Block Carding Attacks
Prevent Credit Card and Gift Card Fraud
Payment frauds such as carding and gift card cracking are carried out using bots. Carders deploy bots on merchant’s checkout pages to verify and build complete cardholder datasets. ShieldSquare applies device fingerprinting, user behavior analysis, and machine learning models to avert carding fraud.
Impact of Carding on Your Business
Chargebacks and Loss of Brand Reputation
Accepting stolen-credit-cards lead to chargebacks and penalties. Excessive chargebacks result in termination of merchant’s account. Businesses struggle to prevent carding attacks because such attacks go unnoticed by conventional application security measures. Successful carding attacks negatively affect your merchant history as well.
Our bot mitigation solution combines multiple streams of data including mouse movements, keystrokes, and URL traversal patterns to spot non-human behavioral patterns. We help businesses in detecting massive distributed attacks on payment processing pages.
Ineffective Gift Card and Loyalty Programs
Hackers use brute force approaches to target coupons, vouchers, and gift cards. Fraudsters use botnets to crack tokens and siphon off reward points. Gift card fraud and online coupon abuse hurt brand loyalty.
Backed by an expert team of data scientists, our bot detection engine blocks bots from programmatically cracking gift cards and vouchers. We perform extensive behavioral analysis to abstract the user’s intent to differentiate bots from real users.
