IP and domain blocking

You may find yourself being targeted by a fraudster. If so, you can block specific IP addresses, email domains, countries/regions, and more from within your gateway.

There's no fraud like targeted fraud. It's bad enough getting hit with one or two bogus orders. It's a whole new ballgame when you find yourself being actively attacked by a fraudster, trying to find holes in your organization's defenses. It'll keep you up at night, and if it happens, you have several tools at your disposal to help combat the issue.

Typically, a fraudster will be coming from a specific IP address, and if so, you can easily block their IP address or a range of similar addresses. This doesn't always work if they're utilizing a VPN, though. Alternately, you are able to block specific domains as well if you isolate a pattern.

Sometimes, it's easier to just cut off an entire country/region. Most merchants don't do much international business, so if you see a fraudster is regularly using international IP addresses through a VPN, why not just eliminate all international sales? You have that power with the AND gateway - cut out specific countries or regions to stop a fraudster in their tracks.
