San Jose, Calif. – September 24, 2013 – ThreatMetrix™, the fastest-growing provider of integrated cybercrime solutions, today announces it won a Gold Stevie® Award for the “Best New Product or Service of the Year – Software – Security Solution” category and a Silver Stevie Award for the “Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year” category in the 11th Annual American Business Awards.

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. More than 3,200 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration.

In the “New Product or Service of the Year – Software – Security Solution” category, ThreatMetrix received the Gold distinction for its Persona ID Rules, which uncover anomalous behavior in real-time through the association of related activity and connected entities such as email addresses, transactions, accounts, devices, IP addresses, geo-location, proxies and physical addresses.

“Persona ID Rules provide a comprehensive risk assessment of cybersecurity threats to help businesses protect their online customers,” said Bert Rankin, chief marketing officer, ThreatMetrix. “ThreatMetrix builds an online persona of website visitors by combining online identities, device fingerprints, and detecting the presence of anomalies and malware-based compromises. By enabling our customers to query personas, devices and activity in real-time, businesses can better differentiate between genuine customers and cybercriminals using shared intelligence from the ThreatMetrix™ Global Trust Intelligence Network.”

ThreatMetrix was also honored as a “Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year,” following its sustained growth and innovation in recent years. Such innovation includes the recent introduction of the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network, the most comprehensive repository of information available for screening prior transactions and site visitors, authenticating customers and remote employee access. It is the first and only real-time screen for online visitors using collaborative intelligence and through The Network, ThreatMetrix screens more than 500 million site visitors, across more than 1,900 customers and 9,000 websites each month.

“Due to the sophisticated nature of today’s cybercriminals, businesses must continuously innovate to stay one step ahead of account takeover, payment fraud and identity spoofing attempts, or risk severely compromising company and customer data,” said Rankin. “ThreatMetrix continues to be a leader in the cybersecurity market, bringing a collective solution to the cybercrime threats we face today.”
