How it Works

Provide an address for any customer interaction and receive critical metadata and signals to help identify whether the address is high or low risk.

Network Signals

Five signals derived from the Ekata Identity Network that provide insight into how a provided address is being used online (e.g. how often it is used, the number of businesses it has been used at, how often it has been used with other identity elements, and the first and last time the address was used.)


Latitude and longitude data points for calculating distances from other reference points.

Normalized Addresses

Consistently formatted addresses for your models and rules-based systems.

Unique Identifier

Unique identifier (UUID) that can be used to perform velocity calculations.

Address Risk API Solves For

Address Validation and Risk Assessment

Fight fraudsters by performing velocity checks to identify any repeated patterns of usage or address tumbling to help you detect policy abuse and fraud.

Identify Low Risk Geographic Zones

Use geocoordinates to calculate distances from other reference points as part of your risk analysis and establish geographic risk “zones” to streamline checkouts.

Key Benefits

Eliminate High Costs

Avoid costs from order reprocessing, shipping correction surcharges, and loss of customer loyalty using validity checks.

Normalize All Global Addresses

Use consistently formatted addresses in models and rules-based systems so you don’t have to do the work of data cleansing, parsing, and normalizing.

Catch Suspiciously Overused Addresses

Leverage unique identifiers (UUIDs) to perform velocity calculations and eliminate address tumbling.

Prevent Use of a Fake or Bad Address

Understand how the address has been used in other transactions online using unique risk signals from Ekata’s Identity Network.
