SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Arkose Labs, the platform that bankrupts the business model of fraudsters, today announced that Arkose Labs Founder and CEO Kevin Gosschalk has been named a winner in the third-annual SC Media Reboot Leadership Awards, earning the distinction in the Innovators category.
Gosschalk is recognized for his innovative approach to fraud and abuse prevention. Gosschalk is the first individual in the security industry to use interactive gamification technology to fight fraud. Arkose Labs is also the first, and only, cybersecurity vendor to guarantee the efficacy of its technology with an SLA on its primary function: preventing all automated fraud and abuse from achieving scale and/or return on investment. Arkose Labs helps some of the world’s most targeted businesses solve online fraud problems costing millions each year in financial losses with its innovative global telemetry, user behavioral risk assessment and patent-pending enforcement challenges. In the last 12 months, Arkose Labs prevented more than $100M in would-be fraud and serves companies in the online marketplaces, travel, banking, social media and online gaming sectors.
“The fraud landscape is rapidly evolving, and companies around the world are in a digital arms race against cybercriminals who have unprecedented access to sophisticated technology and tools to commit fraud. In a market saturated with fraud prevention technology solutions, it’s an honor to be recognized for our leadership and innovation,” said Kevin Gosschalk, CEO of Arkose Labs. “Our technology is disrupting the fraud prevention space because we successfully break the economics of a cyberattack, making it too expensive for fraudsters to breach an attack surface, therefore eliminating any payoff. As the fraud landscape continues to evolve, Arkose Labs is well-positioned to emerge as the clear choice for any enterprise with a public-facing web application.”
