The solution includes a unique combination of patented predictive models, flexible rules engine, automated alerts and processes, business intelligence portal and unrivalled global fraud intelligence – all supported by a team of expert risk analysts.

“As fraud continues to evolve at a rapid pace, so too must the tools used to detect and prevent it,” said Jackie Barwell, director, product management, ACI Worldwide. “ It’s an honor for our talented fraud team to receive top recognition at Merchant Payments Ecosystem’s annual conference, and it’s proof that our approach – combining extensive fraud and transaction data from across the payments universe with dedicated fraud experts formulating complex risk strategies – is helping payment providers and merchants to effectively fight fraud.”
