Account takeover prevention


How Kount protects accounts

We know how valuable customer relationships are — and how important it is to protect them. Our technology works quickly and accurately to keep accounts safe.

Account status protected

 Identity details are collected.

User and device attributes are gathered. Data elements can range from device type and IP address to user location and biometrics. 


 Login attempt is accepted or challenged.

Within milliseconds, our technology accepts, blocks, or challenges the login attempt. Challenging a login attempt means requiring additional verification steps such as multi-factor authentication (MFA).


Account activity is monitored. 

Once the user gains access to the account, further actions are monitored for suspicious behaviour — such as changing the payment information or delivery address. 


Your accounts are protected.

You no longer have to worry about harmful events like data breaches and credential stuffing attacks — our technology has you covered.
