AU10TIX, a global technology leader in identity verification and management, today announced that it has protected companies around the globe against over $18B in business fraud since the 2021 launch of its award-winning Serial Fraud Monitor (formerly INSTINCT). This solution, along with the company’s IDV (Identity Verification) Suite, has proven to protect organizations against even the most sophisticated identity fraud schemes. 

The impact of AU10TIX's multi-layered fraud prevention solutions is evident across multiple sectors, with significant savings realized in each industry. In the payments sector alone, AU10TIX's solutions have prevented over $13B in fraudulent transactions. Other impacted sectors include cryptocurrency and trading ($2.7B), banking (over $1B), and shared economy ($776M). Furthermore, in Q1 of 2024 alone, AU10TIX has already prevented over $1.3B in fraud. These figures underscore AU10TIX's commitment to combating fraud across industries and protecting businesses from financial loss. 

In 2023, AU10TIX prevented twice the fraud that it had in 2021. This period also witnessed a notable shift from traditional fraud to professional fraud orchestrated by organized crime groups utilizing AI. In 2021, the majority of attacks detected were traditional fraud attempts identified by the IDV suite, with synthetic AI-generated fraud accounting for only a third of the loss prevented. However, by 2023, a significant 70% of the fraud loss prevented was synthetic AI-generated fraud detected by the Serial Fraud Monitor. This shift underscores the evolving tactics of fraudsters towards more sophisticated methods but also highlights AU10TIX's advanced capabilities in detecting and mitigating both traditional and AI-generated fraud. 

Furthermore, AU10TIX observed significant shifts in fraud patterns across regions and document types, indicating evolving tactics among fraudsters. These include: 

  •  In 2021, cryptocurrency was the most targeted sector with a 36% share. This decreased to 7% and 11% in 2022 and 2023, respectively. 
  • The APAC region's share of crypto fraud increased from approximately 15% in 2021 to about 25% in 2023. 
  • Among the document types most exploited by fraudsters, fake driving licenses accounted for ~60% of attacks in 2021, but only ~30% in 2023. 
  • Fake passports were used in only 12% of attacks in 2021, but a full 27% in 2023. 

“The escalating threats of cybercrime and digital fraud necessitate stronger safeguards for customer identity and personal information," said Dan Yerushalmi, CEO of AU10TIX. “With today’s announcement, we reaffirm our unwavering commitment to assisting organizations in fortifying their defenses and ensuring secure and seamless access to digital transactions." 

AU10TIX’s IDV suite validates physical and digital ID documents of all types using built-in ID, age, and address verification, along with voice and video consent, face comparisons, and liveliness testing. The company’s Serial Fraud Monitor is the industry’s first and only solution that can detect coordinated mass ID fraud attacks. It uses advanced neural networks to monitor evolving fraud patterns, repetitions and conflicts in customer traffic while cross-checking ID data against a consortium of more than 60 major companies. With Serial Fraud Monitor, organizations can not only detect and halt fraudulent customers but also identify customers who consistently accrue positive scores over time, offering them enhanced service as trusted users. 

Today’s announcement comes on the heels of AU10TIX’s launch of Digital ID, which enables businesses to rapidly and accurately verify digital IDs of all types while maximizing security and preventing fraud.
