Many organizations face an upward battle when detecting and preventing fraud.

Consumers continue to rapidly migrate to digital channels and while organizations are also moving towards digitizing products and services to increase profit, it all comes at a price. Where transactions occur, fraudsters follow, seeking out new vulnerabilities to exploit and make the most profit with the lowest risk.

Today’s fraudsters deploy complex, multi-vector attacks and continually develop new strategies to bypass controls and exploit vulnerabilities. A multi-layered approach that includes physical identity, digital identity intelligence and behavioral biometrics is one of the best defenses for mitigating the risk of fraud.

The upward trend in online and mobile activity underscores the need for a global dynamic fraud solution that can verify identity and transaction attributes in real time across the customer journey.
