  • Comprehensive licensed global news data, with an archive going back more than 30 years for some publishers, to improve visibility to relevant negative news
  • Extensive web-harvested news, blogs and social media to track potential reputational risks and identify emerging trends
  • Business and industry information including financial details, as well as corporate families data offering insights into beneficial ownership
  • Sanctions, watch lists, and PEPs for timely awareness into regulatory risks
  • Legal information ranging from court dockets to full-text global patents data

By tapping into the trusted data available from LexisNexis, you can conduct due diligence and continuous monitoring of key customers, business partners, vendors, suppliers and other third parties that your company relies on.

Conduct statistical modeling and trends analysis

  • Make fast, informed decisions during customer onboarding and maintain a comprehensive view of risk potential for existing customers. Leverage a risk API to check customers against high-level sanctions and PEPs data for a clear true / false answer, as well as additional detail on the person or company.
  • Identify changes on regulatory lists and negative news by key words related to existing customers, suppliers or other third parties. Using our DaaS, you can integrate licensed news, sanctions, PEPs and company profiles into your due diligence system to understand—and proactively manage—risk.

In addition, DaaS is ideal for data science applications, giving you a broader scope of relevant data to use when conducting analysis to uncover trends that could signal disruptive events or untapped opportunities. ­

How is LexisNexis Data as a Service delivered?

Depending on your needs, DaaS is available in a variety of different Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). This allows you to either:

DaaS features several options, allowing you to choose the solution that best aligns to your specific content needs, technical capabilities and risk mitigation workflow.
