Experian And Iovation Collaborate To Prevent Fraud With Identity Verification And Device Reputation

Integrated offering will use Experian's Precise IDSM platform

COSTA MESA, Calif., Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Experian® today announced that it is working in partnership with iovation, the Device Reputation Authority(TM), to provide a comprehensive suite of identity verification and device reputation services. These services protect businesses and agencies that deliver customer services via both online and mobile access channels from fraudulent transactions, fraud rings or recurring fraud activities.

The two companies will work together globally to fight fraud by using a combination of identity authentication, shared device reputation and real-time risk evaluation. The integrated joint offering will utilize Experian's industry-leading Precise IDSM platform. The platform features risk-based authentication encompassing highly predictive risk assessments through a combination of identity element verification, risk scoring, progressive out-of-wallet questioning and comprehensive decisioning based on a holistic view of an identity in use. This combination helps to refine decisions on which identities should be allowed to enter a system and which should be further verified via alternate processes.

"Experian is committed to security, and by working with iovation we are able to leverage our combined expertise and provide our clients with the technologies to help them prevent fraud and achieve optimal efficiency while minimizing customer friction," said Charles Chung, president of Decision Analytics North America at Experian. "We are excited to be working with an innovative company such as iovation that is on the vanguard of online trust, reputation and fraud prevention technologies."

Working in tandem with Experian's Precise ID platform, iovation's ReputationManager 360 service utilizes the past and current behavior of more than 1 billiondevices to identify and re-recognize devices logging into an organization's Website in real time. This unique approach also exposes relationships among accounts with multiple vendors and identifies all of the devices associated with an individual without needing personally identifiable data. Doing so helps businesses prevent fraudulent transactions before they happen and root out fraud rings or recurring fraud activities -- all while protecting the privacy of consumers.

Experian and iovation have worked together to show U.S. financial institutions how to implement the recent FFIEC Guidance entitled Supplement to Authentication in an Internet Banking Environment, which asks financial institutions to mitigate risk using a variety of processes and technologies employing a multilayered approach. The joint offering from Experian and iovation allowed businesses to meet these requirements and move beyond simple device identification to complex device identification and out-of-wallet identity verification procedures.

"We are thrilled to collaborate with Experian on helping our joint clientsavoid fraud losses by stopping cybercriminals before they damage their business or customers. Combining iovation's power of device reputation with Experian's extensive identity-based services is game-changing," said Jon Karl' co-founder and vice president of corporate development at iovation. "iovation is committed to identifying suspicious activity, exposing the size and scope of problems, and helping our customers know whom to trust online."
