We’re not bragging. Okay maybe just a little. But, it looks like we’re going to have to invest in a larger trophy case. That’s because ThreatMetrix™ just won Cyber Defense Magazine awards for the most Innovative Anti-Malware Appliances Solution and for the Best Product Network Access Control Solution. (See below for list of other recent ThreatMetrix awards.)

Cyber Defense Magazine presents the awards at this week’s RSA Conference 2014, February 24-28 in San Francisco. They recognize the top IT security leaders who strive to offer cutting-edge knowledge of cybercrime and create advanced solutions for solving the online security issues facing businesses today.

ThreatMetrix was selected because of its anonymized global trusted identity network known as the ThreatMetrix™ Global Trust Intelligence Network or simply The Network. The Network, which differentiates between authentic and suspicious transactions and online activity, is the most comprehensive global repository of identity and fraud data in the world. It protects hundreds of millions of users and data points from cybercrime with real-time analytics that evaluate logins, payments, new account registrations and remote-access attempts for their authenticity.

In conjunction with the conference, ThreatMetrix is announcing it now offers frictionless context-based authentication for enterprise applications. Frictionless context-based authentication combines contextual information and user credentials to evaluate the possible risk of users who attempt to access resources. The new offering provides key benefits for enterprises, including frictionless access, increased security and operational efficiency.

“Our team is continuously developing new solutions to stay one step ahead of cybercriminals, and we’re thrilled to be honored by Cyber Defense Magazine in recognition of those efforts,” said Bert Rankin, chief marketing officer, ThreatMetrix. “We’re uniquely positioned to help companies prevent cybercrime as our trusted identity network is the largest in the world and protects more than 160 million active user accounts.”
