NS8 is a comprehensive fraud prevention platform that combines behavioral analytics, real-time scoring, and global monitoring to help merchants of all sizes optimize order processing and minimize risk. Built on the Protect API, this app integrates directly into NS8’s platform and allows merchants to begin fighting fraud within minutes.
Our unique scoring algorithm tracks and analyzes over 170 user attributes and combines them into a single, actionable score, which allows you to easily assess fraud risk at a glance and automate your review process.
Rather than waiting until checkout to determine a risk score, our scoring engine continuously updates its analysis as each user interacts with your site. Evaluate all users, not just customers who make a purchase.
Go beyond static data points to analyze behavior and pre-session data, which includes how users arrive at your site and their behavior once they get there. Our algorithm continuously adapts to new behavior patterns so you can better assess fraud risk.
Use SMS, email and other verification steps as well as third-party integrations to verify suspicious orders. The level of impact on the user can be customized and is adjustable based on the score each user is given.
With over 70 criteria to choose from, you can automate order processing workflows using customizable rulesets. The combinations are nearly endless and allow you to create personalized defenses that are as dynamic as they are unique.
Ad campaign optimization
Use advanced analytics to identify bad traffic generated by fraud and detect its source. Determine which advertising campaigns are bringing in high-quality traffic and adjust any campaigns that are not attracting real prospects.
Live performance monitoring
Know when and where customers are experiencing site issues by monitoring responses from servers around the globe. Set custom alerts to keep your team informed of problems and prevent the loss of customers due to unexpected downtime.
With optional, per-use add-ons, you can take advantage of supplemental data and scoring provided by our industry-leading data partners. Extensions are available exclusively to customers using the full edition of our platform.
Score users in real time
NS8 analyzes all visitors and transactions in real time, providing a single score that assesses the fraud risk posed by each user. The score is an actionable data point that can be incorporated into a variety of customizable workflows. If a user’s score is suspiciously low, you can investigate their order before a chargeback occurs.
Automate your workflow
NS8’s automated tools allow merchants to escalate order investigation and request additional verification for suspicious orders. Create custom thresholds to designate user risk and reduce the labor involved in manual review and shipping lead times.
Extend your defenses
For even more protection, the full edition of NS8 also gives you access to a growing library of third-party extensions that offer additional tools at your disposal. These extensions work seamlessly with NS8 to provide you a single solution for fraud defenses.
