Fraud Prevention Whitepaper

Protecting Against Advances in Web Fraud

Fraudsters take extreme measures to hide their true identity, location, IP address and machine attributes to avoid getting caught. They use advanced techniques to mask these attributes while conducting fraudulent activities. They also regularly use phishing attacks to fool their victims – your legitimate customers and users – into exposing their account credentials.

The use of VPN servers to hide the network and location of fraudsters’ machines is a major headache for fraud analysts and security researchers. VPN routing lets fraudsters hide the origin of their network traffic, making it impossible for analysts to detect this fraud technique. The inability to detect phishing attacks makes it impossible to react until after a compromised account has been used.
