ThreatMetrix launches TrustDefender Mobile

TrustDefender Mobile

The cybercrime prevention solution provider’s new product is a software development kit (SDK) designed to identify fraudulent transactions originating from mobile applications (view press release). The new solution is a continuation of ThreatMetrix’s malware detection and cookieless device identification technology for computers, providing the same fraud screening capability for mobile as used for browser based transactions.

The solution is an embeddable library for smartphones that creates cross-validating device fingerprints based on hardware, operating system and application parameters. Businesses can embed the solution into company smartphones and activate a comprehensive fraud screening solution covering both browser and mobile application transactions.

Alisdair Faulkner, chief products officer at ThreatMetrix says the new solution “ensures that trusted user device identification and reputation is tightly integrated into a single platform for reducing risk across all web transactions and applications.”

The solution is currently available on the iOS operating system. It is in Beta for other devices and due to launch later this year.
