The Digital Identity category (or as Gartner refers to, Identity & Access Management) represents one of the fastest growing markets in the infosecurity industry. As the number of high-profile breaches continues to make headlines and consumers become increasingly frustrated with the general inadequacy of passwords, it's no wonder that there are so many technology providers bringing new solutions to market with an eye towards helping the way businesses authenticate their customers and limit their exposure to attacks and fraudulent transactions.

With so many vendors providing solutions across the device intelligence, fraud prevention and authentication spectrum, it can be challenging for end-user organizations to fully grasp this evolving landscape and each provider's unique capabilities. Fortunately, PYMTS.com, the payment industry's leading trade publication, published its comprehensive 2017 Digital Identity Tracker report which ranks the top providers across four categories: Consumer Data, Device Intelligence, Transaction Behavior and Multifactor Authentication.

Out of a total of 24 vendors scored in this category, iovation ranked as the highest scored provider of Device Intelligence, based in large part on the fact that our proprietary device intelligence network has collectively seen more than 4 billion devices and has recorded more than 42 million reports of fraud and abuse. If you're looking to get a better understanding of this emerging category and the vendors competing in the space, this report is a great place to start. You can download the report in full here.
