By leveraging ThreatMetrix’s deep insight into 1.4 billion anonymized digital identities, thirdstream will add yet another layer of fraud detection and prevention to its onboarding platform, cumulus.

ThreatMetrix was named Top Enterprise Technology Company at the 2018 LendIt Fintech Industry Awards.
