Socure’s ID+ uses patented machine learning (ML) & artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to establish trust in online transactions. The platform provides an instant, multidimensional view of customers and potential customers so that financial services organizations can automatically approve digital transactions. ID+ combines AI, ML and clustering algorithms to continuously ingest, normalize and evaluate data from hundreds of online and offline data sources including credit bureaus, email history, phone records, IP addresses, social networks and more. This allows for real-time analysis of massive datasets at machine speed to achieve results far beyond the capabilities of humans and rules-based approaches. ID+ applies predictive analytics to real-time transactions and assigns a risk score to identities, and this is used to determine whether a request should be auto-accepted or flagged for manual review by a fraud analyst.
