Protect Your Customers and Business Against Account Takeover Fraud

Business Challenge

Account takeover (ATO) fraud leverages speed and sophistication to profit from exposed credentials


Data Breaches are Rapidly Fueling Fraud

Data breaches have exposed usernames and passwords, serving as the fuel for account takeover fraud. Relying on weak authentication mechanisms puts financial institutions and users at risk


ATO Fraud is Evolving in Speed and Sophistication

Financial institutions face a wide variety of attacks that lead to account takeover. Without the ability to accurately detect fraud in real time, it becomes impossible to keep up with the rapidly evolving threat landscape


People Remain the Weakest Security Link

The natural tendency to trust is central to successful social engineering attacks. For example, phishing scams continue to trick users into giving up personal data used for account takeover

The Solution

Use a multi-layered security approach to mitigate account takeover fraud


Leverage Out-of-band Security

Independent authentication channels help prevent man-in-the-middle attacks that lead to account fraud


Implement MFA

Better protect users and account data with a range of multi factor authentication (MFA) options


Detect Jailbroken Devices

Detect and manage vulnerable devices to protect users and transactions


Mitigate Malware With Integrated Mobile Security

Implement mobile app security to defend against keyloggers, Trojans, and other malware


Replace Weak Passwords with Biometrics

Modernize the authentication experience with user-friendly biometrics


Gain an Edge With Machine Learning

Mitigate known and emerging fraud as it occurs with machine learning-based risk analytics

Leverage Out-of-band Security

Increase fraud protection with independent authentication channels

Man-in-the-middle (MitM) attacks are a technique fraudsters use to intercept login credentials or modify transaction details, without the legitimate user noticing. To mitigate this, our solution supports secure out-of-band authentication options like user-friendly SMS and push – as well as patented visual cryptogram technology for authenticating transactions.

Implement Multi factor Authentication

Leverage sophisticated authentication technology to protect users and accounts

Gaining unauthorized access to an account becomes much more difficult when the authentication process includes multi factor authentication (MFA). OneSpan offers a range of MFA options such as biometrics, SMS, and push notifications.

In addition, using adaptive authentication to dynamically adjust the authentication method to each unique transaction creates additional barriers for fraudsters, while simplifying the user experience.

Detect Jailbroken Devices

Detect and manage vulnerable devices

Financial institutions have no control over their users’ devices, and therefore, no control over the environment in which their mobile apps operate. Jailbroken or rooted devices, for example, are at a greater risk of being compromised due to removal of important application download restrictions.

Our solution identifies this vulnerability and applies appropriate security measures to dramatically reduce risk. 

Mitigate Malware with Integrated Mobile Security

Enable mobile apps to better defend against malware

Mobile banking malware continues to evolve and propagate faster each year, exposing personal data that can be used for account takeover fraud. Mobile application shielding gives apps the power to defend against malware, even on infected devices. 

App shielding with runtime protection defends against keyloggers, banking Trojans, and other threats – providing proven protection while driving the best customer experience. 

Replace Weak Passwords With Biometrics

Improve security and the customer experience with user-friendly biometrics

Deploy better alternatives to weak and clunky passwords with biometric options, including fingerprint, facial recognition, and advanced behavioral biometrics, to improve the user experience and increase fraud protection. Simple and convenient, biometric authentication is supported by mobile operating systems, such as iOS and Android, and widely preferred by consumers. 


Gain an Edge with Machine Learning

Mitigate known and emerging fraud

Fraud is rapidly evolving in complexity, speed, and automation. To keep up, the market is turning to real-time fraud detection based on machine learning. Machine learning can analyze vast amounts of transaction data in real time and alert administrators of suspicious transactions that could indicate account takeover. 

Machine learning algorithms identify patterns across vast and disparate data. This makes them significantly better than humans at detecting new and emerging fraud.
