In some embodiments, a method includes receiving, from a client compute device and at a server, a request to access a resource. The request can include an identifier associated with the client compute device. The method can further include accessing risk information associated with the client compute device from an instance of a distributed database at the server using the identifier. The risk information is provided to the distributed database by a set of compute devices. Each compute device from the set of compute devices implements a different instance of the distributed database. The risk information can be analyzed to identify an access decision and a level of access to the resource can be granted to the client compute device based on the access decision.
