Real-time fraud detection for today's digital needs 

Use wire-speed network data to better identify and protect against malicious traffic.

Financial transaction, digital advertising and identity verification fraud are constantly evolving and becoming more sophisticated every minute of the day. 

MantisNet's solution is a real-time monitoring service that organizations can leverage to identify and terminate fraudulent digital activity by inspecting all clients that are requesting access to, or initiating transactions within your digital applications.

The service leverages end-point data related to each client, as well as wire-data generated by the client's actions to determine if the client is indeed authorized, or if it has malicious intent.

How real-time fraud detection and authentication works

For any transaction involving client and host interactions MantisNet's solution provides authentication of the client, or more specifically the application being used by the client. The solution generates and processes over 300 unique characteristics of the client application requesting/processing each transaction in order to:

  • validate transaction legitimacy by including 300+ feature characteristics to determine if the transaction is sourced from legitimate humans and authorized users or if it is sourced from bots or other sophisticated invalid traffic (SIVT) types
  • feed this data to existing workflows for processing or
  • invoke traffic management capabilities to filter, redirect, shunt or terminate
  • based on validity filter traffic to completion, terminate or redirect for fraud analysis collection

The process is powered by MantisNet's Programmable Packet Engine (PPE) and unique solution code to monitor the real-time interactions between clients and hosts of transactions. The process can scale to millions of events, while continuing to interrogate the 300+ characteristics of each individual client, and improving decisioning through the inclusion of additional data enrichment sources (DNS, IP reputation, geolocation to name a few) to provide real-time detection and authentication of the transaction.


MantisNet reduces the risk of fraud to your operations by:

  • Providing enhanced visibility and authentication of client endpoints to enable analytics to discern Sophisticated Invalid Traffic (SIVT) from valid transactions in order to differentiate between legitimate and counterfeit, compromised or otherwise invalid clients and transactions.
  • Monitoring and securing transactions with deeper authentication and validation for customer service, ecommerce, payment processing, and point of sale applications.
  • Differentiating malicious ad traffic from legitimate impressions and clicks by providing new forms of high-resolution visibility into client endpoints and client/server interactions - saving money on payments to malicious affiliates and ad resellers

Any organization that relies on secure and authenticated transactions (digital advertising, retail, ecommerce, banking, financial services, energy, infrastructure, education, government and healthcare) can realize the benefits of MantisNet real-time stream-based fraud intelligence.
