Kount against e-gift card fraud:

Did you know that eGift cards have the highest fraud attempt rates because purchases made with eGift cards are difficult to track. Most businesses lack adequate systems that prevent fraud. eGift card fraud can impact your business and result in chargebacks, operational costs, and dollar losses from stolen goods and services, as well as denting to your brand reputation.

eGift cards are able to be fraudulently obtained in many ways. Credit cards can be stolen, accounts can be compromised, and legitimate customers can get pulled into unsuspecting fraud schemes. Kount identifies all high-risk devices, or high-volume activity from a small number of devices, indicates the relationship between email reputation, age, and history, as well as physical identity attributes, combines supervised and unsupervised machine learning to generate a score that indicates risk or unusual activity and can be built around desired business outcomes, such as special event promotions and tracking shipping details. 

What is cybersecurity?

Simply put, cybersecurity is protection against threats in computer systems and networks that aim to steal sensitive data or damage hardware. In an ever-changing digital world, cybersecurity is at the heart of every business and at the front of everybody's mind. Cybersecurity threats arise every day and companies and people have to continuously adapt to overcome these dangers and not fall victim to the threats.
