San Jose, CA – February 23, 2012 – ThreatMetrix™, the fastest-growing provider of integrated cybercrime prevention solutions, announced today that it has been positioned as a “strong performer” in “The Forrester Wave™: Risk-Based Authentication, Q1 2012” (February 2012) report. Forrester Research, Inc.’s 16-criteria evaluation of risk-based authentication vendors identifies the six leading vendors in this category. The report details how each vendor measures up to help security and risk professionals select the right solution for their authentication requirements.
“The FFIEC specifically calls out the need to provide complex device identification and we are pleased that we were recognized by Forrester as a strong provider of this technology,” said Bert Rankin, vice president of marketing, ThreatMetrix. “Our device identification solution, TrustDefender™ ID, has been implemented by more than 600 customers around the world. To further enhance our ability to reduce risk associated with online transactions, ThreatMetrix procured a range of malware detection and remediation solutions with the acquisition of TrustDefender in January 2012.”
Following the acquisition, ThreatMetrix expanded its cybersecurity offering by integrating complex device identification and malware detection into a multi-layered platform. This allows ThreatMetrix to treat fraud prevention and malware protection as a single problem, delivering intelligence-sharing capabilities and real-time responses to potential threats. Not only can ThreatMetrix screen transactions to detect fraudulent activity, but the ThreatMetrix™ Cybercrime Defender Platform can detect computers of legitimate customers that have been compromised with malware that could result in stolen identities or session hijacking.
“With the addition of integrated server-side and endpoint-based device analytics through our TrustDefender™ Cloud and TrustDefender™ Client solutions, ThreatMetrix is the only company that provides both cloud- and client-based device identification and malware protection for FFIEC compliance,” added Rankin.
