We're committed to solving the impossible
Forter’s mission is to build trust in e-commerce by eliminating fraud for online merchants and marketplaces. To do this, we deliver fully automated and highly accurate decisions in real time. Our approach makes the customer experience easier and more secure, both of which boost revenue.
Michael Reitblat (CEO), Liron Damri (President), and Alon Shemesh (Chief Analyst) founded Forter in 2013 to prove that conventional tactics were inadequate for the realities of online commerce, and that automation was possible. All three had served together in the cyber intelligence unit of the Israeli Army and later joined Fraud Sciences, which was acquired by PayPal in 2008. With a combination of intelligent technology, extensive experience and a keen understanding of merchant needs, the three developed a holistic fraud prevention solution that is fully automated and a driver for growth. Today, Forter processes more than $50B transactions annually and has offices in the United States, the United Kingdom and Israel.
Founded in 2013, Forter uses automation to render highly accurate fraud prevention decisions in less than one second.
Forter’s fraud prevention offering debuted in 2014, enabling clients to use Forter’s outsourced solution to stay ahead of criminals.
Fraud doesn’t just happen at checkout. Our end-to-end solution, introduced in 2017, prevents fraud at every step of the customer journey.
Forter continues to grow its research and domain expertise, adapting its technology to prevent new and emerging fraud techniques.
Good companies become great when the odds are against them. In the face of adversity, they push harder. So when our industry says a goal is “impossible,” we see an opportunity to innovate. We have a resilient and nimble team that knows how to overcome incredible obstacles and reach unattainable goals. With focus and determination, we beat the odds and help make the world a little safer.

My first job was debt collection. Unfortunately it wasn’t over the phone; I had to visit businesses in person to collect debts. As you can imagine, I got yelled at frequently.

For a time, I flew single engine planes. Once I got lost in the sky with my best friend and considered doing a tree top landing since there were no open fields. We ended up safely landing, but I told my friend we were lost. He never flew with me again.
While our decisions are fully automated, the platform that makes them is the brainchild of experts who take the word “impossible” as a personal challenge.
