41st Parameter® Positioned in the Visionaries Quadrant for Web Fraud Detection Magic Quadrant

Company Recognized Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - February 24, 2009) - 41st Parameter Inc., the leading provider of internet fraud intervention and detection services and technology, today announced Gartner, Inc. has positioned the company as a visionary in the fast-growing web fraud detection industry.

Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Web Fraud Detection placed 41st Parameter in the visionaries quadrant based on the company's completeness of vision and ability to execute. Criteria must be met for inclusion in Gartner's Magic Quadrant. Magic Quadrants use standard criteria in two categories: completeness of vision and ability to execute.

According to Gartner's report, "Web fraud detection vendors are experiencing high-sales growth rates, driven by increasing cyber attacks in a weakened global economy. Larger security vendors are refocusing their efforts in this area, while smaller, low-cost competitors typically provide better customer service and more innovation."(1)

"Criminals have become more aggressive and sophisticated in their Web fraud attacks and companies need to embrace technology that quickly and efficiently identifies fraud, fraud rings, and reduces their fraud losses," said Ori Eisen, founder and chief innovation officer of 41st Parameter. "Top financial institutions, international airlines and leading retailers rely on 41st Parameter's patented technology to more effectively detect fraud using our tagless device ID PCPrint™, FraudNet and PhishingNet™ risk engines, and link analysis capabilities. We are honored that Gartner has recognized us in this year's Magic Quadrant."
