Imperva ThreatRadar Fraud Prevention
Stop Fraud Malware and Account Takeover Quickly and Easily



Fraud costs organizations hundreds of millions of dollars in lost revenue, chargeback fees, and customer turnover. Fraudsters continually refine their tactics, developing new fraud schemes and writing malware code that can evade end point detection. To mitigate fraud, businesses today must purchase and deploy multiple fraud security solutions that can combat threats like Man-in-the-Browser attacks and account takeover. Unfortunately, many of these fraud security solutions require organizations to recode their Web applications. Plus, these solutions cannot work with one another to share information and maximize accuracy.

ThreatRadar Fraud Prevention, an add-on service for the Imperva SecureSphere Web Application Firewall, enables organizations to rapidly provision and manage fraud security without changing Web applications. By integrating with leading fraud security solutions, the SecureSphere WAF can transparently identify and stop fraudulent transactions. ThreatRadar Fraud Prevention also provides powerful monitoring and enforcement capabilities, allowing businesses to centrally manage fraud policies from the SecureSphere Web user interface.

ThreatRadar Fraud Prevention integrates with:

  • ThreatMetrix TrustDefender ID
  • Trusteer Pinpoint
  • Iovation ReputationManager 360

With ThreatRadar Fraud Prevention, organizations can avoid the brand damage and remediation costs associated with online fraud. Coupled with SecureSphere's in-built protection against site scraping, brute force and bad bots, ThreatRadar Fraud Prevention offers a complete solution to stop online fraud.
