In June 2021, Nethone raised $6.7m in a Series A funding round to focus on its Know Your Users mission.

Where Nethone Wins Over SEON

  • Its AI looks to handle the majority of transactions without input from your risk team, although you are able to look into any particular decision and have some level of flexibility with input from their team. 
  • The availability of connection graphs can help uncover more complex fraud schemes and provide a deeper understanding of where fraudsters are attacking.  

Where SEON Wins Over Nethone

  • Though Nethone offers a dedicated data scientist for its clients, custom rules have to be adjusted through this off-site data expert. With SEON, these rules are easily customizable, instantly.
  • Our data enrichment gives you more real-life context of a transaction by looking at your users’ social media presence (or lack thereof) and the risk scores are applied accordingly – not just at the signals captured during the user journey.
