How we are different

• LexisNexis ThreatMetrix establishes precise identity trust by uniting digital, physical and behavioral identity attributes to help allow a business to confidently differentiate between a trusted customer and a cyber threat in milliseconds. By combining the integral components of LexID® Digital and insights from billions of transactions from the LexisNexis® Digital Identity Network®, LexisNexis ThreatMetrix delivers powerful insights to help quickly answer critical questions across the customer lifecycle:
o New Account Origination – Is this a legitimate customer or fraudster?
o Account Logins - How can I authenticate the account with minimal friction?
o Payment Fraud Management – Are there any abnormal patterns in this transaction?

• The Digital Identity Network uses industry-leading analytic technology and machine learning to aggregate tokenized intelligence related to high-risk behavior, including logins, payments and new account creations from globally contributed transactions from a diverse cross-section of industries. With perspective across multiple industries including, e-commerce, financial services, telecom and gaming, the Digital Identity Network increases in data and relevance with each contributory transaction. This helps to inform and strengthen an immediate response to today’s rapidly emerging networked fraud threats.

• Launched in 2020, LexisNexis® Behavioral Biometrics can also be layered within a ThreatMetrix solution. Behavioral Biometrics delivers informed insights into the patterns and preferences behind trusted relationships to help enable a system to quickly recognize digital behavioral anomalies that signal fraud. This seamlessly supports a multi-factor fraud defense without adding friction by leveraging targeted visibility into risk signals that indicate unusual interactions associated with bots and aggregators.
