The Phoenix Insurance Company, NTT DOCOMO Ventures and existing investors Genesis Partners and Entrée Capital also participated in the growth investment, which brings Riskified’s funding total to date to $31 million.

Commenting in a press release on Riskified’s year-over-year growth of 400 percent, Erez Shachar, managing partner at Qumra, said: “Riskified’s exponential growth is indicative of the eCommerce industry’s need for a fraud prevention platform that uncovers new revenue opportunities. Leveraging its experienced team, proven technology and unwavering focus on their global retail customers, we’re confident Riskified is positioned to build the world’s best fraud prevention solution.”

“Riskified continues to experience unprecedented growth within the online fraud prevention industry, showing immediate improvement to retailers’ bottom line and customer experience,” Eido Gal, cofounder and CEO of Riskified, stated in the release. “It’s a win-win for global retailers. They’re recouping millions in revenue from fraud loss, while gaining customers that would have otherwise been rejected. Not only do we approve 66 percent of orders retailers plan to decline, but we also guarantee every order we approve to provide assurance and peace of mind.”

“We founded Riskified with the retailer in mind,” Gal continued, “and have grown adept at servicing the needs global retailers have as they expand their eCommerce and mCommerce operations to provide more personalization to consumers. Our adoption rates continue to validate the incredible global demand for a flexible fraud prevention solution for enterprise brands. We look forward to expanding on our customer success and continuing our rapid pace in the future.”
