Instances of #Fraud on the Rise, but are Matched by Robust Industry Responses; How FICO (NYSE: $FICO), Mobiquity Technologies (OTCQB: $MOBQ), NICE (NASDAQ: $NICE) and ACI (NASDAQ: $ACIW) are Providing Solutions - #Fraudetection


New York, NY and Delta, BC - February 5, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com, a leading investor news resource covering technology stocks releases a snapshot looking at fraud detection and management solutions.
Research from Mordor Intelligence indicates that the global Fraud Detection and Prevention (FDP) Market will grow as high $29.07 billion USD by 2023. Another study, from Markets and Markets, puts the number even higher, projecting a value of $63.5 billion by 2023. Both cite online transactions, including cyber fraud, and payments fraud as key drivers for growth in the space.
Payments fraud resulting from payment cards losses, totaled $24.26 billion in the last year according to recent data. Analytical software firm FICO (NYSE:FICO) utilizes artificial intelligence in its Falcon Fraud Platform to analyze and protect payment card transactions. Alexandre Graff, Vice President of FICO in Latin America explained:
"Falcon is an artificial intelligence solution based on dozens of machine learning patents that excel at detecting transactional fraud. Falcon models are based on the largest data fraud consortium in the world, the Falcon Intelligence Network. Conductor will also offer omnichannel communication based on FICO Customer Communication Services, which further reduces false positives and takes user experience to a higher level. For example, when the system identifies abnormal behavior, it communicates directly with the user's preferred communication channel to confirm whether it is fraud or not."
Another sore spot is ad fraud, which was projected to have cost $19 billion last year - or 9 percent of total digital advertiser spending - and will total $44 billion by 2022, according to a survey from Juniper Research. Recently, Mobiquity Technologies, Inc. (OTC:MOBQ) responded to this with the release of its transparent ad fraud reporting system, AdCop, through its Advangelists platform.
According to a recent press release"AdCop monitors for programmatic fraud post bid impression. If AdCop suspects fraud, the Advangelists platform renders a blank page instead of an advertiser's advertisement as a brand safety measure. In addition, the platform's comprehensive reporting provides advertisers and publishers full transparency and details around the fraud detected."
Advangelists CEO Deep Katyal explained that the company is currently giving away the beta program of AdCop for free.
"We believe so strongly in our product, that today, I'm excited to announce our free AdCop beta program," said Katyal. "Participating beta partners can monitor their ad campaign impression level fraud for free; they do not need to be a Client of Advangelists or purchase media through our platform."
Another firm addressing fraud detection and management via artificial intelligence is NICE, Ltd. (NasdaqGS:NICE), whose NICE Actimize division recently announced the IFM-X, its "next-generation Integrated Fraud Management (IFM) platform that leverages automation and machine learning to optimize effectiveness while reducing the total cost of implementing and operating an enterprise fraud risk management system". NICE Actimize CEO, Craig Costigan said:
"Rapidly changing demands in the fraud marketplace led NICE Actimize to develop the new IFM-X platform in response to our customers' challenging requirements," Costigan said. "This new platform unleashes the power of our market-leading fraud expertise coupled with expert-led machine learning technology to enable superior protection against constantly evolving and malicious fraud attacks."
ACI Worldwide, Inc. (NasdaqGS:ACIW) actually integrates fraud detection directly in their UP eCommerce Payments Solution. The award-winning cloud-based platform boasts sophisticated real-time fraud detection capabilities and prevents fraud while maintaining conversion rates. The seamless integration allows merchants to continue providing quality customer experiences while the fraud filter works in the background.
So, while data indicates that payment fraud is growing and ad fraud statistics are getting increasingly bleak, there is simultaneously a vigorous response coming from the FDP space. Katyal emphasizes the role of transparency in the space;
"Fraud hurts everyone in the industry. We believe programmatic media should be fully transparent, from cost transparency through to fully understanding the nature of fraudulent activity within your advertising partners."

