Verisk Insurance Solutions Taps iovation's Device Intelligence to Fight Policy and Claims Fraud

Verisk Insurance Solutions announced the launch of the Verisk Device Reputation Service(TM), a tool to help insurers prevent fraud by exposing the reputation of Internet-enabled devices. The tool uses proprietary iovation technology to help identify devices linked to previous fraudulent activities across a variety of industries, including insurance, finance, retail, gaming, and telecommunications. By using iovation's database of more than 2.5 billion Internet devices and the relationships between them, insurers can better determine the level of risk associated with online insurance transactions. Verisk Insurance Solutions is a Verisk Analytics business. The Verisk Device Reputation Service examines the hardware used to conduct an insurance transaction, such as a quote or claim report, through the Web or a mobile app. For example, an insurer can learn whether a particular PC, laptop, mobile phone, or tablet is connected to accounts or other devices with known histories of fraud. The resulting device reputation score can help insurers determine policy pricing and applicant integrity. The service can better detect fraud at the point of initial quote, potentially before any risk is incurred. For example, insurers can verify instantly whether the device used to request a policy quote has ever committed fraud or abuse or if it's connected to a device that has been associated with any type of fraudulent activity - anywhere in the world. It also checks for any device anomalies, attributes, and activity levels that may be risky from an underwriter's perspective.
