Almost every day there is a new story of account takeover or cyber criminals draining commercial bank accounts. This leaves banks in the very difficult situation of needing to provide stronger authentication and more sophisticated technology to help prevent similar attacks in the future.
According to the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council's expected new guidance for online authentication, device identification and behavioral analysis is a necessity born from increasing overseas cyber attacks on US accounts.
The latest release of SAS Fraud Management 3.2 is helping financial institutions to better detect, prevent and manage fraud across multiple products, lines of business and channels. This version includes an integrated application programming interface and improved real-time processing of all transactions to deliver more accurate alerts to aggressively monitor and detect emerging fraud threats such as ACH, Wire, One-Line and Account Takeover. SAS recently received patent approval for analytic technology in the new version of SAS Fraud Management. The solution captures the history for different entities (card, account, customer, terminal ID, IP address) involved in the transactions, increasing the accuracy in detection of customer behaviors that fall outside the norm during point-of-sale transactions. The key benefits include a better customer experience because of reduced false positive alerts and increased detection rates - which save the bank from fraud losses.
Some additional benefits include:
- to accommodate an enterprise vision with minimal IT upgrade and a change in management processes, which lowers total cost of ownership.
- to hook into multiple host environments and interface alert results with other vendor applications including IVR, call center applications, case management systems.
Superior rule management
- configuration to monitor and track historical behavior patterns at different entities based on business needs.
Proven and experienced global implementation team
- with a consistent implementation methodology and industry best practices.
