Product ownership

Three products crafted by Ethe company’s team spearhead the fight against online product abuse.

1. APEWS (Abuse Prevention and Early Warning System)
By analyzing patterns based on AI and rule-based systems, APEWS can predict potential abusive use of domain names.

2. KYC (Know Your Customer) Portal
The KYC Portal is essential for validating the identity of customers, particularly when abuse or non-eligibility is suspected. It facilitates a secure and efficient process for holders to confirm their data, with automated validation options for those within the EU and EEA.

IDENTITY serves as the critical link between our abuse detection efforts (including alerts from APEWS) and the KYC validation process. This tool automates the handling, alerting, and reporting of potential abuse cases, ensuring a coordinated response across the board.
