Posted February 11, 2015
ThreatMetrix Analyzes and Protects More Than 850 Million Monthly Transactions with its Innovative TrustDefender™ Cybercrime Protection Platform
San Jose, CA – February 11, 2015 – ThreatMetrix®, the fastest-growing provider of context-based security and advanced fraud prevention solutions, today announced it has earned recognition on The Channel Company’s CRN 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors of 2015. This annual list recognizes some of the most innovative cloud companies supporting the IT channel today.
The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors honor is presented to companies based on their approach to creating innovative products, services or partner programs that have helped channel partners transform into true solution providers, ultimately helping customers take advantage of the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and savings that cloud computing offers.
The ThreatMetrix TrustDefender™ Cybercrime Protection Platform, a cloud-based solution, leverages the collective power of the ThreatMetrix® Global Trust Intelligence Network (The Network) to eliminate cybercrime. The Network enables ThreatMetrix to analyze and protect online transactions and activity, especially surrounding mobile-based transactions. By analyzing device, identity and behavioral data in real time, ThreatMetrix can quickly identify cybercriminals attempting to create fraudulent new accounts, takeover existing accounts or execute card-not-present (CNP) fraud. Additionally, this analysis provides a competitive advantage by enabling trusted customers frictionless account and transaction access while keeping costs low by greatly reducing the use of step-up or out-of-band authentication.
“ThreatMetrix is honored to receive recognition as one of CRN’s 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors of 2015 as it serves as validation of our continued innovation in advanced fraud prevention and context-based authentication,” said Reed Taussig, president and CEO at ThreatMetrix. “Many of the world’s largest brands trust ThreatMetrix to protect their business operations against cybercriminals in real time without disrupting the customer experience. The only way for businesses to combat today’s sophisticated cybercriminals without adding friction is with a collective network that leverages data from across a global information base within and across industries.”
This year’s 100 Coolest Cloud Computing honorees are identified across five major categories including platforms, infrastructure, storage, security and software. This list is an effort to help solution providers navigate through the ambiguity of the cloud market to identify the vendors, products and services that can help elevate their cloud services offerings. Companies were chosen based on data and information gathered from solution provider nominations along with input from the CRN editorial team.
“Widespread demand for cloud computing solutions is increasing across businesses of all shapes and sizes,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “As organizations become more willing to adopt cloud technology and services, experienced solution providers are in greater demand. The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list enables solution providers to engage with companies who are poised to help them capitalize on these opportunities.”
