Fraud attacks continue to be a persistent problem for financial institutions. Together, Appgate’s Digital Threat Protection and Risk Based Authentication provide a layered protection strategy across the multi-step fraud lifecycle.
Protection Throughout the Fraud Lifecycle
Phase 1: Planning and Targeting
Fraudsters target users through phishing, social media, rogue mobile apps and more. Digital Threat Protection proactively detects and removes these attempts to harvest valuable credentials. Preventing fraud early in the lifecycle minimizes the impact to your customers.
Phase 2: Setup & Launch
How do most attackers harvest information? Users inadvertently click on a link or download something malicious onto their device. You cannot control your consumers’ device, but with Digital Threat Protection and Risk Based Authentication you can obtain device posture visibility to manage device risk prior and take the appropriate course of remediation.
Phase 3: Cashing Out
Once fraudsters have successfully collected credentials, or any sensitive information, they can access a user’s account to steal money. Risk Based Authentication uses behavioral analytics and strong authentication to stop an attack before reaching the final stage of the fraud lifecycle.

- Frictionless authentication using threat intelligence.
