How we work

Sift Science is the most comprehensive platform of fraud and abuse prevention products leveraging real-time and machine learning technologies.

Sift Science technology works similarly to how Google uses machine learning to fight spam. Gmail users flag spam-y emails and Google learns what traits are associated with those spam-y emails. Google uses this information to automatically detect and filter emails that exhibit spam-like qualities. This results in less spam reaching inboxes of Gmail users.

While Gmail users flag spam, Sift Science customers quickly integrate our intuitive desktop and mobile APIs and so we can ingest their data points to identify fraud. Apps and websites worldwide send data about their online community interactions in real time using Sift Science’s REST APIs, JavaScript snippet, and mobile SDK. Then, fraud analysts can flag fraudulent or abusive users or transactions for the Sift Science system to analyze.

Sift Science analyzes company data and fraud/abuse flags instantly, connecting thousands of seemingly unconnected clues to identify fraud and abuse. We are the only fraud prevention platform that learns from user actions on a site right when they happen.

On their console, customers see scores generated from this data that predict how risky a potential user is. Scores can be applied to payment fraud, account, content/marketplace, ATO and promo abuse.

Customers can then decide how to follow up with users of different scores. Analysts can use the Sift Science console to investigate fraud associated with risky scores or create smart workflows to automate responses to users of different scores.

Sift Science customers save time and money by preventing fraud, creating operational efficiencies, and reducing the need for manual review. At the same time, these businesses also reduce friction, increase conversion rates, and grow revenue by using Sift Science to identify legitimate, trusted users and optimizing their experience.
