FRAUD DETECTION AT KOUNT
How fraud is detected and prevented
The key to fraud prevention is data — collecting data, evaluating fraud patterns, and using data to drive decisions. You choose how much decisioning is automated, and the technology does the rest.
An interaction is detected.
A user initiates an interaction with your business such as creating an account, entering payment information, or logging into an existing account.
Data is collected.
The technology collects data about the user, such as personal information, device ID, and location.
A risk score is calculated.
The technology analyzes the data in real time, compares it to billions of data points across a global network, and assigns the interaction a risk score.
Policies are consulted.
The technology evaluates data collected from the user against your business policies and risk thresholds.
The interaction is accepted, blocked, or challenged.
Within milliseconds, the technology makes a decision and automatically accepts, blocks, or challenges the interaction — without negatively impacting the user experience for good customers.—
Fraudulent activities are prevented.
The technology stops fraud — debit and credit card fraud, account takeover attacks, bot activity, and more.

Our technology has won countless awards and recognitions. We are regularly named the industry’s best solution provider by independent analysts. And our satisfied customers are eager to share their praises.

WHAT MAKES KOUNT SPECIAL
Added value achieves better results
Why choose Kount for fraud detection and prevention? Here’s what sets us apart.
No matter the types of fraud — from common concerns like payment card fraud to complex issues like account takeover — Kount has you covered with an end-to-end strategy. And it's all available in an easy-to-access platform.
Kount was one of the first fraud management companies to enter the market. That means we have 15 years worth of data — a decade more than other service providers. A longer history means Kount has the best understanding of risk.
Kount gives you the most accurate risk assessments possible with better fraud prevention and fewer false positives. Plus, you get full access to decision data analytics, so you have complete transparency on what is happening and why.
Some fraud tools claim to incorporate supervised machine learning — the most basic capability — into their platform. But Kount utilizes both supervised and unsupervised learning. By combining multiple machine learning models, Kount has greater insights which lead to the most accurate decisions.
Kount is a best-in-class technology platform that can reduce time-consuming, labor-intensive, error-prone processes. But automation doesn’t blindly dictate how your business should be run. You have full control over how decisions are made and the level of risk you are willing to accept.
The Kount team is made up of professionals with dozens of years’ experience. We know what it takes to stop criminals from committing fraud. And we will readily share those insights with you. Our goal is to help clients continuously improve results by fine tuning their strategy as threats evolve over time.
