SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/27/13 -- 41st Parameter, the
leader in securing online relationships, today announced it has been
selected by Cars.com, the award winning destination for car buyers,
as its new primary fraud protection provider to help support the
company's growing demands in an evolving market. 41st Parameter will
empower Cars.com to enhance its approach to protecting its clients
and advertisers, including car dealers, automotive manufacturers and
affiliates from fraud.
Cars.com has long recognized the importance of fraud prevention to
its business, its customers and its partners. When the company
decided to reevaluate its approach to fraud prevention it had very
clear requirements. It wanted a partner that was able to meet the
needs of its expanding product set and growing ad volume, helping to
further protect the Cars.com brand without impacting the user
experience of the site. Cars.com also wanted to expand security for
its growing base of mobile clients. Plus, the company wanted a system
that was easy to understand and manage.
"Providing our clients and advertisers with the best user experience
has always been our top priority," said Josh Chapman, vice president
of operations, Cars.com. "We are also dedicated to combating fraud
and ensuring the utmost security for our site visitors and customers.
Partnering with 41st Parameter gives us an even greater ability to
alleviate the risk of fraud with their proven and stable solution
while preserving the site experience. We've also been able to deploy
and manage the 41st solution independently and effectively. The move
to 41st has been a welcome and positive addition for our business."
"Cars.com is a marquee brand, and we value the opportunity to help
protect that brand and its customers from fraud," said Ori Eisen,
founder and chief innovation officer of 41st Parameter.
