Prevent Account Takeover (ATO)

An effective ATO prevention strategy decreases costs and increases revenue by stopping fraud without user friction.

Preventing ATO Is Critical to Your Business

ATO continues to be the most prevalent and expensive attack targeting financial institutions, e-commerce and many other organizations. According to Javelin Strategy and Research, in their 2021 Identity Fraud Study, ATO fraud resulted in over $6B in total losses in 2020. 

What’s the challenge? Consumers are demanding more digital services and convenience, so you must achieve the right balance between a frictionless customer experience and protection from ATO and other fraudulent schemes.
