Mastercard Identity Data and Signals

We have two distinct and mutually exclusive data properties; the Identity Graph and the Identity Network that make up our Identity Engine. We use these two data assets, along with sophisticated machine learning capabilities, to power our global APIs and SaaS solution.

How Mastercard Identity works

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