Using Shared Intelligence to Combat Cybercrime
Web workers have a new tool in their fight against cybercrime.
Digital identity solution ThreatMetrix released the Digital Identity Graph recently, a graph framework for anonymized global digital identities on the 'Net.
The Digital Identity Graph essentially maps the billions of "identity" associations among people and their communication devices, account credentials, telephone numbers, physical addresses and the businesses with which they interact. ThreatMetrix will be able to define digital persona relationships on a global scale, enabling businesses to identify fraud and cyberattacks without compromising privacy.
“Establishing authentication in today’s global and digital economy is incredibly complex – ask anyone working in fraud prevention, enterprise information technology, or even the front lines of small businesses all over the world,” said Armen Najarian, chief marketing officer. “We believe that our achievements mapping the Digital Identity Graph will pave the way for broad industry adoption and aid in solving unique authentication challenges confronting the public and private sectors.”
