By rooting out fraud early, companies are able to strengthen relationships with customers by offering an increasingly secure financial platform without sacrificing a positive user experience.

The Arkose Labs Fraud Deterrence Platform

The Arkose Labs platform empowers security and fraud teams to root out large-scale, persistent attacks, with real-time risk classifications of traffic, powered by multi-faceted machine learning and 24/7 analysis from a Security Operations Center.

Unlike black box solutions, our “clear box” approach focuses on delivering actionable insights with clear explanations for risk classifications and a clear path to remediation. This goes beyond solutions that provide probabilistic risk scores, which often require a great deal of resource time to integrate, fine tune, and define downstream authentication workflows`. Our unique combination of risk classification and dynamic attack response delivers the appropriate pressure to the attack signature, while keeping disruption to legitimate users to a minimum.
