ThreatMetrix Receives Dual Industry Recognition from One World Identity and from the Merchant Risk Council Community

SAN JOSE, Calif. – (April 4, 2018) ThreatMetrix®, A LexisNexis® Risk Solutions Company, today announced that ThreatMetrix executive Reed Taussig has been recognized as CEO of the Year by One World Identity (OWI), an independent strategy and research company. This comes on the heels of OWI’s appointment of Taussig to its Top 100 Influencers in Identity 2018 earlier this year.

The announcement was made at the KNOW Identity Conference, which took place in Washington D.C. on March 26-28, 2018. The KNOW Identity Awards recognize the most compelling startups, individuals and identity innovations of the year.

In addition, ThreatMetrix won the People’s Choice Award at the MRC Technology Awards, which recognize the most elite solution providers making significant contributions in the fraud, risk and payments space.

The winner of the popular vote for the leading technology was ThreatMetrix ID™, which uniquely provides a universal digital identifier for users and offers a revolutionary approach to secure digital transactions.

We’ve revolutionized the way organizations make fraud and authentication decisions in real time to accelerate secure transactions.”
