Prevent Account Takeover

Account takeover (ATO) occurs when unauthorized access is gained to a Web or mobile app end-user account – often due to stolen credentials, weak passwords, social engineering or bot-based attacks.

TeleSign helps customers provide end-users with an extra layer of security and continuous account protection, beyond just passwords, through two-factor authentication and behavioral biometrics.

ACCOUNT TAKEOVERS EXPECTED TO REACH $8.3 BILLION IN FRAUD LOSSES BY 2018*

ATO is not isolated to a single industry. It is a fraud type that can impact virtually all online and mobile app accounts. Fraudsters gain access through stolen or breached credentials, social engineering, phishing and brute force attacks.
ATO attacks result in

Once the attackers have taken over an account they typically change valid account information, transfer funds or goods, make unauthorized purchases from the account and ultimately steal personal information and credit card details. This impacts both the end-user and the account provider.
