Intelligence Tool

Our lightweight solution for enriching data. 

Scans open-source databases and gathers extra information about users based on an Email address, Phone number or IP address. You can also simply check if an email address is valid or not and instantly get background information to create a complete user profile, flag fraudsters, confirm suspicions or remove doubts.

 

The primary function of the Intelligence tool and its APIs is data enrichment. You can learn more about how and why you should consider using such a service for your business here

 

APIs / Modules

The Intelligence Tool has 4 main modules / APIs, detailed below:

  • Email Module / API
    The Email API generates a risk score associated with a single email address based on deep social media profiling and domain verification tools. Fake email addresses can quickly be filtered with the help of the Email API. This provides raw data output as the Email Module of the Intelligence Tool.
  • Email Verification Module / API
    Using a fast SMTP-MX check, this module tells you whether or not an email address is valid or not. Beyond the basic deliverability check it also returns information on the email's domain, such as if it's free / disposable. In the case of custom domains, it checks whether or not there is a registered website, the creation date and if the top level domain is suspicious or not.
  • Phone Module / API
    Our Phone API combines numerous data sources to provide an in-depth phone number investigation tool. It aggregates open and reachable social, messenger data to flag fraudsters based on a phone address only.
  • IP Module / API
    The IP API generates a risk score associated to a single IP address. The elements that are being analyzed depict a clear picture of whether the user is trying to mask their connection. This provides raw data output as the IP Module of the Intelligence Tool.
