Account takeover detection
Account Takeover is currently one of the most widespread threats businesses face. It is almost impossible to control the way users treat their credentials.
Moreover, even the most security-conscious ones can have their data stolen through a data breach, malware, phishing, social engineering attack and others. And it doesn’t matter what channel your client uses: both online and mobile are at risk.
Kaspersky Fraud Prevention helps you learn more about your clients, providing you with valuable data and knowledge allowing you to see the anomalies and suspicious behavior inherent to Account Takeover before fraud has even been committed.
Fraud is evolving and nowadays it looks more like organized crime with international and cross-functional teams involved.
It means that criminals take advantage of cooperation and communication to find the weakest spots in security systems of businesses and attack them. Kaspersky Fraud Prevention applies combination of years of experience in dealing with real fraud cases and the cutting-edge technologies to have more than just data.
We provide you with the knowledge of what is happening, how fraudsters behave, which schemes they use and how to catch them when it’s not the activity, but the signs of fraudulent intentions.
Money laundering detection
Money laundering is a serious problem for governments all over the world. As well as impacting national security, it helps fund organized crime (drugs, terrorism, etc.), weakens economies by facilitating corruption, and increases social divisions as a result
of tax evasion.
Money laundering conducted through the online services and mobile apps of unsuspecting financial organizations can affect a country’s economic and political stability, ruin its reputation and even put lives at risk.
For many money laundering and tax evasion scenarios, groups of organizations are victims and money is transferred between them to make detection even more difficult.
