Protect your bottom line

Identity Verification prevents sophisticated attacks and reduces fraud losses with an anti-fraud engine that analyzes hundreds of risk signals.

  • Behavioral analytics

    Monitor how users enter PII and catch behavior consistent with bad actors, fraud rings, and bots.

  • Email and phone risk

    Check if the number and address are new, disposable, registered with external accounts, or compromised in breaches.

  • Device and network risk

    Detect the use of VPN or Tor, IP geolocation and timezone mismatch, incognito browsers, or repeat sessions from the same device.

  • Synthetic and stolen identities

    Understand whether identity information is fabricated, manipulated, or stolen.
