Company Integrates GeoLocation Information to Expand its Fraud Detection Capabilities
Atlanta, GA, April 21, 2009 – IDology, Inc., an innovative provider of identity and age verification solutions, today announced that it has launched, ExpectID GeoTrace, a new addition to its ExpectID product suite. ExpectID GeoTrace provides geolocation information and correlates an IP address with the information found on a person during an identity verification check.
“We wanted to give our clients a more complete picture of their virtual customers by helping them not only know who they are dealing with but also where those customers are,” said John Dancu, IDology’s CEO. “Combining geolocation data with our identity verification services gives our clients a much more powerful way to fight fraud.”
ExpectID GeoTrace enhances the analytics of IDology’s identity verification solutions by correlating IP address information with the identity related information found on a consumer during a verification. This allows businesses the ability to know if consumers not present are where they say they are when conducting business with them online. ExpectID GeoTrace monitors several conditions of an IP address including proxy types, proximity, countries and more. As with IDology’s identity verification solution, ExpectID GeoTrace returns several ID Notes, or fraud flags, when conditions are indicated based on the condition rules an Enterprise has configured within IDology’s IDCenter. The IDCenter functions as an on-demand change management portal that allows clients to manage all aspects of the verification process in real-time.
“Effective identity verification requires more than simple data matching. It’s about the analytics,” said Dancu. “Evaluating where transactions are occurring at the same time identity validation is taking place provides tremendous value in knowing how to handle a transaction. Especially since every business has different levels of acceptable risk.”
ExpectID GeoTrace is an enhancement to IDology’s ExpectID product suite which validates the identity and age of individuals in customer-not-present situations without requiring personal information such as a social security number or driver’s license. Using these solutions, businesses are provided with more than simple pass/fail rates and are informed about what discrepancies are present in the components of an ID. IDology’s solutions can be used in call centers or easily integrated into an online application in a matter of days. ExpectID GeoTrace is currently available for use in conjunction with any of IDology’s identity verification solutions. Contact IDology for more information about pricing.
