According to the 2015 AFP Payments Fraud and Control Survey, 62% of companies are at the risk of payment fraud. Only in United States credit card fraud is $3.8 Billion and ACH fraud is $1.2 Billion. The more alarming problem is that fraud is growing rapidly. In some cases fraud is increasing 250% YoY. 

The reason for this increase in fraud is because of the fact that the current rule based fraud protection technologies are in-capable of protecting against new kind of fraud threats. More and more transactions are moving from in-person transactions to online transactions. Committing online fraud and getting around the rule based fraud protection is easy for fraudsters. That's why fraud is also moving from retail to online domain. That is why we are seeing the fraud industry prospering in the new online world.

We have built DeepShield to help financial institutions and merchants protect themselves against payment fraud. We like to think of DeepShield as the anti-virus product for the payment industry.

With our core competency in machine learning, specifically in deep learning, we are building self-defending fraud protection solutions for payments that will adapt to new ways of fraud as they happen.
