Founded in 2008, SHIELD is a device-first risk AI platform. Combining over a decade of expertise, a global presence, and the latest AI & machine learning technology, we are creating the world-leading technology and setting new benchmarks in the industry. Despite our team of fewer than 100 employees, our solution outperforms expectations, showcasing remarkable efficiency and effectiveness that surpasses competitors five to ten times our size.

We specialize in helping mobile apps build trust and safety by stopping all fraud and abuse. SHIELD identifies the root of fraud with device identification (SHIELD Device ID). It accurately identifies the physical device behind fake accounts, and analyzes thousands of device, network, and behavioral data to provide actionable risk intelligence in real time, stopping account takeovers, fake reviews, location spoofing, identity fraud, referral & promo abuse, payment fraud, and more.

Our Device-First Risk AI Platform can be used to complement existing risk engines or as a stand-alone solution. It is easily deployed in minutes via Javascript (for web) or iOS & Android SDKs (for app), supports Unity, React Native, Flutter and Cordova, and does not require PII data to start.

We are trusted by global unicorns like inDrive, Alibaba, Swiggy, Meesho, TrueMoney, and more. With offices in San Francisco, Miami, London, Berlin, Jakarta, Bengaluru, Beijing, and Singapore, we are rapidly achieving our mission – eliminating unfairness to enable trust for the world.