Investorideas.com - #CyberSecurity and #Security for 2019: VirtualArmour (CSE: $VAI.C) (OTCQB: $VTLR), Patriot One (TSX-V: $PAT.V) (OTC: $PTOTF), Check Point (NASDAQ: $CHKP), FireEye (NASDAQ: $FEYE)

Investorideas.com - #CyberSecurity and #Security for 2019: VirtualArmour (CSE: $VAI.C) (OTCQB: $VTLR), Patriot One (TSX-V: $PAT.V) (OTC: $PTOTF), Check Point (NASDAQ: $CHKP), FireEye (NASDAQ: $FEYE)



#CyberSecurity and #Security for 2019: VirtualArmour (CSE: $VAI.C) (OTCQB: $VTLR), Patriot One (TSX-V: $PAT.V) (OTC: $PTOTF), Check Point (NASDAQ: $CHKP), FireEye (NASDAQ: $FEYE)


Point Roberts, WA and Delta, BC - January 16, 2019 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Cyber stocks news alert - Investorideas.com, a leading investor news resource covering defense and security stocks and its defense portal, Homelanddefensestocks.com, release a snapshot looking at the recent surge in demand for cyber security technology following the numerous breaches and hacks of 2018.
Google, Facebook, British Airways, T-Mobile, Uber and Marriott all suffered from very public cyber security breaches in 2018 due to preventable lapses in security which ended up exposing personal data from hundreds of millions of individuals to unauthorized users. How will this affect cybersecurity for 2019?
According to Cybersecurity Ventures' recent quarterly report, global cybersecurity spending is predicted to exceed $1 trillion cumulatively from 2018 to 2021. In 2004, the global cybersecurity market was worth $3.5 billion while in 2019, spending is expected to hit $120 billion.
"Last year's major data security breaches could have been prevented with a properly implemented cybersecurity strategy and proactive management," according to Andrew Douthwaite, Chief Technology Officer at VirtualArmour International  (OTCQB:VTLR) (CSE:VAI), a fast-growing cybersecurity managed services provider based in Denver, Colorado.
Leading the growth of VirtualArmour over the last decade, Douthwaite knows a few things about cybersecurity, and his company's track record shows it. "While there were plenty of attempts, none of our enterprise clients were breached utilizing our services in 2018 - or ever, for that matter, since they became a client - and for good reason," said Douthwaite. "We are the best at what we do."
VirtualArmour services a wide range of clients, which include Fortune 500 companies and several industry sectors in over 30 countries across five continents. Its customized solutions help businesses build, monitor, maintain and secure their networks, and it maintains 24/7 client monitoring with specialist teams located at its U.S. and UK-based security operation centers.
"While the big breaches in 2018 are behind us, companies should brace for more sophisticated and devastating attacks in the new year," said Douthwaite. "Cybercrime remains a seriously strong threat, and every business manager should be taking steps to ensure that their company does not become a successful target."
To keep pace with the rising sophistication of cyber threats, FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ:FEYEannounced adding new features to the FireEye Email Security - Server Edition.
The new capabilities include Multi-Vector Virtual Execution (MVX) engine, which can use image-set passwords in emails to analyze the related password-protected files — a feature which most sandbox detection are unable to analyze.
FireEye's MalwareGuard, which was launched recently, is also among the new additions to the FireEye Email Security - Server Edition.
The key intent behind the new upgrades is the growing incidences of executive impersonation attacks, which do not contain any malware but significantly jeopardize business emails. This is becoming a concern because people tend to access and respond to such emails because they look official and legitimate.
Online security may be paramount but there is also the need for real world security coupling such as with Patriot One Technologies Inc. (TSX-V:PAT) (OTC:PTOTF), developer of the award-winning PATSCAN™ covert radar weapons detection system, who recently closed its acquisition of EhEye Inc., which is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Patriot One and its video recognition software rebranded as PATSCAN VRS.
This unique system automates the detection of weapons, disturbances and suspicious behaviors through existing camera infrastructure. Using computer vision techniques coupled with machine learning for artifact recognition, the solution employs deep learning architecture to alert security teams to anomalies that a standard video system cannot identify.
Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), a leading provider of cyber security solutions globally, also announced a recent acquisition, ForceNock Security Ltd.
ForceNock developed a Web Application and API Protection technology which utilizes machine learning, behavioral and reputation-based security engines which Check Point plans to integrate into its Infinity total protection architecture.
Andrew Douthwaite, delved more into these simple solutions and other major 2018 breaches in a recent article published on LinkedIn.com here, with his conclusion being simple and obvious.
"You should have a robust cybersecurity strategy and preventative operating procedures in place, be constantly monitoring all of your network - looking for incidents such as unauthorized access, and make sure that your employees receive comprehensive and up to date cybersecurity training."
