Traditional analysis techniques catch only a handful of fraud scenarios because sophisticated criminals often elude these methods through collaboration.

    Using graph databases, investigators are able to perform link analysis to uncover a variety of behavioral patterns, which enables them to catch fraud rings and individual fraudsters in real time.

Whether you're identifying a potential dating match or mapping the suspicious behaviors of a fraud ring, the uses and applications of graph databases are endless. Graphs are ideal for today's next-generation applications because they efficiently store both data and its relationships – something other databases simply can't do.
