Products the Company Offers
Passive Biometric Analytics
CashShield uses data with a purpose – to understand your user. Passive biometric analytics helps CashShield map the user’s behaviour and identify if the person behind the transaction or login was a genuine user or a fraudster. Using each user’s unique fingerprint, CashShield can effectively filter the fraudsters away from the genuine users.
Real-Time Pattern Recognition
CashShield’s unprecedented use of pattern recognition in detecting fraud allows unparalleled accuracy in identifying fraudulent patterns, even for new transactions without historical data. Without pattern recognition, machines trained only with historical data will let fraudulent transactions with unfamiliar characteristics through undetected.
High-Frequency Trading Algorithms
Unique to CashShield, its complex algorithm applies the same principles of high-frequency trading to make instant decisions on whether to accept or reject a decision, by looking at all transactions as part of a portfolio. Since 0% risk gives you 0% returns, its algorithm helps you maximize your potential returns by optimizing your fraud risk. The results: high speeds, high acceptance rates and high profits for its merchants.

The Two Entities That Created the Company’s Success Path
Chief Executive Officer and Founder
As a student, Justin already saw the opportunities brought about by the advent of e-commerce and online payments, setting up a cross-border e-commerce business. It was when his sites were attacked by fraudsters that Justin devised his own system of rules on whether to accept or reject a transaction, which would later develop into the more sophisticated CashShield system today. Over the years of R&D, Justin successfully integrated various disciplines from the latest machine learning technologies and financial principles, creating the world’s first full machine automated fraud management system that functions without any human involvement.
Navigating the industry with his bootstrapped solution, Justin has led the CashShield team to meet and rise above countless challenges.
In his free time, Justin is a slave to his newborn babies, who, despite their troublesome antics, are really bundles full of joy.
