Emailage, the global leader in online fraud prevention and email risk assessment, announces ambitious 2019 business goals to capitalise on existing momentum. Due to growing customer demand across more than 50 countries, the company has committed to expanding staff, with an emphasis on sales roles across a range of sectors, positions and locations around the world.

Emailage’s expansion comes on the heels of sustained growth efforts within the European and Asian Pacific markets. The increase in customer interest in Emailage offerings highlights that companies of all types around the world view digital identity and fraud prevention as a top concern.

Chris Thomas, GM of EMEA for Emailage, said, “It’s exciting to be growing our European team. We’re seeking the region’s top sales talent to focus on financial services and payments in DACH, France and Spain. We’re confident that we’ll find it. Our company and technology are very unique and there’s lots of buzz about using the email address to redefine how we approach digital identity.”

In 2018, Emailage was responsible for analysing 164 billion global transaction data points—a 91% increase over the previous year—preventing an estimated $2.7 billion of fraud in over 150 countries. The company also on-boarded 202 new customers, with 95% of existing customers surveyed stating that they would recommend Emailage to another company.

The company’s overarching strategic goal is to further expand its Global Identity Intelligence Network, which tracks fraud events associated with over 200 data elements to generate a real-time predictive risk score. The network already features five of the top ten global retailers; three of the top five global airlines; and four of the top six credit card issuers.

“One of last year’s highlights was being named on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies. For 2019, expanding our sales footprint is top priority. We’re dedicated to maximising growth and value,” said Emailage CRO, Tom Miller. “And that means investing in resources to find new customers while keeping ahead of any fluctuation in global online fraud patterns and regulations.”
