Guardian Analytics Launches “Omni-Channel Fraud Prevention”

GuardianAnalyticsHomepage4.16

Fraud-prevention company Guardian Analytics has launched its Omni-Channel Fraud Prevention solution that uses behavioral analytics and machine learning to prevent fraud across multiple channels.

The solution will be delivered in phases, the first of which is Omni-Channel Visual Analytics, which offers banks insight into customer fraud risk and behavior and a view of criminal activity. Subsequent phases include:

  • Enterprise API
    An API for banks to capture data about customer behavior and context for all banking transactions
  • Integrated Risk Database
    Storage for risk, account, and intelligence data that banks can use to enhance risk scoring and investigations
  • Omni-Channel Risk Scoring
    Advanced behavioral analytics that calculate risk scores for each customer

Capital Bank is piloting the new release. Zahid Afzal, Capital Bank’s chief technology and operations executive, says the omnichannel solutions “provide us with even better defenses and more visibility into our customers and their fraud-risk levels, which are central to our ability to expand our offerings and to deliver the faster, lower friction experience our customers demand.”

The California-based company is making the solution available through its early adopter program. Subscription pricing for larger banks starts at $50,000 per year.

Guardian Analytics complements its behavioral analytics using behavior-based anomaly detection. The company studies fraudsters’ strategies and dynamically adapts to the threats by bolstering its solution to prevent attacks at its 400+ financial institution customers.

Guardian Analytics debuted FraudXCHANGE at FinovateFall 2012.
