When it comes to fraud, financial risk is just the beginning.

Though online fraud is one of the greatest threats to financial institutions, fraudsters have increasingly turned their attention to non-financial enterprises as well. After all, when businesses get attacked, the losses extend well beyond money. Assets are taken, information is stolen, reputations are damaged, and trust is lost.

Sensitive information and assets need to be secured at all times, from all places, on all devices—and availability ensured for legitimate users. With bad actors able to strike from anywhere in the world, virtual defenses need to be bulletproof. You can protect both your customer and your business 24x7 with comprehensive web fraud solutions, backed by the experts at the F5 Security Operations Center.

The right security, right when you need it.

Web fraud isn’t a static threat. Cybercriminals target a variety of industries, developing new ways to defeat existing defenses and defraud legitimate businesses (and their customers). We’re continually creating new strategies and solutions to help you stay ahead of evolving and ongoing campaigns. Our products and services were designed to be FFIEC-compliant and handle various types of risks, including OWASP 10 app threats, man-in-the-browser attacks, man-in-the-phone attacks, and bot automation.

Five key defenses for thwarting online attacks.

Malware detection

Identify both general attacks and specific threats, including zero-day fraud, malicious script injections, Remote Access Trojans (RATs), form loggers, password stealers, and more.


Application-level encryption protects information exchanged prior to SSL encryption, rendering stolen information useless. Form field obfuscation also hinders attackers and prevents them from seeing the kinds of information users input.

Early phishing detection

By recognizing spoofed domains during creation and testing, phishing attacks can be identified and stopped before they ever reach the user. Critical information about the attacker and referrer is collected and reported as well.

Automatic transfer detection

Each transaction is analyzed with iFrame checks, behavioral analysis, signature and function verification, and more to determine whether an action is genuinely user-initiated or the result of automatic transaction fraud.

Bot disruption

Distinguish and disrupt bots and botnets attempting to exploit business logic, manipulate inventory, or duplicate (scrape) intellectual property. Dynamic site morphing technology keeps enemies guessing and makes fraudulent transaction scripting prohibitively difficult.

Advanced protection in a mobile world.

Making applications mobile is often a requirement to meet customers’ needs. But as more people go mobile, more bad actors expand their attacks to mobile devices. Encrypting data both to and from mobile devices keeps information safe and further reduces the overall risk of a fraud attack. But that’s just the beginning. Mobile fraud solutions from F5 also:

  • Scan user devices for malware without affecting the customer experience.
  • Conduct behavioral analysis for transactions based on device history and location.
  • Thwart SMS grabbing techniques to prevent the interception of sensitive data.

Keep security where it belongs.

Applications need to remain secure, but not at the expense of user experience. F5 web fraud protection requires no action from customers— there’s nothing to download or install, there are no additional logins, and no interruptions to your existing user flow.

On the organization side, fraud protection can be deployed and managed independent of the application development team. The devs can focus on application updates and creating new features while the security team keeps things running smoothly. Everybody wins.

The benefits of an integrated solution.

Running multiple F5 solutions creates a closed-loop system, allowing for greater context, identifying anomalies more quickly, and streamlining how systems interact with one another.

For example, when browser-side alerts are triggered and sent to third parties, attackers can detect the discovery and shut down, or block those third parties altogether. By staying in-system, fraud alerts can be acted on before bad actors are even aware they’ve been identified.
