The ThreatMetrix Global Trust Intelligence Network Protects Over 160 Million Active User Accounts, 2,500 Customers and 10,000 Websites
San Jose, Calif. – February 26, 2014 – ThreatMetrix™, the fastest-growing provider of context-based security and advanced fraud prevention solutions, today announced that it was recently profiled along with eight other vendor companies in Forrester Research, Inc.’s February 4, “Market Overview: eCommerce Fraud Management Solutions, 2014.” Co-authored by Forrester analysts Peter Sheldon, Andras Cser and Lily Varon with Zia Daniell Widger and Rebecca Katz, the report highlights how eCommerce professionals looking to protect their online transactions from fraud need more sophisticated, targeted, and efficient fraud solutions1.
“Traditionally, eCommerce fraud management has focused on catching illicit activity such as fraudsters attempting to purchase items online with stolen credit card information. But as eCommerce becomes bigger and more global and as digital devices and card-not-present (CNP) transactions become more commonplace, preventing and fighting online fraud is becoming simultaneously more important and more complicated. eCommerce fraud management solutions must perform a difficult balancing act — they must improve detection rates while not preventing legitimate transactions,” according to Forrester analysts Peter Sheldon, Andras Cser and Lily Varon in the report.
The Forrester report highlighted that the online retail market in 2013 reached $262 billion — a rise of 13% over 2012’s $231 billion. According to CyberSource’s “2013 Online Fraud Report” cited in the Forrester report, the losses are estimated at approximately $3.5 billion in North America alone.
“We’re exceptionally pleased to be included as one of the vendors in this report,” said Bert Rankin, chief marketing officer, ThreatMetrix. “We believe this recognition is underscored by the fact that ThreatMetrix is the largest global identity and fraud prevention network protecting many of the world’s most trusted eCommerce brands – including four of the top 10 online retailers – against transaction fraud, identity theft and spoofing, Trojans, phishing and man-in-the-browser (MitB) attacks. And we do this while providing their customers with a frictionless checkout experience.”
According to Rankin, all this is made possible through ThreatMetrix’s anonymized global trusted identity network, the ThreatMetrix™ Global Trust Intelligence Network (The Network), that is used to differentiate between authentic and suspicious transactions and online activity. The Network is the largest trusted identity network of shared intelligence, protecting and analyzing more than 500 million monthly transactions, 160 million active user accounts, 2,500 customers and 10,000 websites.
