Company to Use Industry-Leading IP Data to Help eCommerce Businesses
Fight Online Fraud

SAN FRANCISCO & ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/ecommerce?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#ecommercelt;/agt;–CNP EXPO Digital Element, the global geolocation data
and services provider, announced today during CNP Expo that NS8, a
fast-growing ecommerce SaaS company that combats online fraud, will
incorporate a number of its NetAcuity® datasets to enhance
risk-assessment solutions for online businesses.

NS8’s technology uses behavioral analytics and real-time scoring to
optimize and protect online stores against threats such as transaction
fraud, advertising fraud and site reliability issues. The addition of
multiple IP datasets from Digital Element into NS8’s proprietary EQ8
Scoring Engine™ will strengthen the real-time, accurate intelligence
that it provides its clients.

“Digital Element is an unquestioned leader in global IP intelligence,
and we are extremely pleased to be deploying its NetAcuity datasets into
our risk scoring,” said NS8 Chief Technology Officer Sam Sesti. “Being
able to leverage Digital Element’s vast proxy
database, reverse-geocoding data feeds, and other datasets will be a
tremendous asset for us in accurately identifying malicious
activity. This technology integration is another big step
forward in the enhancement of our solution.”

NS8 will incorporate the NetAcuity
Pulse PlusTM
geolocation solution. NetAcuity Pulse Plus
is a first-of-its-kind ZIP+4 targeting solution that combines
device-derived data with Digital Element’s proprietary reverse-geocoding
data feeds. Additionally, NS8 will utilize the company’s extensive proxy
database that is updated daily, as well as other different IP datasets
outside of geolocation.

“Retailers’ demands for data are only increasing as various types of
online fraud grow and continue to negatively impact the online shopping
experience,” said Rob Friedman, co-founder and executive vice president,
Digital Element. “Information is the new currency in the retail world.
NS8 has recognized the power of combining our reliable and highly
accurate datasets to build strong digital intelligence to help
assess―and ultimately prevent―real fraud threats.”

Digital Element’s IP datasets will be incorporated into the next NS8
software release, tentatively scheduled for June 2019.

Both companies are participating in the CNP Expo, a leading e-commerce
conference and expo focused on payments and fraud, in San
Francisco this week. Digital Element is exhibiting at Booth 613, and NS8
can be found at Booth 507.
