🤔 The problem

Fraud is growing in many industries

In the last two years, over 66% of tech, media, and telecommunications companies have experienced fraud. It is a growing problem for online retailers, travel agencies, cryptocurrency, and more. Nethone has developed proprietary technology that uses 5,000+ attributes to determine fraud risk and attempts. Some fraud parameters are more crucial to understanding if someone is going to commit a crime. VPN detection is one of them.

⏳ The process

Finding the right IP address provider

While Nethone’s team maintains a state of the art in-house VPN detection solution, it needs a robust and reliable IP address data provider. As a growing scaleup, their team needs to spend more time on developing reliable fraud detection. Ultimately, they chose IPinfo for these reasons:

  • High quality and accurate IP address data
  • Easy to use
  • Saved time for their team

Getting the same quality data as IPinfo with an in-house team is actually quite difficult. That’s why we chose IPinfo.

🔬 The solution

VPN detection to stop fraudsters on the dark web

Nethone’s robust machine-learning technology regularly scans the dark web to detect how fraudsters do their work. And since most users on the dark web hide their identity, VPN detection is an important parameter for fraud scoring. IPinfo’s Privacy Detection data has helped save time for their team while improving their ML models.

Almost every single fraud method involves some form of VPN. It’s a crucial parameter to detect when someone is about to commit a crime
