Two business people shaking hands in front of a cityscape

We are in it for the long run

We are building a lasting relationship with our customers. This entails cooperative innovation, industry-leading training offers and stellar customer support.

Good is never good enough

In the volatile payments risk environment we all have to constantly evolve just to keep up. We demand only the highest standards from our solutions and strive to always be on the leading edge.

Trust has to be earned

Fraudsters and cybercriminals live from deception and obfuscation. At Web Shield, we operate with a strict policy of transparency and honesty - and demand the same from our customers.

We can't do it alone

No single person or company can win the war against fraud. But together, we can make a difference. That is why networking is such a crucial aspect of the Web Shield Academy.

Grown out of the industry

Web Shield's story

Web Shield grew out of the FinTech and challenger bank hype of the 2000s and 2010s. Our founder and the starting team saw that even major industry players did not have the tools to easily manage their risk and remain compliant - so they built them.


The first release

Based on the “Investigative Risk Analysis” methodology of our founder, we start developing our first software prototypes. The process culminates in version 1.0 of our underwriting and monitoring solutions.



Following the successful testing of the first release, Web Shield Limited is incorporated in the UK. The first small team starts working from remote offices in several European countries.


Teaching and settling down

The Web Shield Academy is established to foster awareness of new fraud trends and underwriting best practices. At the same time, we open our headquarters in Leipzig, Germany.


Becoming a Mastercard Merchant Monitoring Service Provider (MMSP)

From its founding, Web Shield has fostered a constructive relationship with the credit card associations. With Web Shield becoming an official Mastercard Merchant Monitoring Service Provider, principal members of Mastercard can reduce assessment fees if they use our solutions.


InvestiGate and Monitor

Our new underwriting and monitoring solutions build on the same methodology but deliver a more comprehensive and user-focused experience.


A ZignSec company

Web Shield becomes part of the ZignSec Group, the Swedish digital onboarding and KYC innovator.


As part of the ZignSec Group, Web Shield is maintaining its core expertise in card scheme compliance while exploring new synergies in the RegTech field.
