Fortifying a Powerhouse Executive Team

Throughout 2023 and early 2024, Sift achieved major milestones, including adding several industry veterans to its executive team including:

Driving Customer-focused Innovation

Sift recently announced a milestone of 40 patents granted or allowed by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), showcasing continuous innovation, differentiation, and dedication to developing the innovative technologies that prevent fraud and unlock customer growth.

In 2023, the company made substantial investments in its core machine learning and AI technology to detect fraudulent behaviors and patterns; its popular Workflows capability, which allows fraud and risk teams to automate and manage their business fraud logic within the Sift console, and stream-line review; and WatchTower, an internal capability which detects anomalies in customer traffic and fraud decision patterns.

Unlocking Fraud Industry Benchmarks

In late 2023, the company launched the Fraud Industry Benchmarking Resource (FIBR), a first of its kind online tool that allows anyone to access key fraud metrics across industries, geographies, and time. With FIBR, fraud and risk professionals can benchmark their business's payment fraud attack rates, fraudulent chargeback rates, and manual review rates against aggregated industry averages over time. These insights can be used to inform risk decisioning goals and analyze how various fraud trends impact different industries.

Brandishing Industry Recognition

Sift earned several industry accolades in 2023 and early 2024, including:

  • Recognition as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Digital Fraud Management, Q3 2023 by Forrester Research. The company was the only privately held Leader named in the report.
