The Arkose Labs platform allows businesses to go beyond probabilistic risk assessments, in order to categorize traffic and remediate attacks based on true intent. Interactive technology roots out all automated threats and deters human-driven attacks in the long term. The unified Arkose Platform combines real-time risk assessments, targeted step-up challenges, and has a continuous feedback loop to protect against emerging fraud tactics.
Fraud and Abuse Prevention Platform
Arkose Labs believes that the only way to combat the online fraud epidemic long term is to actively undermine the economic incentive behind attacks.
The Arkose Labs platform is designed to break down the business model of fraud by sapping attackers’ time and resources until attacks become financially non-viable. Achieving this in a way that does not negatively affect good customers requires an intelligent mix of real-time risk decisioning with next-generation enforcement challenges.
How it Works
Arkose Labs determines true user intent by analyzing traffic for behavioral telltales of fraud and testing suspicious traffic using interactive challenges.
Real-time analytics classifies and triages traffic, and informs the platform of any secondary screening required. Malicious traffic is presented with 3D visual challenges which are rendered in real time, that are unsolvable by sophisticated machine vision technology.
This eliminates automated attacks, and forces human attackers to complete time-consuming challenges that make attacks financially non-viable. Good users rarely see any challenge, and if they do, they have a ~98% first- time pass rate.
Shifting the Attack Surface
Arkose Labs provides an intermediary platform to verify requests, acting as a buffer between fraudsters and the websites and apps they are so practiced in attacking.
When a user completes an action on a page protected by Arkose Labs, the platform analyzes this for suspicious telltales. Rather than blocking traffic outright, high-risk activity is tested through interactive technology. The nature of the challenges cause automated scripts to fail.
Malicious human-driven attacks are presented with increasingly complex challenges that waste their time until they abandon attacks. Only authentic traffic is passed on to the enterprise, relieving the burden on in-house teams.
Zero Tolerance Approach to Fraud and Abuse
No reverse proxies, third-party infrastructure, daily rule-setting or single point of failure.
The highest good user pass rate of any form of step-up, tested against MFA and traditional CAPTCHAs
New customers see results within days and are fully deployed within weeks
Arkose Detect is a dynamic risk engine that analyzes data from user sessions and their interactions with technology.
It unearths behavioral patterns across devices & networks in real-time for accurate behavioral analytics and anomaly detection. Arkose Detect profiles traffic and triages it based on the underlying intent of the user, which informs dynamic authentication challenges through Arkose Enforce.

Smarter step-up that increases good customer throughput.
Traditional step-up authentication solutions are failing to stop fraud attacks at scale, without killing businesses’ conversion rates. That’s why Arkose Labs takes a different approach to any other fraud provider on the market.
Through seamless integration with Arkose Detect, it preserves challenges for risky traffic only. Arkose Enforce generates 3D images in real-time which are tailored to the risk profile and cannot be bypassed by fraudsters at scale.
Most solutions place too much of an emphasis on blocking suspicious traffic, which leads to good customer friction or letting too many bad guys through. Arkose Labs acts as a major obstacle for fraudsters, but an open door for your customers.
We achieve this by taking a unique approach of not blocking any traffic, but rather triaging suspicious traffic to the Arkose Enforce challenge.
The challenges cannot be solved by bots and they become increasingly difficult for human fraudsters to solve. This saps their time and resources until they can no longer generate ROI from the attack.
Good users will rarely see challenges, but when they do, they are fun and easy to solve, using brand elements to accelerate completion rates further.
Eliminate Automated Attacks
Eliminate Automated Attacks
Arkose Labs is the only fraud vendor to offer a commercial SLA guarantee against bot attacks of any sophistication level as standard. Interactive technology tests the responses of a device behind the scenes, and presents authentication puzzles to suspected bots that cause them to fail.
Challenges are created using 3D visuals, with countless possible permutations. They are designed against the grain of machine vision software, so that they cannot be recognized and classified by machines. Context and logic are used, which is simple for humans but hard for bots to make sense of. A wide bench of challenges allows businesses to rotate puzzles when an automated attack is suspected.
All this means that it is impossible for fraudsters to launch a profitable automated attack on businesses that are protected by Arkose Labs.
Arkose Enforce - Challenge Types
All this means that it is impossible for fraudsters to launch a profitable automated attack on businesses that are protected. This ensures that a fraudster cannot launch and sustain a successful attack on a business protected by Arkose Labs.
