Capital from the round will be used to further the expansion of its products and increase its customer reach, the articles said.
SentiLink helps card issuers and lenders to detect and block synthetic identities where the name, date of birth and SSN, among other details, do not match a single real person. The real-time API and risk analysts can identify fake people and other connected fraudulent activity.
The platform takes input information around a user and generates a score between 0 and 1,000 on how likely the application is synthetic fraud or similar malicious player.
Earlier in the year, Andreessen Horowitz deployed $2.6m into independent network security platform Netography. The company helps security and network teams by leveraging a wide breadth of real-time data produced by network devices to automatically detect and block malicious activity.
The private equity firm also recently participated in the $250m Series E funding round of unified analytics platform Databricks. The company uses data and analytics to help cybersecurity teams identify potential threats and improve incident responses.
