Fight registration fraud and high risk transactions.

Today we released v2.24 of the vetting service. We have now processed over 12 million vets, and with our new customers on board we expect to exceed 80 million in the next twelve months. Our community database has grown to over a million records with history on both bad actors as well as good actors.

Improved Proxy Detection

We have added over 1 million proxy servers to our internal database as well as incorporated some 3rd party proxy detection listings for both anonymous and transparent proxy detection. In addition, private IPs as well as IPs with no geo information will be marked as having some risk.

Fingerprint Scoring
Using our Talon JavaScript in your signup forms automatically assigns each device (desktop or mobile) a fingerprint. Every vet score for that fingerprint is logged, creating a device ID score. If the device is associated with risk, you will see a fingerprint score in the JSON. Our fingerprinting has been very successful at stopping bad actors using proxy, bots, and fake sign-ups from multiple IPs, emails, and domains. See example below.

Fingerprint search in portal *
On the Vet page in the portal, you can now search for a fingerprint and see all the vets associated with that device.

Additional Information in Portal Reporting *
We have expanded the risk issue descriptions for the area tabs in the portal. For example, under domain, you can now see the count of domains less than 5 days old, parked domains by hosting company, etc.

New “details” section in the JSON response *
We have added an optional details section to the response JSON. Currently this new section returns the city, country and timezone of the IP as well as the device fingerprint. Later we will add additional scoring details such as “Domain Does Not Exist”, “Proxy”, “Spam History”, etc. so you can better understand the risks and issues of each scoring area within the JSON response for each vet in real-time.

Updated Activity Portal Page *
Redesigned the activity reporting page that lists incidents tagged with multiple sign-ups. Added buttons for correct and false feedback as well as pagination for account with large number of incidents.

* must subscribe to annual full service plan
