Pricing details are encrypted using AShield Quantum Resistant Crypto Encryption eliminating scrapping fraud.
Account Take Overs (ATO)
ATOs are advanced attacks that are used to gain access of the platform in an illegitimate way.
Two Factor Authentication mechanisms, such as the use of One-time Passwords (OTP) and Passwords have also been compromised in terms of security since they can be intercepted by exploitation of SS7 signaling protocol vulnerabilities and passwords are available on hackers place.AShield adaptive security will validate the incoming request even before serving the page.Crypto enforcement challenges create an environment of high security that is bot-resistant.
New account fraud
Automated bot programs creating fake accounts leading to platform abuse, increase operational cost and infrastructure misuse.AShield advanced AI/ML will validate every request before serving the page.AShield provides bot proof crypto enforcement challenge ensuring only legitimate new accounts are created.
HTML based button elements are easily read and triggered by automated programs.Hackers gain access to e-commerce platforms and stop users from availing products by continuously blocking inventory.AShield performs pre-validation on the incoming request using advanced AI/ML algorithms before serving the requested page, ensuring only genuine users access the platform.

Fraudsters attempt to obtain sensitive information related to a genuine user by faking a trustworthy entity.AShield combines Adaptive Security and a unique 2-Factor Authentication mechanism renders Phishing attacks ineffective.
Current methods that are used to authenticate and facilitate transactions are PIN and OTPs.SMS based OTP's are intercepted by exploiting the vulnerabilities in signaling protocol and malware in the device makes PIN ineffective leading to fraudulent transactions.AShield OTP eliminates vulnerabilities by carrying out run-time mobile number verification. The OTP is verified using our proprietary Defense-Grade Crypto Image solution and run-time ML-based fraud detection using Zero Trust Protocol provides a one-of-a-kind verification process to secure your financial transactions.
Fraudulent MVAS Activation
Advanced attacks such as APT, I-Frame Masking, Malware are used to carry out fraudulent activations without user consent, leading to high customer complaints, loss of customers, reduction in MVAS revenue and high regulatory fines.AShield uses a combination of advanced AI/ML techniques and quantum-resistant enforcement challenges at run time, which ensures all existing and future fraudulent attempts are ineffective.
