Fraud Solution Profile

What we do:
We stop fraudsters and devices from placing illegitimate orders through web and mobile channels. Using our extensive domain knowledge and the latest technology around device fingerprinting and machine learning, we conduct linkage analysis of transactions – taking into account factors such as geo-proximity and the time of transactional occurrence. We have over 5 years of experience operating under the second largest global retailer in the world, as well as an abundance of experience working with a variety of e-commerce, telecom and financial companies across Europe.

Our Software:
Fraudsters are always looking for new ways to remain undetected, which means that fraud prevention software needs to be able to adapt to the changing technology and behaviors of fraudsters. Our self-developed software couples traditional rule sets with technically advanced machine learning algorithms which adapt, and learn to perform in the unique environment of each client.

We allocate a risk score to cross-channel devices and millions of transactions and specifically label the type of fraud present. This is helping our global clients better utilize their fraud teams by allowing them to focus their efforts on the right areas, classify 6% more instances, reduce false-positive-rates to ~0.4%, and save all important time.
