QUT honors Kevin Gosschalk for building a cybersecurity company disrupting bot management and online fraud detection markets

San Mateo, Calif. and Brisbane, Australia (November 2, 2022) – Arkose Labs, the global leader in bot management and account security, today announced Queensland University of Technology (QUT) recognized its founder and CEO Kevin Gosschalk as a QUT 2022 Outstanding Young Alumnus.

The award celebrates individuals who have built successful companies that are operating on the global stage. Gosschalk graduated QUT in 2010 with a Bachelor of Games and Interactive Entertainment degree. 

Gosschalk said: “This is a tremendous honor – an achievement only earned by having a clear vision and through strong collaboration between our employees and customers. As an alum, I’m humbled and grateful to be recognized by QUT.”

He went on to use the learnings from the Games and Interactive Entertainment program to create a distinct cybersecurity platform that stops the most prevalent and difficult types of attack vectors enterprises battle every day, including – credential stuffing, account takeovers, and fake new account sign-ups, etc..

“These types of cyberattacks are a big problem and disrupt every aspect of consumers’ lives – work, home, play,” Gosschalk said. “Just about one in four login attempts on a B2C company’s website is an account takeover attempt. Traditional products that have been on the market for years have limited effect today against modern fraudsters. I saw an opportunity to disrupt this market, and haven’t looked back.”

The biggest companies in the world select Arkose Labs because of the efficacy of its technology.

Accountability is in our DNA at Arkose Labs, so much so that we’re the only company to offer a $1 Million Credential Stuffing Warranty.”
