Add email intelligence as a layer of defense to fraud prevention.

LexisNexis® Emailage is a powerful fraud risk scoring solution fueled by email intelligence. 

Fight Fraud Without Adding Friction

Your customers demand the flexibility to interact with you through multiple channels. Whether using a smartphone, tablet, laptop or other device, they expect you to recognize their identity and grant them fast, easy access to your system. 

At the same time, they want assurance that their personal information is secure and fraudsters cannot hijack their account. That is an extremely challenging task.

With the growth of digital channels for consumers, your ability to assess risk on digital elements is critical. This is especially true if your organization, like so many these days, minimizes the amount of personal identity information you collect to speed up onboarding of new customers and limit data exposure risk. Keeping customer interactions seamless and friction-free while preventing fraud requires multiple layers of defense.

Leveraging Email Intelligence to Assess Risk

Security begins with verifying a consumer’s identity and assessing risk at multiple customer touchpoints like account opening, account maintenance and online transactions. Emailage is a proven fraud prevention solution that uses email intelligence as a core risk identifier. 

It assesses risks by evaluating email address metadata points such as domain details, email details, risk indicators and, when available, other personally identifiable information (PII). Emailage then delivers succinct decisioning data and an email risk score that helps stop fraud without negative impact to genuine customers.

Email Addresses are Unique Identifiers

Email addresses are ideally suited to identify customers as part of your organization’s fraud and identity management strategy. After all, email is already a primary contact channel that organizations use to reach their customers. 

More importantly, it’s a unique global identifier that unlocks digital engagement and transactions in every industry because it is:
  • Used in virtually 100% of all online transactions
  • Rich with transaction history and behavior
  • Difficult to change because it links to all of a person’s online accounts
91% of users have the same email address for more than 3 years, and 51% have the same email address for more than 10 years.1

To ignore the value of an email address combined with email risk intelligence can provide, when informing risk decisions, would be a missed opportunity to prevent fraud.
