Use Cases


Takeover Fraud

Account takeover (ATO) fraud continues to be one of the most challenging fraud types affecting all online businesses. Because it targets real user accounts, ATO is less likely to raise the suspicions of available security solutions. Simility’s state-of-the-art AI-based user profiling system can help you nail this down—all via a simple integration with its intuitive SDK and APIs.

Simility’s advanced fraud-detection technology provides proactive protection against account takeover damage.

  • Compute session, device, and behavioral biometrics of the user
  • Build profiles for normal user login behavior using proprietary rules and machine-learning algorithms
  • Assign a fraud score and a decision based on every login attempt with existing behavior profile
  • Find related accounts and events, and act upon entire fraud networks using intuitive workbench and customized decisions
  • Enrich machine-learning models used for profiling, with the manual decisions

New Account Fraud

Data hacks, security breaches, and outright theft have made personally identifiable information (PII) for millions of customers potentially available to identity thieves. Vast numbers of compromised PIIs along with new EMV-chip-enabled cards have led to the dramatic growth of new account fraud. This not only affects the individuals whose identities are stolen, but also the businesses who suffer losses in money, future business, and consumer goodwill.

Simility uses a multi-layered approach that detects fake IDs used during account registration.

  • Identify fraud patterns using various device and session-related indicators, such as time spent across pages, keyboard patterns, etc.
  • Use data from third-party sources to validate the credibility of user-provided information such as name, social security number, or date of birth
  • Use location match techniques to find fraudster’s actual location
  • Velocity rules flag any abnormal behavior, alerting
    customers to halt or step up the scrutiny process
  • Intuitive link analysis flags the network of suspicious entities

Wire Fraud

Wire transfers are the fastest way to move funds to another business, person, or recipient for immediate access, making such transfers an especially attractive target for criminals. Fraud through wire transfers is fairly simple, considering all that’s needed is an account number and bank routing number. Wire fraud costs organizations money, but perhaps even worse, it can lead to eroding brand reputation and diminished customer loyalty.

Simility’s behavioral and transaction-based fraud-prevention technology provides financial institutions with dual capabilities to identify anomalous wire transfers.

With Simility, financial institutions can stay ahead of the fraudsters, stopping suspicious account activity in real time.

  • Evaluate all wire transfers based on various device, session, and behavioral parameters to identify those not consistent with previously identified patterns
  • Score various event information—payment, password change, account profile change, and payee details
  • Establish supervised machine-learning and anomaly detection models to baseline good and bad transactions
  • Flexible and tailored reviews for suspicious wire transfers
  • Track down entire networks of bad actors via an intuitive workbench that finds related accounts and payment events

Key Benefits for Your Business

Spot and stop potential wire transfer thefts before they happen

Greater clarity about the users and their transactions

Enhanced customer experience with faster available funds and fewer authentication steps

Increased efficiency in fraud detection
