The company has revealed plans to use the additional financing to continue its global expansion in context-based security and fraud prevention. Specifically, the financing will enable ThreatMetrix to do the following:
• Broaden the reach of The Network, which currently analyzes more than 500 million transactions each month and protects over 160 million active user accounts across 2,500 customers and 10,000 websites;
• Build new capabilities in the TrustDefender Cybercrime Protection Platform;

• Expand into new markets, including enterprise security, healthcare, gaming and insurance;
• Continue its expansion in European and Asian markets in addition to continued growth in North America.
