San Jose, Calif. – December 13, 2016 – Leading ecommerce fraud prevention company, Signifyd and ThreatMetrix®, The Digital Identity Company® announced today they will combine efforts to eliminate online fraud for their customers. The partnership enables ecommerce merchants to remove the liability for fraud by leveraging the power of the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network® through Signifyd’s Guaranteed Payments solution.

Signifyd’s VP of Partnerships, Skye Spear, summarizes what the partnership means for ecommerce merchants, “ThreatMetrix provides global shared intelligence on more than a billion digital identities. The ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network provides additional insights for Signifyd’s machine learning capabilities enabling us to authenticate orders from customers who may have previously been denied. We’re able to incorporate additional data in real-time to identify and mitigate sophisticated fraud scenarios across one or more of our customers emulating multiple buying identities. Our goal is to increase decision confidence for online merchants through a managed service that’s backed by a financial guarantee.”

Through the partnership, Signifyd will leverage the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network to further enhance Signifyd’s Guaranteed Payments, which provide a 100% financial guarantee against fraud on every approved order. This new intelligence and subsequent guarantee allows merchants to accept more orders without the risk of chargebacks as the liability of fraud losses are shifted to Signifyd. Guaranteed Payments are ideal for fast-growing businesses, merchants in fraud-prone industries and those looking to expand overseas or in new markets and segments previously considered too risky.

“As online fraud evolves at an ever-increasing pace, merchants need new ways to mitigate risk. Signifyd’s use of the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network in its Guaranteed Payments solution allows merchants to aggressively grow their business and accept more legitimate customers without risk,” commented Leah Evanski, ThreatMetrix VP Strategic Alliances.

Signifyd and ThreatMetrix together provide a winning alternative to merchants using restrictive platforms that decline legitimate orders, delay shipments and are unable to prevent chargebacks. Even other fraud prevention platforms with machine learning lack the closed loop for data feedback that Signifyd and ThreatMetrix provide with Guaranteed Payments and the Digital Identity Network. This partnership allows Signifyd and ThreatMetrix to leverage extensive fraud data and expertise to stop subsequent attempts at fraud, regardless of merchant size, industry or value of transaction. With more data and complete transparency, Signifyd and ThreatMetrix can significantly reduce financial losses from fraud for merchants.
