ThreatMetrix Summer ’17 Release Delivers New Data Discovery and Visual Analytics for Fraud and Authentication Insights at Speed

Posted August 10, 2017

Advancements in reporting, data visualization, geo-location capabilities and extended identity verification services bolster end-to-end decision platform

San Jose, CA—(August 10, 2017) – ThreatMetrix®, The Digital Identity Company®, today unveiled key enhancements to its Dynamic Decision Platform including state-of-the-art data discovery and visualization to enable smarter decisions for fraud prevention, authentication and threat detection.

To combat the increasingly organized and networked nature of cybercrime today, ThreatMetrix is equipping businesses with the ability to pinpoint meaningful information within increasingly large data sets, to accurately differentiate legitimate customers from fraudsters in real-time. This capability is incorporated into the Dynamic Decision Platform, which provides end-to-end identity, fraud and authentication orchestration, leveraging ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Intelligence combined with best-in-class integrated services.

“The latest additions to the ThreatMetrix platform give both business executives and fraud analysts unique insights at their fingertips – at speed and at scale,” says Alisdair Faulkner, chief products officer with ThreatMetrix. “With visualization of the billions of anonymized data points associated with your customers’ transactional history, the ThreatMetrix platform becomes the go-to tool for understanding your digital environment, providing faster insights to understand behavioral trends, and determining the true digital identity of your users.”

In addition to new reporting and visualization features, ThreatMetrix has bolstered its location and identity verification services. This further strengthens user behavior profiling and the ability to establish legitimate identities online.

Location is a key trust indicator when analyzing digital transactions. ThreatMetrix enables businesses to understand the dynamic relationship between true geo-location at the time of a transaction, the locations associated with a user, along with the shipping and billing addresses provided.

Brand new data discovery and visual analytics capabilities

  • Discovery and reporting on billions of data points covering the entire transaction history
  • Instantaneous execution based on state-of-the-art big data infrastructure and data acceleration layer
  • Fraud pattern identification, with advanced charts that are customized to easily visualize large data volumes
  • Flexible visualization options include heat maps, funnels, correlation flows and interactive maps
  • Easier collaboration with built-in self-service data export and scheduled email snapshots

Identity verification services

  • Out-of-the-box integration of dynamic digital identity intelligence with identity verification services based on name, address, and date of birth
  • Support of compliance with the USA Patriot Act through the validation of identities against government lists of known or suspected terrorists

Improved location services

In addition, ThreatMetrix has introduced ZIP code geocoding, which allows automatic distance calculation and correlation between physical addresses provided (e.g. billing and shipping) and virtual location (e.g. IP address, Wi-Fi location and GPS, etc.) to improve location-based behavioral analysis.

This new release builds upon the proven success of ThreatMetrix in risk-based authentication. Last month, ThreatMetrix was named the Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Risk-Based Authentication, Q3 2017, and was cited for its strong device support and flexible case management.
