The Traction Five: Cybersecurity – eCommerce Fraud Prevention

Neal Silverman

With eCommerce accounting for almost 20% of global retail sales, the risk of fraud associated with online payment methods has risen significantly, with an estimated $20B in global losses in 2021 due to fraudulent activity. Thus, it is paramount that companies with an eCommerce presence invest in robust fraud prevention software.  Cybersecurity startups have made major advancements in this area, utilizing innovative technologies like machine learning, global data networks, and identity management to thwart fraudulent efforts.

At the core of what we do is help our clients accelerate digital transformation projects and their corporate development, whether that’s through our SaaS application or research services that evaluate what we call “enterprise-ready” emerging technologies. Discovering technologies that solve our clients’ most challenging needs, we come across many early-stage companies that surprise and delight us. Here are a few who have developed game-changing technologies in the area of eCommerce Fraud Prevention that we think are worth sharing and keeping an eye on:
