Underground Data: The Missing Component of Your Fraud Prevention Framework

Make faster, more accurate fraud decisions using recaptured data from criminal communities.

In a market saturated with anti-fraud and identity verification tools, even the most sophisticated programs are missing insights into data circulating the criminal underground that is allowing criminals to evade detection and perpetrate account takeover, identity fraud, and new account fraud.

SpyCloud Identity Risk Engine provides what no other anti-fraud and identity verification solutions can: actionable, predictive fraud risk assessments based on breach data and malware-stolen credentials, recaptured from the criminal underground using human intelligence (HUMINT).

Stop Hard-to-Detect Fraud with Actionable Analytics

Predict Fraud Tied to Malware

Detect Synthetic Identities

Detect anomalies within a customer’s information indicating that the identity is
fake, stolen, or constructed using sensitive data available on the criminal underground.

Anticipate Account Takeover

Determine which customers are at the highest risk of account takeover due to exposed credentials, bad password hygiene, and other key risk indicators.

Fraud is an arms race, and criminals have an advantage.​

SpyCloud turns recaptured data into your greatest defense.

Identity Risk Engine enhances the power of existing fraud prevention solutions by drawing on the world’s largest database of recaptured data from the criminal underground to illuminate which customers are at highest risk of account takeover, new account fraud, and synthetic identity fraud.
