Harness machine learning in the fight against online fraud

The latest weapon in the fight against fraud is a professional managed service that uses the best of AI and machine learning.

Fraudsters have no signs of slowing down on fraudulent transactions, and as businesses work to protect payment transactions, fraudsters develop more advanced ways to access valuable data.

Whether that’s leveraging weaknesses in operational efficiencies, businesses need to ensure their fraud detection and prevention systems are on the top of their game.

That’s right. Today’s business environment requires that you’re not only prepared for today’s fraud tactics, but also able to anticipate and react to the ongoing evolution of fraud.

So, what should businesses look for when evaluating fraud detection and prevention? The first is a combination of unsupervised and supervised machine learning.

Machine learning: Where the AI rubber hits the road

Technology that uses unsupervised machine learning assimilates billions of data points to determine transaction validity, scoring, device identification, geolocation, IP proxies, dynamic monitoring, continuous authentication,
and more – along with supervised machine learning – to simultaneously analyse that same data.
