NICE Actimize Presents Innovative Cloud Based PSD2 Readiness Fraud Management Solution

Sponsored by Businesswire

The race is on for financial institutions in the European Union
community to finalize their readiness for the Payment Services Directive
(PSD2) compliance deadlines coming up this September. To assist FIs of
all size, NICE Actimize, a NICE (Nasdaq: NICE) business and the
leader in Autonomous Financial Crime Management, has introduced a fraud
profiling solution for PSD2 compliance and beyond, now also available as
a SaaS solution, to address the unique requirements of PSD2 set by the
European Union (EU).

Bolstered by NICE Actimize’s proven experience in real-time payments
fraud detection, the purpose-built, secure cloud solution enables faster
deployment and lower total cost of ownership, bringing sophisticated
fraud analytics to all sizes of financial institutions.

The Actimize cloud-based offering provides industry leading, end-to-end
fraud management capabilities with real-time transaction risk analysis
(TRA), cross-channel fraud detection, and multi-payment coverage, as
well as extensive fraud alert and case management functionality.
Leveraging the insights and experience gained from more than a decade
supporting the world’s largest banks and FIs, the Actimize fraud
profiling solution for PSD2 compliance combines expert-driven models and
machine learning algorithms to produce the best possible risk score with
the lowest rate of false positives.

Recently in the EU, the deadline passed for Payment Service Providers
(PSPs) to have their Payment Services Directive (PSD2) APIs
available for external testing. FIs are now faced with meeting the full
requirements for a September 14 live date for these APIs. Alongside
this, the additional requirement of Strong Customer Authentication (SCA)
adds further friction that firms will want to reduce. This means some
serious catch-up for those who missed the first benchmark, while
presenting challenges for mid-sized institutions with fewer resources
available to implement the process.

The NICE Actimize fraud profiling solution for PSD2 compliance offers
these benefits

  • Provides a real-time risk score for every payment transaction and
    enables automated decisioning on alerting, delaying, blocking etc.
  • Reduces the need for Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) through
    risk-based authentication controls and proven low fraud rates.
  • Allows FIs to meet PSD2 Fraud Reporting requirements and PSD2
    profiling compliance under Articles 2 and 18 without significant build
    and IT investments.

Craig Costigan, CEO, NICE Actimize
“As a market leader in
enterprise fraud in the cloud, with core strengths in authentication,
NICE Actimize is prepared to support institutions of all types as they
become PSD2 compliant. To win the battle against new fraud threats,
financial institutions will need to have in place reporting and
monitoring of Open Banking transactions, to provide insight into how
they are being used and abused, looking for anomalies along with
understanding any new fraud typologies. Our fraud portfolio is ideally
suited to meet the needs of this game-changing environment.”
