Our Story

Arkose Labs’ innovative approach to fighting fraud was inspired by bringing together Kevin Gosschalk’s expertise in interactive machine vision technology with experience in video game development. The founder recognized the potential of applying dynamic, user-friendly puzzles in the authentication process and from this developed a comprehensive platform that combined sophisticated risk-based profiling with targeted challenges.

He quickly grew the team and established a business with global operations with bases in San Francisco, California, Brisbane, Australia, London, the UK, and Costa Rica. The company enjoys rapid momentum and has raised capital plus strategic investment from PayPal, M12 (Microsoft’s venture fund), USVP, SoftBank Vision Fund 2*, and Sony Innovation Fund. It is amassing a customer list featuring household brands and Fortune 100 companies.

Arkose Labs was ranked 195 on the prestigious Inc 5000 list and made to the list in both 2021 and 2022. We’ve been honored by G2, a customer review platform, as the number one bot management firm and consecutively ranked as a leader in enterprise fraud management. Fast Company tapped us as the Next Big Thing in Data and AI when it comes to spoiling fraudsters. And Deloitte ranked us on its Fast500 list as the 83rd fastest growing company in all of North America. Gartner said that we’re a Cool Vendor in IAM and Fraud, and CNBC recently named us on their list of the top 100 start-ups to watch.

“As a company, our goal is to eliminate fraud, not just mitigate it. We approach the problem by undermining the underlying financial incentives for fraudsters. It’s a different approach than our competitors, and it’s one we firmly believe in.”

Kevin Gosschalk, CEO
Arkose Labs
Kevin Gosschalk, CEO

The approach is based on the following core principles.

Undermine the economic incentive behind fraud by rendering attacks time-consuming, difficult and expensive.

Stop fraud long-term with adaptive defenses that continually move the goal posts for fraudsters.

Seamlessly combine risk-based authentication with targeted friction to stamp out fraud and abuse at scale.

Shift the attack surface by providing a buffer between fraudsters and the sites and apps they attack.

Stop Account Takeover Attacks at the Front Door

What is this webinar about?

1 in 5 attacks today is an ATO attempt, and why not? They’re lucrative. New research shows an attacker facing off against just a WAF can earn upwards of $119,376 with just five successful attempts. Fraudsters’ gain is your loss. In today’s macroeconomic environment, losses to attacks can no longer be considered a cost of doing business. The twin challenges you face – stop bad actors from getting into your systems and power (profitable) growth by creating a streamlined experience for your consumers – can be conquered. In fact a financial services firm that recently reduced ATOs by 75% also reduced customer service complaints about compromised accounts. As a result, it experienced more than $5M in savings.

In this webinar our panel will discuss:

  • How to stop ATO attacks.
  • Increasing attackers’ costs and efforts, causing them to move on to easier targets.
  • How a strategic defense against ATOs actually contributes to your firm’s growth.

5 Emerging Cybersecurity Threats: Prepare now for 2023

Cybersecurity is a game of cat-and-mouse in which organizations and attackers compete to outwit one another. But as 2023 approaches, effective bot mitigation and account security have never been more important because the stakes are so high. Data security and risk management are board-level issues, and CISOs must protect online revenue, reduce the risk of data breaches, and improve operational efficiency. In this webinar, we will look at Arkose Labs’ top cybersecurity trends and forecasts for 2023, including: Social media account takeovers, specifically targeting crypto scams Refund and Rewards fraud Denial of Inventory bots Cybercrime-as-a-Service (CaaS) solutions, including Phishing as a Service (PhaaS) An increase in ideological attacks targeting nontraditional ideological targets such as banks, fintechs, retailers, etc. Join us on December 15 to hear Kevin Gosschalk, the CEO of Arkose Labs, and Brett Johnson, the Chief Criminal Officer, talk about these predictions and how organizations can get ready to deal with these threats.
