Why choosing F8th?

F8th is the perfect 2020’s solution for web apps, e-commerce websites, and any other online platforms.

Security systems based on browser fingerprinting and persistent cookies aren't compliant to the new generation of global data privacy regulations and security laws.
Data privacy regulations are now a global trend and, despite being a hassle for companies, they aren’t going away anytime soon.

All regulations such as the e-Privacy, General Data Protection, and Brexit have the same flavor of privacy model and data management principles, as they are all based on the following factors:

Data Minimization: Data collected will be adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary to provide the service. In other words, data cannot be collected and recorded for the company’s interests only.

Purpose Limitation: Data collected will be used to run the service or to directly benefit the user. That means if companies want to collect browser fingerprints for security purposes, they will require the user’s consent. Moreover, they will need to explain the purpose of this data collection to the user. This makes any WAF or security systems completely inoperable.

Data Integrity: Data collected is accurate and reliable over the entire data lifecycle. For instance, browser fingerprints are dynamic and have to be constantly updated. By consequence, they will be visible and editable by the user in an easy and accessible way. Moreover, users will have the capacity to delete their account and take all their personal data with them.

Data Retention: Data should be kept no longer than is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. This means browser fingerprint recording for security reasons cannot be kept for a long period as they are not included in the purpose limitation, they cannot be kept for a long period. It is now critical to have a healthy data retention schedule included in the personal data lifecycle.

Persistent Cookies: When a user wants to erase a cookie, this is a deliberate action that will be respected. It is not a surprise that this has been widely condemned as it violates users’ privacy rights. GDPR and Cookie Law do not tolerate any use of persistent cookies (known as well under the name, Evercookie, Super Cookies, Cookie Forever or others) and will sanction any use severely.
Into a safe and progressive transition, with F8th, companies can easily become compliant without any risk of exposure.
With GDPR in place, operating below the radar of European authorities and escaping rules that apply to browser fingerprinting will be very difficult and "potentially" very expensive. To avoid severe penalties, browser fingerprinting companies are now legally required to have a plan in place to effectuate their transition from their outdated security systems into one that supports the new regulations.

By implementing and collaborating with F8th's solution, companies will have strong evidence of their transition plan, which allows them to be compliant with the new laws. Furthermore, it gives them time to gradually convert from their old security system to the new compliant one without reducing their security level.
Today’s scams and fraud detection systems are outdated and deprecated as they only use browser fingerprints and persistent cookies.
As digital banking demands lower both the requirements for account creation and the cost of banking, companies and banks are forced to rethink their scam and fraud detection solutions. Most security systems used today are based on past solutions that were developed quickly using browser fingerprints and persistent cookies.

As these systems are vulnerable, they can be easily hacked by fraudsters by simply changing a font, using remote connections or virtual private networks, simulating client requests, blocking all cookies or any other security breaches commonly known by fraudsters. The most advanced of these security systems use machines that learn to recognize patterns to uniquely identify customers. Their data sources, however, are all the same and are easy to manipulate as well as simulate.
Using an artificial neural network, F8th collects behavioral data from the human layer in order to create precise and distinct biometric identities.
F8th solidifies client fidelity and reduces frustrations by eliminating additional efforts to deal with security systems. No matter the geolocation, it allows clients to access their products and carry out their purchases without any concern. With increased purchases and use on the platform, the client’s biometric identity will become more detailed, which allows companies to recognize if the transaction has been effectuated by the same user, or by a fraudster who stole their credentials.

The strongest part of this extra authentication step is that each distinct biometric identity is generated off the customer’s subconscious interactions. Unlike a password, the biometric identity cannot be simplified and is virtually impossible to log, reconstruct or distribute. F8th collects extensive information, and yet no trace of the user’s identity can be found on their device.
A unique security system that provides an extra level of protection against the two most prominent fraud risks, which are "malware and phishing" and "account takeover".
In fact, according to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), the level of fraud incidence has increased slightly or significantly during the previous 12 months than it had two years prior. Nearly 50% of all small businesses fall victim to fraud at some point in their business lifecycle, costing them an average of $114,000 per occurrence.

Moreover, according to the Merchant Risk Council’s 2017 Global Fraud Survey, the average online store declined 2.6% of all incoming orders due to fear of fraud, including 3.1% of all orders worth over $100. This means that rejecting orders for a $25 million business is worth more than $600,000 annually.

Unfortunately, even if the best of these old security systems using machine learning can provide considerable protection against the "identity theft" scenario, they still have the same and distinct vulnerability. Unlike F8th security system, they cannot provide any protection against the new fraud trends, which are "malware and phishing", and "account takeover", also known as "stolen credentials".
Empowers companies with a powerful "Interactive Customer Support Service" and a collection of innovative management system tools.
With unprecedented precision, F8th is the first to allow companies to record and control user internet activities, interactively support customers and use analytic tools. See below the list of all our solutions.

Interactive Client Support Service
Access in real time the client’s behavioral data for supporting them remotely and interactively. It eases communication and increases client retention and satisfaction rate.

Network Traffic and Service Access Controller
Including the individual biometric identity, build your own biometric group identity and then manage your accesses, priorities, and limits based on these distinct or group identities.

Advanced Report and Analytic Tools
F8th has advanced autonomous tools that analyze the data or content using sophisticated techniques to discover deeper insights, make predictions, and generate recommendations. While the traditional analytical tools examine historical data, F8th focuses more on forecasting future events, behaviors, and predicting the effects of potential changes in business strategies.
