Adding security layers to your user acquisition forms or to your payment forms is the best way to ensure a safe user experience. But there are many different malicious attacks to prevent — identity theft, automated attacks, password database leaks, account takeovers, fraud…
With so many open fronts, it may seem difficult to safeguard your forms, but we’ve got you covered. We’ve come up with the ultimate security toolkit in order to tackle all these issues and offer the most secure experience to your users.
Verifying the identity of users before granting access to certain actions is key to prevent account takeovers (ATOs), fraud, identity theft, and many more.
ALiCE is a SaaS that verifies user identity to streamline your onboarding processes and that complies with know-your-client systems (KYC) and anti-money laundering (AML). It allows automatic verification by uploading selfies and government-issued documents.
Passbase allows you to combine different user authentication methods to build a user verification flow that totally meets your needs. You can choose from a wide variety of methods, such as facial recognition, ID verification, age verification, liveness detection, and much more.
In order to protect your users from identity theft and manage online authentication, you need a great identity provider solution. These are some of the most celebrated identity providers in the market.

Analyzing your flows to detect vulnerabilities is advisable to know when to implement additional security measures. Multi-factor verification is very effective in terms of security, but it can hurt the user experience. That is why we recommend applying it only when a risk is detected or to safeguard sensitive actions.
These companies can help you detect risk in order to implement additional security measures, like risk-based multi-factor verification.
IP scoring can be checked and used to determine if the source is suspicious or not. Among many other features, Opticks Security scans IP and offers a risk scoring from the user who is trying to access your site or execute an action. With the result of the IP risk, you can allow access or trigger additional authentication methods in order to safeguard the entrance.
IP Quality Score is another great tool to tackle many different types of fraud.

Did you know that more than half of internet traffic comes from automated sources, according to WebARX? Considering this huge number, it doesn’t come as a surprise that tackling automated attacks is one of the main concerns when it comes to online security.
Blocking access to bots, spam accounts or automated malicious actions can be tackled with tools that differentiate human behavior from bot behavior. These are just some of them.
reCaptcha is a free security service by Google. This identification method identifies bots and automated signup or login attempts by telling machines and humans apart. The system is similar to CAPTCHAs, with the difference that reCaptchas only require one click from the user.
hCaptcha is a type of CAPTCHA that is also meant to detect and block bots. In this case, a wider variety of methods are used to tell humans and bots apart. Depending on your business needs, you can implement easy questions, categorization, image detection, and more.
