We have been working with Q6 Cyber for over a year now, and I have to say that it has transformed our fraud prevention program. The actionable and timely threat intelligence provided by Q6 allows us to protect compromised customer accounts from fraudulent charges, reducing our fraud losses and maintaining our strong brand reputation. Our fraud prevention program is no longer reactive. It has become more proactive and more dynamic. The impact has been tremendous. Debit card fraud losses are down 50% vs. last year. All this adds up to a very valuable solution that has now become a key component of our fraud prevention program.”
I run a mature cybersecurity organization as one would expect for a large financial institution. What sparked my interest in Q6 Cyber’s threat intelligence service was their wide coverage outside our network perimeter into the DarkNet and the DeepWeb. The results have been astounding. Over the past 12 months, Q6 delivered approximately 2,000 targeted and actionable findings that represent real risks to our organization. I highly recommend Q6 to security and fraud prevention teams looking for an edge in combating cybercrime and fraud.”
