Enhance fraud protection whilst providing seamless and personalised experiences

LexisNexis® ThreatMetrix® helps you understand the digital DNA of online users. Spot suspicious behaviour as the transaction occurs and make well-informed trust and identity decisions, without adding unnecessary friction for genuine customers.

How do you identify the good from the bad in a digital world?

The digital economy is fast becoming the dominant economy. This is driving a transformation that has changed consumer interactions from location-centric and in-person, to predominantly digital and increasingly global. The threat of cybercrime grows, data breaches continue to proliferate and identity credentials are widely available on the dark web.

Sophisticated cyberattacks are bypassing traditional security defences by mimicking trusted user behaviour. Static identity assessment methods alone are now much less effective in verifying a person’s real identity. The solution lies in understanding the digital DNA of users and their unique online footprint that knits together trusted digital identities that fraudsters cannot fake.

Balance frictionless customer experience with the ability to confidently detect and prevent fraud

LexisNexis® ThreatMetrix® enables thousands of businesses globally to harness intelligence related to devices, locations, identities and past behaviours to confidently distinguish between trusted and fraudulent behaviour. ThreatMetrix is powered by the global LexisNexis® Digital Identity Network®, a crowdsourced intelligence database aggregating more than 75 billion global transactions each year, including logins, payments, and new account creations.

Digital Identity Intelligence

Detect high-risk events in near real time by analysing connections between devices, locations, and anonymised personal information. Behaviour that deviates from this trusted digital identity can be reliably used to flag potential fraud.

ThreatMetrix® SmartID™

Identify returning users that act suspiciously – such as wiping cookies, using private browsing, or changing parameters to bypass device fingerprinting. This improves returning user detection and reduces false positives.

ThreatMetrix® Mobile

A lightweight software development kit (SDK) for Google Android and Apple iOS mobile devices, providing enhanced fraud protection for the mobile channel, including advanced persistent device identification, anomaly and device spoofing detection, application integrity evaluation, malware detection, location services, jailbreak and root detection technologies.

ThreatMetrix® Dynamic Decision Platform

The market-leading ThreatMetrix® Dynamic Decision Platform® (DDP) provides enhanced authentication, identity verification and fraud decisioning. Integrating Digital Identity Intelligence with behavioural analytics and machine learning capabilities, the platform also incorporates third-party data sources for exception handling. Case management helps to isolate and investigate transactions that require further review. This helps businesses maximise the use of the data that ThreatMetrix provides and make the most appropriate risk decisions.

ThreatMetrix® Behavioural Biometrics

Combine existing digital identity intelligence capabilities with intelligence on how a user interacts with their device. This allows businesses to better profile high-risk behaviour associated with fraudsters, automated bots, social engineering and remote access attacks, as well as build a clearer view of trusted user behaviour over time, reliably identifying changes in expected customer behaviour.

ThreatMetrix® Consortium

Consortium creates an industry-focused, or peer-based, layer that complements an organisation’s local intelligence and the global shared intelligence harnessed through the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network. The information can be operationalised by configuring rules on the data shared at the Consortium level within ThreatMetrix policies.
