ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network — World’s Largest — Unveiled at RSA
Posted April 20, 2015
Leveraging Global Shared Intelligence, the ThreatMetrix Digital Network Protects Customer IDs Online
Now being showcased at the RSA Conference in San Francisco (April 20-24) is the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network. As the world’s largest, the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network advances identity protection through a persona-based profile that safeguards consumers’ information, protects businesses against fraud and creates a strong digital assessment on a truly global basis.
All aspects of a person’s online devices and behavior in one unique digital identity
Including email addresses, geo-locations, devices and both personal and business personas, the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network combines the specific device and persona each individual is using at any given time and at any given place to accurately authenticate the user in real time.
Alisdair Faulkner, ThreatMetrix chief products officer, on the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network’s unique cybercrime-fighting strengths
“The ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network acts as a personal digital guardian that works on business and consumers’ behalf to keep accounts, money and identity from being used in excess illegally. ThreatMetrix has built the largest digital identity network that can determine when an individual’s credentials are being used by cybercriminals in real time, which enables businesses to better understand the global footprint of stolen identities.”
Last month, ThreatMetrix announced that it now analyzes more than one billion transactions per month. The ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network further enhances its value by creating an anonymized digital identity of consumers based on device, persona and behavior from every transaction, account creation and account login.
Faulkner on defeating sophisticated networks of cybercriminals
“Businesses need a digital identity network to fight the sophisticated network of cybercriminals. Specifically, such a network can immunize the digital debris that comes from data breach fallouts. The ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network locks down identities by providing businesses with an anonymized view of their devices, personas and behaviors so identities cannot be easily spoofed by cybercriminals.”
Extending cybercrime protection by:
- Enabling banking institutions to meet authentication guidelines— Because digital identities are the new currency powering cybercrime and cyberterrorism, banks and financial institutions in general are especially susceptible to attack. The ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network enables financial institutions to protect accounts against bots using stolen credentials. It detects anomalies by leveraging a global view of devices and persona behavior.
- Extending the online identity perimeters for businesses—ThreatMetrix allows for advanced protection by leveraging the largest network of analyzed online transactions in the world. On the fraud prevention side, businesses have always looked at identities but not how these identities are used online across channels and sites. The ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network ensures identities are looked at as a whole. They are protected across channels without any perimeters.
- Providing effective customer identity protection —Following data breaches and other cyberattacks, many retailers and banks offer consumers free credit monitoring. However, this is not an effective means of guarding against account takeover attacks, or transaction fraud resulting from those breaches. In the event millions of stolen identities are in use following high profile data breaches (Anthem, Home Depot and Sony for example.), the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network analyzes consumers’ digital information – including devices and behavior – in one place and flags anomalies in real time when compromised credentials are not being used by their legitimate owners.
The annual RSA conference
Executives across the security industry come together to discuss current and future concerns, and gain access to the people, content and ideas that enable them to better protect against cybercrime.
