How do you distinguish between legitimate users and imposters without adding tedious authentication procedures? ThreatMetrix™ provides a fully transparent identification solution that can positively authenticate who is attempting access to online applications.

Cybercriminals are experts at obtaining user credentials via password cracking techniques, malware that captures keystrokes, phishing attacks, shared passwords, and other methods. Stopping hackers and fraudsters is critical. However, it’s also vital to make the authentication process simple and straightforward for legitimate users.

Traditional username password solutions are easily compromised. Third party authentication systems that utilize biometric devices or tokens add cumbersome steps to the login procedure for legitimate users, and require a significant amount of overhead for administrators.

For organizations that want to easily but significantly increase their authentication security, ThreatMetrix provides transparent multi-factor authentication that positively identifies users without requiring them to take additional and unnecessary steps to log in.

Frictionless Two-Factor Authentication

Most authentication systems evaluate passwords, or something the user knows.  ThreatMetrix adds Two-Factor Authentication  capabilities by verifying something the user has (one or more known specific devices), and something the user actually is (attributes identified in their Persona ID).

ThreatMetrix operates behind the scenes and is completely transparent to the end user. And because it does not require software, tokens, or biometric readers, it’s cost-effective and frictionless for both end users and administrators.
