Understanding Geolocation & Device Identification

IP geolocation has become a de facto standard when it comes to transacting online, but that fact is the function of IP geolocation in fraud prevention has morphed over the past 5 years. Now merchants need to understand not only the role and potential of IP geolocation, but they also need to understand proxies, proxy detection, device identification and geo locating beyond the device.

In this training session these core technologies are discussed along with where they provide overlap and where they provide differentiation. The fundamental features, differences and similarities of each of these tools are discussed while describing how they work, who uses them and how to use their results. You will also learn how to discuss best practices with the use of each of these different technologies as well as how to explain and interpret the signals device identification, IP geolocation, proxy detection and mobile phone geo-locating can provide when used both individually and in combination.

This course was last updated in August, 2017 to include new information on mobile phone geolocating and device fingerprinting technologies, updated discussions on vendors offering these and IP geolocation services, and updated statistics on merchant use and planned use of each of these tools. Now offered in HTML5 and compatible with all mobile devices.
