An achievement for the ArkOwl research and development team has been the elimination of false positives and false negatives.

False positives and false negatives come from information that is out-of-date. ArkOwl competitors depend on shared data between customers to keep their data updated. ArkOwl depends on real-time data from many live sources as well as drawing from its own database. This results with information being always up-to-date in the moment of the query made on the ArkOwl service. Up-to-date information is the cure for eliminating false information, and is needed to accurately uncover fraud or confirm legitimacy.

ArkOwl does this while being affordably priced to the high-volume user. Instead of positioning its price to be a luxury add-on service that can only be used for the most questionable of orders, ArkOwl has positioned its price to be used on all transactions to filter the maximum number of fraud orders.
