41st Parameter Positioned on the Border of the Leaders and Visionaries Quadrants for 2011 Web Fraud Detection Magic Quadrant

Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - May 25, 2011) - 41st Parameter, the leading provider of cross-channel fraud detection and prevention solutions, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. on the border of the Leaders and Visionaries quadrants in the 2011 Magic Quadrant for Web Fraud Detection.

"Demand for Web fraud detection software and services are at an all-time high. Hackers and criminals continue attacking financial services and retail firms, and are increasingly reaching into other sectors, such as healthcare, insurance, government, small businesses, Internet service providers, security firms, defense contractors and technology companies," said Avivah Litan, vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner, in the report. "Targeted 'spear-phishing' attacks that come loaded with malware are more frequently launched against nonprivileged and privileged users who have access to sensitive data or systems that can benefit the thieves financially or in many other ways. This has put a wide variety of enterprises across the globe on alert that they need better protection for their accounts and information."

"Our rapid expansion as a company is attributable to verified performance in helping customers defeat fraud, as well as the rapid adoption of our SaaS platform across all vertical and geographic markets we serve," said Ori Eisen, founder and chief innovation officer of 41st Parameter. "We believe our position in the Magic Quadrant for Web Fraud Detection recognizes the strengths of 41st Parameter and we are pleased to have received this recognition from Gartner."
