ReputationManager 360 Solution Recognized by Independent Research Firm

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - Mar 9, 2012) - iovation, the Device Reputation Authority™ protecting online businesses from fraud and abuse, announced that Forrester Research, Inc., one of the world's most respected independent research firms, has named iovation a "strong performer" in its report evaluating risk-based authentication providers; "The Forrester Wave™: Risk-Based Authentication, Q1 2012."

"iovation provides an association network and has a great network of fraud integrations," writes Forrester's Andras Cser and Eve Maler in the report.

Forrester only evaluated risk-based authentication providers with product revenues more than $2 million, and an install base with credible, named references in financial services, healthcare, insurance, public sector, and retail. It used a combination of four data sources to assess the strengths and weaknesses of each solution:

  • Vendor surveys
  • Product demos
  • Independent, hands-on product testing
  • Customer reference calls
