Ready for a fully insured fraud fight ?

I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Kevin Gosschalk, Founder and CEO of Arkose Labs. Since launching the company in 2016, he has been instrumental in building a suite of fraud prevention solutions that deliver long term remediation from attacks by breaking the underlying economics behind online fraud. Under Kevin’s leadership, Arkose Labs has raised more than $114 million in venture funding, rapidly scaled its customer base and workforce. And has transformed the world of digital commerce by working with some of the world’s leading businesses.

Kevin Gosschalk, CEO Arkose Labs, was born and raised in Brisbane, Australia, and graduated from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) with a degree in Interactive Entertainment. Prior to founding Arkose Labs he worked in biomedical research where he used machine vision technology for early detection of diabetes.

His unique background has enabled him to take this disruptive approach that gamifies fraud prevention.

Arkose Labs was founded by Kevin in 2016, it bankrupts the business model of fraud. The companies innovative approach determines true user intent and remediates attacks in real-time. Risk assessments combined with interactive authentication challenges undermine the ROI behind attacks, providing long-term protection while improving good customer throughput. Backed by Microsoft, PayPal, SoftBank and Wells Fargo, Arkose Labs is hailed by customers as a user-friendly solution to an ever-evolving fraud landscape.

At Money 2020 last year the company announced its industry-first warranty on account protection solution to minimize the threat of credential stuffing attacks.
