Profit Threat Analytics

Legacy fraud systems don’t discover modern profit threats.

The mobile communications industry is entering a period of hyper-competitiveness, with new packages being introduced continually by marketing – often with capped or unlimited options. Everyone in marketing sees these packages as a way to increase market share. However, a cyber criminal analyzes every new package as an opportunity for a different type of attack, typically involving negative margin or arbitrage. And subscribers can either consciously abuse the network or unwittingly commit high-usage, resulting in bill shock.

Organized criminal arbitrage and negative margin threats are nearly always based on new techniques (often taking advantage of loopholes in newly offered packages), making them invisible to legacy, rules-based systems that focus on known, previous fraud threats. These new profit threats are distinctly different.


What’s wrong with legacy systems?

  • Legacy, rules-based approaches result in an attack not being discovered when the attack uses the product in a way it was not designed for.
  • Legacy, rules-based approaches use flat-world forensics which can’t detect crime rings and money flows.

Use Profit Threat Analytics to discover millions of dollars in profit threat attacks that would otherwise have gone unseen.
