Analyst Report on Risk-Based Authentication

AppGate Named a Strong Performer


Appgate is positioned as a “Strong Performer” in the Forrester Wave™ Q2 2020 Risk-Based Authentication report. Get access to the report here.

When discussing Appgate’s solution, Forrester notes: “The strongest feature of the solution is Risk Orchestrator, which gives admins true freedom in defining custom data management, risk scoring and authentication workflows.Administrative and business user management are robust, and statistical decisioning is more exposed to end-user admins than in competitive offerings. Authentication policies are granular and reporting and dashboards are visually pleasing and customizable.”

Appgate’s Risk Orchestrator allows integrated systems to coordinate and communicate seamlessly with one another, providing robust protection without hassle. You can detect anomalous behavior in real-time and automate workflows based on the risk associated with transactions and account activity. This ability is crucial to preventing and stopping fraud attacks.

In a soon-to-be-released survey fielded by ISMG, Faces of Fraud 2020, 46% of security professions said they are now concerned about the fact that fraudsters have too much valid customer information at their fingertips, so they can easily get around security controls, resulting in account takeover. This speaks to the importance of having a strong risk-based authentication solution in place.

Appgate believes a strong solution should incorporate factors outside of traditional authentication workflows and challenge the process without causing friction. Our Risk-Based Authentication solution is comprised of two elements:

  • DetectTA - enables organizations to detect anomalous transactions and stop them in real-time. It provides dynamic fraud detection combining behavioral analytics, and machine learning to stay ahead of ever-evolving fraud schemes.
  • DetectID - multi-factor authentication, which offers a wide variety of innovative authentication factors.

Risk Orchestrator ties everything together in an easy-to-use drag and drop console. It gives you the flexibility to customize authentication workflows using real-time threat intelligence. You can define high-risk behaviors and make decisions based on your risk tolerance.

Features include:

  • Agile fraud detection
  • Ease of integration
  • Drag and drop interface
  • Intuitive portal
