Top Context-Based Security and Fraud Prevention Leader Recognized for Continuous Efforts in Information Security and Safeguarding Online Identities using Global Shared Intelligence

San Jose, CA – April 22, 2015 – ThreatMetrix®, the fastest-growing provider of context-based security and advanced fraud prevention solutions, today announces it has won in two categories in the 2015 Cyber Defense Magazine Awards, including Best Anti-Malware Product and Hot Company in Multi-Factor Authentication.

The Cyber Defense Magazine Awards recognize leading companies in the cybersecurity space that strive to curate cutting-edge knowledge on cybercrime and create advanced information security solutions to solve the online security issues facing businesses today. The awards were announced during the RSA Conference 2015, held this week in San Francisco.

In conjunction with the conference, ThreatMetrix announced the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network, the world’s largest digital identity network, leveraging global shared intelligence to safeguard online customer identities. This offering creates an anonymized digital identity of consumers based on device, persona and behavior from every transaction, account creation and account login.

“The landscape of fraud is changing as cybercriminals’ networks grow in breadth and sophistication, capitalizing on the digital debris of data breach fallouts,” said Bert Rankin, chief marketing officer at ThreatMetrix. “Our team continuously enhances our solutions to stay one step ahead of cybercriminals by providing businesses with an anonymized view of their customers based on devices, personas and behaviors. Being recognized by Cyber Defense Magazine as a leader in both anti-malware and multi-factor authentication is a ringing endorsement for ThreatMetrix.”

The Best Anti-Malware award recognizes ThreatMetrix for its success offering high-level malware detection for businesses through the TrustDefender™ Cybercrime Protection Platform which combines comprehensive data collection, behavioral analytics and the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network into a powerful, risk-based security and fraud prevention solution. This solution uses integrated malware and device identification, enabling ThreatMetrix customers to proceed with legitimate transactions while screening out fraudsters and criminal activity without added user friction.

The Hot Company in Multi-Factor Authentication award identifies ThreatMetrix as a leader in offering multi-factor authentication (MFA) solutions for financial institutions to provide frictionless customer logins, decrease operational costs and improve cybercrime detection. In contrast to the design of many legacy MFA solutions, ThreatMetrix can easily support financial institution authentication requirements and provide trusted customers access without excessive step-up authentication. ThreatMetrix delivers this by leveraging the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network, providing real-time risk analysis based on billions of Web and mobile transactions.
