PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - Jun 22, 2012) - iovation, the Device Reputation Authority™ protecting online businesses from fraud and abuse, today announced that it made the Portland Business Journal's Fastest Growing Private 100 Companies Award list for the second straight year. The award is a ranking of the fastest growing privately held Portland, Oregon area companies and is based on revenue growth over the past three years.
"This award further validates what we've witnessed internally at iovation -- the increased need for a solution that evaluates risky online transactions based on device association with fraudulent activities," said Jon Karl, Vice President of Corporate Development at iovation. "We are delighted to make the Portland Business Journal's list for the second straight year and we are confident we'll continue our strong growth trajectory as we expand into new markets and industries."
In 2011, iovation stopped 50 million fraud attempts, expanded European operations, opened an additional data center, and grew its engineering staff by almost 30 percent to address its growth in customers. The company attributes its business expansion to the success of its ReputationManager 360 solution. Today, ReputationManager 360 analyzes the behavior of about 950 million devices like mobile phones, tablets and computers, and determines whether or not the consumer behind a device would be likely to conduct a fraudulent transaction. In 2011, the number of devices ReputationManager 360 tracked jumped about 32 percent from 600 million to 800 million.
