Identity Assessment and Assurance Challenges We Address

Enhance your ability to verify self-reported information during the application or onboarding process and confidently assess identity risk in near real-time.

It starts by broadening your view of the population. Our 10,000+ data sources include:

  • public records, commercial & government data
  • alternative data that provides significantly better information on the unbanked — a sizeable portion of U.S. adults
  • healthcare data for government organizations needing to quickly understand providers as individuals, practitioners and businesses

Data alone isn’t enough. Using our proprietary LexID®️ linking technology, we distill all of that information down to the most relevant data points and resolve it to a single individual with 99.99% accuracy. 

We also apply automated identity verification tools to minimize backlogs and create a streamlined, people-friendly onboarding experience while protecting your program. Quickly detect anomalies — including subtle indicators of synthetic fraud. Score risks. Visually link and cluster data into a digital and physical identity ecosystem for faster, clearer insights and the building blocks to a stronger security stance.

Triangulate Multiple Data Sources to Combat Synthetic Identity Fraud

Spot anomalies like identity documents and attributes that don’t align, suspicious relationships, time-on-file/number of sources reported, and more

Drawing on powerful combinations of behavioral biometrics and identity intelligence from the digital and physical worlds, government agencies can quickly vet identities, link a person and their activity across touchpoints, and spot potential fraud threats.

We help you build a smart identity proofing strategy that responsively layers authentication steps based on both identity and transaction risk.

  • Go beyond simple username and password authentication methods, while minimizing friction and protecting the user against fraudulent access to their account and sensitive data
  • Give trusted individuals a streamlined experience — while new or riskier visitors receive additional scrutiny or step-up authentication factors
  • Protect against internal threats by authenticating telework employees and government contractors

Many of our multi-factor authentication solutions work “behind the scenes” to gather observable data on user behavior, their environment and more. Our solutions help lessen the burden on known, trusted individuals and can limit your intake of personally identifiable information while ensuring higher standards of security for your agency. Behavioral analytics and machine learning quickly adapt to changing behavior, reducing false positives for faster, more effective decisioning with less manual intervention. 

We Partnered On the Initiative gives the public a simple way to interact with participating federal agencies using a single identity proofing and sign-on process

LexisNexis® Risk Solutions was rated a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Risk-Based Authentication, Q2 2020 report
Digital transformation is sweeping through the government sector — but adding web or mobile self-serve options for everyday transactions (e.g. change of address, renewals, etc.) is only the first step. You also need strong digital identity assessment strategies that optimize the citizen’s experience over the course of the relationship, and across touchpoints. 

LexisNexis®️ Risk Solutions helps government agencies manage identities across a growing landscape of channels, devices and change. The goal: reduce friction for known and trusted individuals, while simultaneously managing risk. 

LexID® Digital — our unique digital customer identifier — merges offline and online data in near real time to establish true digital identities. It’s a key part of the LexisNexis® Digital Intelligence Network, a global cross-industry contributory network of intelligence around high-risk transactional behavior (logins, payments, new account creations and more). Detect unusual activity such as location anomalies, new email addresses originating from the same device, or new delivery addresses. 

Behavioral biometrics takes things a step further to uncover irregularities in user mannerisms (e.g., keystrokes, swipe speed, device position/angle) that suggest impersonation.

Your agency continues to face ever more complex, sophisticated security threats — disguised in synthetic identities, bot and malware activity, device takeovers and other opaque schemes. Our solutions arm you with strong defense mechanisms.
