Meeting Your Anti-Fraud, Theft and Abuse Needs

Fraud, theft, and abuse detection and prevention is a big data challenge, especially as business moves online. Patterns of internal or external fraud often lie in the massive amounts of unstructured machine data and log files generated by your business applications and systems.

Splunk® software lets organizations harness this machine data to meet a wide range of anti-fraud, theft and abuse team needs including:

  • Fraud detection— real-time correlation searches or anomaly detection can identify and alert on fraud as it happens so organizations can act to prevent the fraud before it adversely impacts the bottom line
  • Fraud investigations—quickly search and pivot through massive amounts of current or historical machine data to research possible fraud and to understand the "who, what, where, when and how" around a possibly fraudulent action
  • Fraud analytics and reporting—make it easy to analyze, measure and manage fraud risk for a wide range of internal users
  • Enhance existing anti-fraud tools—index event data from siloed tools to create an aggregate fraud score for a single transaction
  • Create consolidated reports and dashboards to view enterprise-wide fraud risk on a single pane of glass
  • Use Splunk® User Behavior Analytics to detect account takeover by uncovering malicious or anomalous behavior associated with users (including root, service and other shared privileged accounts), devices, and applications.
