Businesses are challenged with detecting increasingly sophisticated fraud attempts. Growing reliance on online channels and a marketplace where 'instant credit approvals' are often demanded presents even greater opportunities for skilled fraudsters. While traditional identity screening can help identify synthetic and true-name fraud attempts, more sophisticated solutions also uncover behavioral patterns that are difficult for fraudsters to fake. FraudIQ Identity Score detects patterns across institutions and industries that are indicative of fraudulent activity in real-time.See Product >>

An Internet-based service, eIDcompare™ validates that an applicant's identity actually exists and provides an overall risk score for that identity. Useful as a 'frictionless' first layer of defense in a multi-layered strategy, eIDcompare leverages a waterfall approach to validating applicant information against multiple data sources. If an identity is connected to questionable activity, eIDcompare delivers a warning indicator, reason codes, data source validation, and either a 'pass' or 'manual review' recommendation. eIDcompare standardizes and reviews applicant-provided information to test for data inconsistencies and irregularities, including checking for details such as data that has been reported as belonging to a deceased person.See Product >>
Using a five-step process which works by asking intelligent questions related to an applicant's history—like past residences, employment, and credit data—eIDverifier® uniquely authenticates their identity.

Leveraging a waterfall approach to validate information against multiple data sources and using these data sources in concert, eIDverifier offers excellent match rates, even for hard-to-ID populations like underbanked, young adults, immigrants, and the elderly.
