Project Metamorphosis: Unveiling the next-gen event streaming platformLearn More

Detect and Understand Fraud In Real Time

As systems scale and migrate into the cloud, those seeking to infiltrate enterprise systems are presented with new and more frequent opportunities to succeed. Fighting fraudsters is a challenge now best addressed with a combination of data and speed – companies are finding and using real-time techniques to uncover bad actors in their systems with great precision.

Anti-laundering, payments fraud, internal theft, identity theft and other forms of fraud are all stressing organizations using traditional, batch-oriented and siloed methods of detection. That's because those methods often can't identify the pattern without either a huge resource outlay, or worse, a significant delay before detection.

Fraud Detection Can Be as Adaptive as Fraudulent Actors

Confluent Platform offers an event streaming platform upon which you can unite all your systems, data sources, and applications into a global, scalable, event-driven architecture.

Real-Time Data

Seconds matter when so much is at stake. All too often key components to combating fraud are kept in outdated batch systems.

Intelligent Action

In order to best find the outlying data point or area of concern, proper analysis requires data from multiple sources, or even third party sources. Having a scalable, single source to connect and access that data is essential.

Agile Detection

Fraud changes quickly. It’s important that what you’re monitoring it with is equally adaptable. Flexible, open systems that integrate well with new data types can put you one step ahead.

Why a Streaming Platform?


Today, data is locked up in systems that don't talk to each other. Companies want a single, real-time source of truth about your business that reaches the very end points of your organization: a central nervous system that enables you to react as events arrive, turning inaccessible systems inside out.


Confluent Platform adds administration, data management, operations tools and robust testing to your Kafka environment, making it the source of truth to identify any potential threat.


Whether for cost or performance, an architecture based on a highly scalable, distributed event streaming platform like Confluent will grow quickly with your business and the expanding data pipelines that come with it, accelerating both performance and cost savings.

Fraud Detection Across Industries

Confluent Platform gives you the tools, scale, and immediacy required to understand what is happening and build the real-time application logic to best understand and prevent deceptive behavior.

Financial Services

Financial services are in a never ending battle with fraud. An event streaming platform can be a centralized source for real-time data, to process, act, and prevent fraudulent behavior.


Fighting fraud requires a deep understanding of your users. The ability to identify what is an out-of-the-ordinary pattern, having a complete picture and tools at your disposal to create that business logic is essential to a continuously robust fraud detection practice.
