StrongHold Fraud Prevention Platform

A powerful real-time analytics platform for detecting and preventing fraud across digital channels.

Fraud constantly evolves. And so should your fraud prevention department.

With the evolution in the way consumers shop, make payments, and live their lives, their behaviour patterns also evolve. To capture that change and profit from it, fraudsters closely follow the trends and adapt their strategies. Therefore, your fraud prevention department should adapt too. 

According to the information security analysts, like Michael Heiligenstein, fraud in the digital age is heavily based on social engineering and exploiting consumers’ limited awareness of current cyber threats and failure to apply  “digital hygiene” principles to everything they do online. Gone are the days when fraudsters just tried to counterfeit or hijack the card or device consumers were using. This paradigm shift in fraudulent behavior warrants continued investment in fraud prevention strategies to protect their business and their customer activities.

There is an increase in the channels consumers are using to engage with your organization’s offerings – card payments are not the only channel consumers are using anymore. There are cards, there are HCE tokens, and there are mobile wallets, digital banks, and wearables .. Consumers are also more mobile than before.

With all of these changes, your organization deserves/demands a fraud prevention system that will not only be light and efficient resource-wise but also will effectively detect and prevent fraudulent activity in this complex consumer channel mix in real time.

Introducing StrongHold Fraud Prevention – a real-time behaviour analytics system

StrongHold Fraud Prevention is a behavioural analytics system, whose genesis stems back all the way to 2002 when D8 Corporation began its journey in the payment cards industry.

StrongHold creates a behavioural model of each consumer, based on  preconfigured parameters (such as amounts spent, geolocation, etc.), and then analyzes currently observed activity in real-time against historical consumer behaviour.

Whenever StrongHold detects any deviation  in typical behaviour, it can produce an alert or be empowered to take action. For example, if a login attempt from the previously unused device or previously unused location is attempted, StrongHold Fraud Prevention can automatically block that login attempt or request a confirmation from the consumer without any human intervention.

This enables detection of even the most complex patterns in customer activity, that would have been impossible to track manually.

Digital channels StrongHold Fraud Prevention supports:

Cards authorization Core/Switch

For screening all authorization requests of payment cards with a real-time decision making.

CRM/IVR/Other backoffice

For including data about customer activity in the backoffice systems (support calls, password changes, etc.).

Digital Banking

For screening customer activity events in digital banking systems, like - logins, change of settings, payment orders, etc.

Other systems

Potential data sources are not limited to the ones stated. We're happy to discuss any custom integration requests you might have.
