How Ekata Works

Businesses query our APIs or Pro Insight SaaS tool by sending the data they collect from their customers and use in business decision logic (such as email, name, phone, physical address, etc.). Our APIs and SaaS tool uses the power of the Ekata Identity Engine to return a comprehensive identity risk score and detailed information on the customer’s data elements to the business.
