BOISE, Idaho, Nov. 9, 2020 – Kount, the leader in fraud prevention and digital identity verification solutions, today announced Event-Based Bot Detection, the newest solution in Kount’s Identity Trust Platform. Kount’s offerings protect the end-to-end customer journey from fraud, and the new bot detection solution is the latest in the company’s momentous year of new products, patents, partnerships, industry recognition, and more.
Event-Based Bot Detection advances beyond network- and device-based solutions, such as content delivery networks (CDNs) and web application firewalls (WAFs), which protect IT infrastructure against many malicious bots. Kount’s new solution delivers comprehensive and event-specific protection for all events across the digital customer journey, including at account creation, login, coupon or loyalty point redemption, and payment. It can quickly identify good and malicious bots, provide the ability to analyze and classify questionable bots, and enable customized responses with the power to adapt policies within minutes based on the bot’s behavior and the desired business outcome.
The new solution continues Kount’s unparalleled product advancements, which include 39 issued patents and another 9 pending patents.
This year, Kount introduced 7 new products and solutions including:
- Identity Trust Global Network
