Boise-based Kount, Inc. a leading provider of fraud prevention technology, announced that the United State Patent and Trademark Office has granted the company its fourth patent issued this year. Patent number 8,296,245, involves online methods used to validate user identification, a critical component to help verify legitimate transactions and thwart fraud.
“Cyber criminals are very persistent, always developing new ways to steal from online businesses and consumers.” said Steve Rouse, COO, Kount. “We continuously develop new and advanced techniques to detect and prevent fraud, knowing that user activities can either create or destroy value for the business owner. Developing the best technology and solutions to protect our customers is our responsibility, which is why we take our portfolio of patented, fraud-fighting technology so seriously.”
Patent number 8,296,245, “Method And System For Creation And Verification Of Anonymous Digital Credentials” contains 20 claims involving concepts to verify the users of one or more sites and provide anonymous digital credentials to verify a user’s reputation.
As retail e-commerce continues to experience a double-digit growth rate, Internet businesses will increasingly need more safeguards and innovation, including methods detailed in Kount’s recent patent, to operate online with minimal risk.
