PerimeterX Account Defender™
Prevent account fraud by stopping account takeover and fake account creation
PerimeterX Account Defender is a cloud-native online fraud detection solution that detects and prevents takeover of existing customer accounts, creation of new accounts using fake identities and account abuse.
Account Defender detects illegitimate user behavior post-login, catching fraud before it happens. The solution continuously evaluates users’ post-login activities and uses behavioral signals to generate an evolving risk score. By applying continuous authentication, Account Defender identifies account abuse throughout the user journey on your website or app. The solution goes beyond the question, “Do you have the right credentials?” to address the questions, “Are you who you say you are?” and “Are you doing what you should be doing?”
Account Defender gave us real-time detection with context-aware actions that provide immediate visibility into previously unknown account takeover attacks enabling us to significantly reduce fraud and help desk calls.
Continuously evaluates users’ post-login activities and uses behavioral signals to generate an evolving risk score.
Applies continuous authentication to monitor account abuse throughout users’ journey on your site, not just at login or transaction completion.
Moves beyond payment specific “decline/authorize” to enable interventions that work with an organization’s business flow.
Works in tandem with existing CIAM systems, SIEMs and ticketing systems to strengthen end user experience.
The PerimeterX research team conducts proactive research into new threats to protect against fraudulent account registration, new account abuse and account takeover attacks. This research is used to continuously improve Account Defender detection and to provide actionable investigation capabilities for your fraud team.
The PerimeterX Security Operations Center and customer service team are available via multiple channels to help you investigate security incidents. They provide actionable insights and function as an extension of your team.
The PerimeterX Platform is a set of cloud-native infrastructure and services that powers an award-winning suite of comprehensive account protection solutions. These solutions prevent the theft, validation and fraudulent use of consumers’ identity and account information on websites and mobile apps. In addition to Account Defender, the Platform also powers PerimeterX Bot Defender which stops automated bot attacks, PerimeterX Code Defender which protects your website from client-side supply chain attacks and PerimeterX Credential Intelligence which prevents real-world credential stuffing attacks.
The Sensor and Enforcer send signals that are profiled and detected for anomalies in user behavior from past actions, pattern matching, statistical baselines and device forensics.
The solution enables interventions such as hard blocks, serving a human challenge or redirecting to a different page that works with an organization’s business flow or CIAM.
The Portal features advanced tools to investigate attacks and the ability to create custom reports.
