AppGate recognized as a Representative Vendor in the May 2020 Gartner Market Guide for Online Fraud Detection

Miami, FL – May 22, 2020 – AppGate, the secure access provider, today announced it has been recognized as a Representative Vendor in the Gartner Market Guide for Online Fraud Detection1. AppGate was named in the OFD: Device Assessment, Endpoint Malware Detection, Behavior Analytics and Behavioral Biometric category.

The report states, “The use of vendor solutions for online fraud detection is evolving beyond the traditional use cases of preventing account takeover and assessing the integrity of a payment transaction, as the range of digital brand/customer interactions increases.”

Preventing Online Fraud with a Multi-Layered Approach

Attacks are becoming more advanced and multi-faceted; organizations need a multi-layered approach to combat them. Attackers use multiple strategies to infiltrate accounts and networks so a single point solution, or siloed solutions, aren’t effective. AppGate recommends that organizations that want to improve their risk posture should consider the following: combine transaction monitoring and multi-factor authentication; add context and logging information gathered from devices; and, apply an orchestrating layer that enables these elements to communicate and share information. This approach greatly improves your posture and helps you make faster, better informed decisions.
