FullContact launches Verify product to optimize IDV and fraud prevention models
May 17, 2022, Denver, CO — FullContact, the industry leader in identity resolution as a service, today announced the official launch of Verify, a new identity product that powers identity verification (IDV) and fraud prevention. Verify provides data and intelligence to optimize IDV and fraud prevention models, allowing platforms to enhance solution security—while also reducing friction in the customer experience.
“While fraud is on the rise and fraud attempts are getting more sophisticated, people still get frustrated when there is friction in their identity experience,” explains Chris Harrison, CEO at FullContact. “The identity data and intelligence from our Verify product helps IDV and fraud prevention platforms confidently ID the person behind every interaction, in real-time, to smooth the customer experience and help their clients acquire more legitimate business.”
How Verify works for IDV and fraud prevention
Verify provides real-time signals, matches and activity scores from FullContact’s identity graph to identify real people and determine risk. The graph bridges offline and digital identifiers to access insights not available via traditional techniques.
- Signals. Verify signals provide transactional signal data, plus confidence scores about a given person’s identity, activity, and risk level. Signals are highly specific and provide high-value information. They are perfect for building and training advanced IDV and fraud models.
- Match. Matches provide insights on whether or not a platform’s data on a specific person matches the data in FullContact’s identity graph for that same person—and offers a risk score. Matches are ideal for identifying risk on a form field or application, such as an application for a credit card or small loan.
- Activity. Verify activity scores indicate how much activity FullContact’s identity graph has cataloged from a specific identifier (e.g. an email address). This activity score indicates how legitimate a given data point is. Long-term regular activity is a positive signal. New, sporadic activity is a negative signal.
Verify offers access to diverse, high-assurance identity data—and resulting insights—via real-time API or batch intelligence install.
