ThreatMetrix®, the Digital Identity Company®, provides an end-to-end platform for digital identity intelligence and trust decisioning. Our solutions recognize up to 95 percent of returning website visitors. We instantly detect high-risk transactions and dynamically score them, enabling digital businesses to safely grow online revenue and personalize the digital experience for trusted customers. With ThreatMetrix, sales conversion rates rise and fewer customers get flagged for review. Fraud, security and payment operations run more efficiently. Operational costs decrease and, best of all, fraudsters often leave for greener pastures. We believe security doesn’t need to come at the expense of profitability. Security and fraud prevention simply needs to be better, not harder for legitimate customers. That’s profitability and security without compromise.
