European fraud-fighting company Trustev made an announcement yesterday that further proves the increase in demand for fraud prevention security platforms. After receiving $3 million in seed funding in October, the Ireland-based company announced an extra $500k investment from Notion Capital.
The startup, which processes an average of 2 million customer transactions per week for 60 merchant customers, will use the extra cash to increase the number of transactions it protects. By February, it plans to protect 10 million customer transactions per week, a 5x increase.
Additionally, by Q2 2014, it plans to bolster its service by not only protecting transactions, but also by guaranteeing the protection from fraud.
