Keep accounts safe and customers happy.

Pi’s Account Shield uses a multi-layered approach to stop takeovers before they start, so your customers and revenue are better protected.


Why is ATO hard to solve?

Account takeover can happen on two fronts: organization’s data breaches or susceptible individual customers. Although organizations exercise caution and safeguard against data breaches, they have little to no control over ATO emerging from the customer’s side.

of U.S. adults have been victims of account takeovers, which amounts to over 24 million households.2

Moreover ATO is hard to detect, making it a preferred way for bad actors to attack.

Pi’s real-time, multi-dimensional approach to ATO

One-dimensional indicators don’t make the cut for today’s intricate ATO attacks. Pi combines multiple variables like identity information, IP address, transaction amount, time-based action, and longevity of the account to create a truly informed view of user activity. Any suspicious activity is met with real-time friction that’s customized to the behavior. Plus, we evaluate every action on our platform in milliseconds—immediately flagging and alerting you of any suspicious activity.
