"With SEON, I can see that the address has been around since 2012 because it appeared in data breaches. I can see it’s been registered on these 15 other social websites. From then I can just manually match the relevant information to make my case. Working with more accurate data allows me and my team to move faster – and with minimum user friction. Whereas the team had to wait hours or days to verify someone’s payment, SEON allows them to do it in 30 mins or less."

"As soon as our staff used SEON on a regular basis, they could see its value. It immediately started saving them time as they didn’t have to trawl through the usual checkpoints. So much so, that the time spent by Air France analysts on manual reviews is down by an impressive 70%. Instead, all the information they needed was on one screen with a simple scoring system enabling them to see if a transaction was real or not."

"The most useful thing for us was to be able to see if the email and phone numbers weren’t registered anywhere. We also rely on the device fingerprinting metadata in our scorecard to filter out junk users. We immediately saved about 6% of costs on our automated KYC checks. After only 2 months, we started seeing impressive results. Up to 3 times fewer cases of defaulting customers in new regions such as Romania and Europe. 4 months later, the fraud rates dropped by over 65%."

"We were looking at another provider, but they came back to us with a 4-6 months integration window. With SEON, it was literally a phone call, sandbox tests on Monday and by the end of the week, it was done. One other thing I’d like to comment on is the pricing model. It’s really 2022, like for scaling together. The SEON model, it’s now one we actively look for with our other partners. Clearly an organization that approaches work and its customers in a different way."

"I tested some extra rules, and over a few months I managed to push SEON’s auto approval from an initial accuracy of 95% unto 99.5%. Taking the time to update your SEON rules is an investment that gives great results. And the best thing is that we can do so without deploying any software. From an engineering perspective, it is extremely time and resource saving, allowing us to react much faster."

"I couldn’t believe how fast the results came,” says Gergely. “Our chargeback rates dropped by 91% in one month only.” Moreover, the number of manual queries and fraud catch rates continued to improve after the initial 30 days as the system adjusted itself – part of the benefits of deploying a machine-learning algorithm to fine-tune accuracy."

"We deployed SEON both on our website and web app to gather device data as well as IP and email information. It was unbelievably fast, both in terms of integration and results. In 4 days only, our fraud rates were pretty much down to 0."

"We overlay SEON’s digital and social lookup with device fingerprinting to get a good indication of whether the phone or tablet belongs to the actual client. We can instantly filter out obvious fraudsters with no digital or social presence, and we get better intelligence to automate our decision making."

IP Lookup

Blocking users based on their IP address may be the oldest trick in the book but it’s also ineffective, as it leads to too many false positives. What’s much more valuable is gathering information about someone’s connection based on their IP. This is what we call an IP lookup.

The IP lookup process is a data enrichment process that lets you gather information about VPN or proxy usage, Tor connections, data center usage, and ISP as well as geolocation data. You can get remarkably precise location information, and even visualize it with our Google Maps widget.

The key is to get more information to use as part of your automated or manual risk scoring. You can decide if a VPN or Tor user is risky, or ignore certain parameters, and build models based on geolocation for your KYC and AML processes, iGaming bonus abuse, chargeback prevention, and much more.
