SOLUTION BRIEF

Arkose Labs for Financial Services and Fintech

Arkose Labs Bankrupts the Business of Fraud

As long as there is profit to be made, fraudsters will continue to attack. Arkose Labs bankrupts the business of fraud by sabotaging attackers’ ROI and making it uneconomical to attack companies in our network. This is a fundamental shift from fraud prevention to fraud deterrence.

Global finance companies trust Arkose Labs to detect and deter attacks at user authentication touchpoints where account takeovers, payment fraud, credential stuffing, and fake account creation attacks originate. 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.
