“In three days, we could see a huge reduction of fraudulent transaction attempts — from 100,000 to 150.”
To avoid fraudulent transactions, Donately blocked activity from locations where they didn’t expect user activity, such as Russia and the far east. But then the team started to see much larger numbers of fraudulent transactions coming from their natural territory. In particular, the ratio of fraudulent to legitimate transactions originating from Brazil skyrocketed to 1,000:1. Donately didn’t want to block Brazil entirely, so the company realized it needed a bot management solution to prevent fraudulent transactions.
Donately saw a huge drop in fraudulent transactions after implementing Bot Defender. The number of fraudulent transaction attempts hitting their servers dropped from 100,000 to around 150 over a three-day period.
