Bulk IP address risk scoring is a powerful tool to help reduce unauthorized access and fraud. It allows you to identify risky IP addresses, and take actions such as requiring 2FA or denying access based on the score. This helps protect your business from various types of fraud, including bot traffic, bonus abuse, chargebacks, and multi-accounting.
The IP quality score indicates how likely a particular connection is to be used by spammers, bots, or other malicious actors. It is based on an aggregated view of all the activity from the IP over time and includes other data points such as a proxy status, if it has been associated with dangerous domains, if there is known malware, and other information that can be used to assess the threat level.
Risk Intelligence Unleashed: The Essentials of Bulk IP Address Risk Scoring
A high score indicates a higher risk and should be taken into account when assessing transactions. However, it is important to remember that this is only a snapshot of an IP and it is very common for users to use a variety of devices over a period of time. Therefore, a high score does not necessarily mean that the user is a bad actor.
A newer way of evaluating an IP is to look at how it has performed in the past, and what kinds of transactions it is associated with. A high fraud score indicates that the user may have engaged in a range of fraudulent behavior. A low fraud score is a good sign that the user is more trustworthy and is less likely to engage in suspicious activity.
