Device intelligence is more than accurately recognizing a device.

It’s about understanding the DNA of the device by considering context, behavior, and reputation.  Context tells us where the device is really located. Behavior shows us what a device has been up to recently, including if it is trying to fake what it really is, where it is really located, or has an abnormally high amount of online activity . Reputation tells us if there is a past history of fraud associated with the device. Watch this short video to learn more.

You've got fraud. We have solutions.

Fighting Fraud with Device Reputation

Wouldn’t it be useful to know if a device had a history of the type of fraud that you’re most concerned with, such as credit card application fraud, stolen identity or claims fraud? Then you could stop just that transaction, without getting in the way of good customers.

Device reputation, a unique capability provided by iovation, does just that by telling you if the device has a history of fraud or abuse, and if so, the specific type.

Identify patterns that indicate fraud.

Establish fraud risk and the need for further transaction review based on suspicious behavior and inconsistent data elements. Device anomalies can help you accurately detect fraud attempts by fraudsters and stop them. Our fraud detection and prevention solutions allow you to separate cybercriminals  from your good customers.

Uncover new fraud using advanced transaction search and reporting.

By using our device-based fraud detection intelligence with your transaction information* such as purchase amount, SKU, email address, phone number, referring URL, and hardware details, you can better detect online fraud. After adding transaction details to your current API calls, you can set up real-time business rules in order to act on this data. Get answers to questions such as:

  • Is the transaction amount within an expected range?

  • Is the email address used in a credit application coming from a risky domain?

  • Is an applicant using multiple email addresses from the same computer?

  • Has the phone number for the account been used with more than three devices?

  • Which accounts have applied for more than $1,000 in credit in the last day?

  • Have any devices spent more than $1,200 in the last 12 hours?

*Due to varying international privacy regulations, some transaction insight fields are not available in some geo-political regions.
