The risk service provides operations to configure and retrieve risk evaluations from internal and external risk providers based on a specified risk policy.

Risk Policies

A risk policy is determined by the customer’s specific configuration settings as well as intelligence gathered from common use cases, which are then used in event evaluation to calculate risk scores for received events. For more information about risk policies, see Risk Policies.

Risk Evaluations

Risk evaluations calculate the risk level associated with a received event using the environment’s settings and data provided in the event. For more information about risk evaluation, see Risk Evaluations.

Risk Predictors

Risk predictors are employed by risk policies, and define thresholds for certain criteria (such as, IP Velocity or User Velocity) to determine whether there’s the potential for fraudulent user behavior. For more information see Risk Predictors.
