cross correlation on anonymized personas.
“ThreatMetrix Web Fraud Map is an industry first that we hope will educate people about the extent of the cybercrime problem,” said Faulkner. “If the mission critical Web applications that you rely on do not have adequate cybercrime protection measures in place, it’s only a matter of time that your identity, accounts, digital IP and money will fall into the hands of a cybercriminal.”
