Additions to the ThreatMetrix Global Trust Intelligence Network Enable Real-Time Analysis of Customer Provided Data and Android Application Data
San Jose, CA – November 4, 2014 – ThreatMetrix®, the fastest-growing provider of context-based security and advanced fraud prevention solutions, today announced the availability of the ThreatMetrix Fall 2014 Release. This latest release delivers improvements in how ThreatMetrix customers can integrate information from any source to enhance the depth and breadth of data available for real-time analysis by the ThreatMetrix® Global Trust Intelligence Network (The Network). The Fall 2014 Release also includes new capabilities to analyze and determine risk factors associated with applications running on Android-based devices.
This release provides ThreatMetrix customers with the ability to privately store and analyze organizational-supplied data relevant to determining trust and risk levels or other attributes specific to their business. Additionally, the Fall 2014 Release delivers mobile risk and trust analysis improvements to better determine the trustworthiness of applications running on Android devices through a partnership with Webroot, the market leader in cloud-based, real-time Internet threat detection.
The Fall 2014 Release enhances ThreatMetrix’s context-based security and advanced fraud prevention solutions through:
“The new Persona DB enables ThreatMetrix customers to provide their own data sources to improve their ability to distinguish between trusted users and fraudulent activity,” said Ken Jochims, director of product marketing at ThreatMetrix. “For example, banks and financial institutions can include banned country lists to ensure they are compliant with governmental trade restrictions. In addition to blocking suspicious activity, Persona DB data can also be used to enhance good customer access by identifying trusted high-value customers through frequent flier status data, streamlining access or by applying other specialized actions.”
“We’re excited to partner with ThreatMetrix to extend our market-leading mobile classification services to determine trust levels for Android applications,” said Scott Merkle, vice president of enterprise and OEM sales at Webroot. “Together, we can empower organizations to identify threats lurking in mobile applications while maintaining compliance by protecting access and transactions for a multitude of mobile devices.”
“As cybercriminals continue to advance their capabilities, ThreatMetrix will ensure it is providing customers with the most in-depth data available for analysis,” said Jochims. “Together, Persona DB and Mobile Application Analysis enrich and expand the data available to The Network. These capabilities enable businesses to identify cybercriminals in real time while creating enhanced experiences for trusted customers or users.”
