Evaluate the Risk of Any Address With Ekata Address Risk API

Address Risk API provides rich metadata and risk signals around any given address and help trust and safety teams predict fraudulent activity.

  • Gain insight into how an address is being used online: Ekata Identity Network provides insights into how a physical address is used in online transactions, giving you a more comprehensive picture of a consumer. It can help you answer questions such as:
    • How often has this address been used?
    • How many merchants has it been used at?
    • How often is it used with other identity elements?
    • When was this address first and last seen?
  • Eliminate high costs of order reprocessing, shipping correction surcharges, and loss of customer loyalty: Validity checks provide validation from country to city, street, house number, and more.
  • Catch addresses that are suspiciously overused: A unique identifier is used to perform velocity calculations.
  • Reduce time cleansing address data: Address Risk API normalizes all global addresses.

Made possible by the proprietary
Ekata Identity Engine™

Sophisticated data science and machine learning, the Ekata Identity Engine combines two proprietary datasets, the Ekata Identity Graph and the Ekata Identity Network. These datasets are built around core identity attributes that are transformed into unique and valuable insights that allows businesses to accurately make risk decisions about their customers.
