Instantly authenticate and score user devices. 

With 90% of the world population owning mobile phones[1], digital device usage and transactions are at an all time high. This increased online activity has exposed organizations to security vulnerabilities and fueled an onslaught of cyber criminals with evolving fraud techniques. 

The pressure to increase security and prevent fraud while maintaining an efficient, non-obtrusive customer experience has necessitated a multi-layered, risk-based approach to identity verification. The logical first step of a multi-layer identity verification strategy is to assess the device being used.
