iovation ReputationManager IDs computers bad guys are using to steal from online businesses and blocks fraudulent transaction attempts

PORTLAND, Ore. " December 9, 2009 " iovation, provider of the world's first device reputation service for preventing online fraud and abuse, announces its newest partner, Litle & Co., a leading provider of online payment processing and consultative merchant services. This partnership will combine the payment management and fraud protection expertise of both companies in order to help online businesses increase payment security and reduce losses.

Together iovation and Litle & Co. have more than two decades of experience working with ecommerce companies to minimize fraud risk when accepting payments online. "Our real-time device reputation service in the payment stream provides a valuable option for Litle & Co.'s customers," said Greg Pierson, iovation CEO and founder.

iovation ReputationManager exposes cybercriminals by identifying the computers they are using to steal from online businesses and blocking fraudulent transaction attempts. iovation shares the reputations of those devices with customers through the world's largest database of device fraud histories, enabling companies around the globe to benefit from each other.

"Like iovation, Litle & Co. is extremely focused on the needs of online and card-not-present merchants," said Jason Pavona, executive vice president of sales and marketing, Litle & Co. "iovation's niche expertise is a perfect fit with our payment management engine for direct commerce, which is designed to offer our merchants fraud solutions that are specific to their needs."
