eCommerce & Payments

The world of ecommerce and digital payments is conducted at lightning speed where consumers expect friction-free experiences when signing up for new accounts and executing transactions. Unfortunately, cybercriminals take advantage of this "instant" environment, leveraging stolen identity data to bypass detection systems that have little time for decisioning. Many ecommerce and digital payment users tend to be millennials with insufficient credit data for legacy identity verification approaches. Tightening the operational controls to avoid fraud typically provides some initial relief, but also has the adverse impact of turning away a significant number of good customers.
