Experian cited in Mobile Fraud Management Solutions report PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 17 June 2016
Experian®, the leading global information services company, today announced that it has been included in Forrester’s 2016 “Vendor Landscape: Mobile Fraud Management Solutions[1]” report, and listed as having nine out of a possible 10 capabilities needed to combat mobile fraud.

In addition, Experian was cited as having one of the highest total fraud management revenues in 2015, between $200 million and $250 million. Only one other vendor in the report was cited with revenue over $200 million. Through what we consider to be this significant market presence, Experian provides fraud management solutions to some of the world’s largest brands in financial services, insurance, and retail.

The report cited Experian’s use of identity data usage velocities on mobile devices, which can detect when a fraudster is applying for an account from their mobile device by comparing the details of the application (user information) with the data and behavior that the vendor observes about the device itself. It can detect if the same mobile device, or group of devices, is attempting to open multiple accounts.

“We believe the findings in this report further validate the power of Experian’s fraud management solutions,” said Steve Platt, global executive vice president, Fraud and Identity, Experian. “There is incredible innovation taking place in mobile today and our clients need to be able to keep up with the pace of change, while also providing reliable protection. We feel this report is a noteworthy validation of our commitment to building a safer environment for consumers across the globe while ensuring a positive customer experience.”

Among the reasons that Experian is cited in the report is that it offers a number of solutions that fall into Forrester’s Mobile Fraud Vendor Capabilities, including:

· Mobile fraud management models built-in
· User profiling across mobile devices
· Unsupervised machine learning for mobile behavior profiling
· Built-in support for GPS data in risk scoring
· Built-in support for power settings monitoring in risk scoring
· Built-in support for accelerometer data in risk scoring
· Built-in detection for device jailbreaking/rooting
· Own device fingerprint and device reputation
· Mobile SDK for app developers to collect data on device.

According to Forrester, US mobile commerce (both phones and tablets) will top an estimated $252 billion by 2020, while mobile payments will exceed an estimated $141 billion in 2019. The report notes that in order to protect consumers and the firm’s profits, it is imperative that security and risk (S&R) professionals adapt to these mobile fraud attacks.
