What is an account takeover fraud solution?

An account takeover fraud solution protects businesses and customer accounts from suspicious activity. The solution identifies when a user is exhibiting abnormal or potentially fraudulent behavior. Once the solution detects abnormal behavior, it can block it entirely or challenge it with multi-factor authentication (MFA) via email or SMS.

As part of Kount’s Identify digital fraud solutions, an ATO fraud protection solution can give you the insights and agility to interact securely with visitors signing in to your digital platforms. Identify solutions give businesses a 360-degree view of their customers by fusing digital and physical identity attributes and constructing an accurate profile of web or mobile app visitors.

How an account takeover fraud solution works

Let’s say a user attempts to log in to an account with a series of usernames or passwords (i.e., credential stuffing) from an unknown mobile device. An account takeover solution combines machine learning and device intelligence technology to recognize that the user is trying to breach the customer account.

As a result, the solution challenges or blocks the account takeover attack to protect stored customer data. On the reverse, customers who exhibit normal login behavior from trusted devices get a frictionless experience. Kount’s solutions even prevented over $1.8 million in account takeover losses for one enterprise-level retailer, according to the latest Forrester Total Economic Impact report.

Automate account takeover protection

Digital fraud solutions eliminate manual reviews

Prevent fraud across the entire customer journey, from account creation and login to loyalty redemption and checkout. A digital fraud prevention solution delivers accurate identity trust or risk assessments and automates transaction decisions. Businesses that automate decisions can reduce — or eliminate — manual reviews, accept more good orders, and stop fraud losses.

Automate chargeback protection

Chargebacks solutions intercept and deflect disputes

Chargeback protection solutions give businesses access to tools that notify them when customers initiate disputes. Knowing when customers initiate disputes means businesses can intercept chargebacks and deflect them automatically. Save time on the chargeback process, refund purchases or stop shipments quickly, and prevent inventory loss.
