Multi-channel Payment fraud detection


Fraud is a global problem of considerable magnitude, and continues to grow despite the best efforts of all concerned in the payments industry. A recent European Committee report states 10 million fraudulent transactions in the SEPA area occur each year, affecting some 500,000 merchants and translating to roughly €1 billion in losses.


A large number of banks and payment processors have already chosen Riskshield to protect their ACH, international payments (e.g. SWIFT), direct debits, SEPA payments and other transaction types from fraudulent attacks using a multitude of detection techniques. RiskShield’s fraud management solution is built on a multi-channel fraud platform allowing financial institutions to gradually deploy an enterprise-wide fraud detection and prevention solution.


RiskShield helps minimize these fraud losses through advanced fuzzy based decision logic, which can be easily adapted for any kind of payment processor. In addition, RiskShield offers comprehensive investigation, response and recovery tools that allow banks and payment processor to block transactions and stop payments in real-time where needed.
