Fraud Prevention

Reduce identity fraud and account takeover

  • Eliminate brute force and credential stuffing with strong passwordless authentication like passkeys.

  • Block bot traffic with built-in protection and 3rd-party risk identification integrations. 

  • Reduce fraud with risk-based MFA and step-up authentication.

The perils of broken authentication

Exploiting sessions and credentials are two of the main ways that attackers get access to victim accounts. Breaking authentication can let attackers steal sensitive data, escalate privileged access, and weaponize accounts to cause further damage.

Learn about common identity attacks

Brute force

Brute force attacks attempt to guess passwords by trying every possible combination.

Credential stuffing

Credential stuffing attacks use already leaked passwords on login pages of unrelated services.

Account takeover

ATO is a form of identity theft where attackers compromise accounts using stolen credentials.

MFA bypass

MFA bypass attacks exploit gaps in weak MFA to bypass authentication.

Session hijacking

In session hijacking, attackers impersonate a legitimate user after stealing their session ID.

Password spraying

Attackers try easily guessable passwords against a large number of usernames.
