SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 29, 2006 -- The 41st Parameter, a leader in agent-less, covert fraud detection and prevention for the online channel, today announced an agreement with Actimize, Inc., a global provider of risk, fraud prevention and compliance solutions to financial institutions, to support integration of the Company's new PCPrint technology. Actimize will add integration support for PCPrint as part of its own transaction-based anti-fraud solutions for the financial services and government markets. With PCPrint, Actimize customers will have access to enhanced capabilities to identify and track PCs and other devices used for online fraud and identity theft.

"Device detection is critical, but knowing if someone is testing a bank's front line defenses is just as valuable," said Ido Ophir, vice president of product management, Actimize. "The 41st Parameter has critical expertise combined with technology that can pinpoint fraudulent account access -- even when no transaction takes place."

PCPrint invisibly collects more than 41 machine parameters from any online device to generate a digital "fingerprint" used to identify in real-time legitimate versus suspect PCs visiting a Web site. The product can differentiate individual devices regardless of past registration, the credentials presented or the Internet connection (IP Address). Capable of generating 1.461 Quindecillion (or 10 to the 48th power) unique device "fingerprints," the product can identify legitimate versus suspect PCs with unprecedented accuracy.

As the world's first standard for precision PC recognition to help online business combat Internet fraud and identity theft, PCPrint can detect any type of PC, PDA, laptop or mobile device connected to the Internet. The technology is completely invisible to end users, and requires no user enrollment or registration, nor does it require the use of cookies, tags or software downloads.

"PCPrint brings a powerful device recognition capability to customers that need to carefully monitor online activity, transactions and account access," said Ori Eisen, founder and chairman, The 41st Parameter. "Offering integration support with the Actimize platform will give banks and government agencies alike another powerful weapon in their arsenal against Internet fraud and identity theft."
