ID Analytics Launches ID Score 9.0, Partners with ThreatMetrix and Others

idanalytics.jpg

Today, San Diego-based ID Analytics launched the newest version of its flagship fraud detection platform, ID Score.

This newest release improves the effectiveness of the company’s existing identity fraud detection by:

    • Providing more insight into consumer behavior
    • Uncovering the risk level of the user’s device
    • Finding associations between device usage and fraudulent occurrences

As a part of this effort, it has partnered with device authentication and intelligence providers, including ThreatMetrix, to incorporate their risk assessments into the consumer’s ID score itself.

The end result, ID Score 9.0, is a fraud assessment that is composed of both identity and fraud risk.

ID Analytics demonstrated My ID Alerts at FinovateSpring 2011 and ThreatMetrix debuted its Fraud Prevention 2.0 at FinovateStartup 2009.
