Anti-Money Laundering

Anti-money laundering fines are currently over $14B per year and rising, and compliance teams are constantly trying to balance the risk of fines with the high cost of managing false positives. Traditional approaches to anti-money laundering transaction monitoring are prone to false alarms and unable to detect sophisticated money laundering techniques. A recent PWC report estimates that 90-95% of alerts are false positives. Using Unsupervised Machine Learning, DataVisor provides the industry’s most advanced AML transaction monitoring solution that can drastically reduce false positives and false negatives compared to current TMS solutions.

Detect Money Laundering Techniques

Mass Registration red v0

Mule Accounts

Money launderers utilize synthetic or stolen identities to create fake accounts to move funds

Structuring red v1


Money launderers avoid CTR reporting through depositing funds in small denominations

Layering red v0


Money launderers transfer funds through multiple mule accounts to mask money flows

Dramatically Reduce False Positives and False Negatives


Traditional transaction monitoring solutions rely on rules or supervised machine learning models that require constant tuning as bad actors discover new ways to evade detection. DataVisor’s unsupervised machine learning engine analyzes hundreds of millions of accounts and events to identify hidden patterns between accounts. This approach dramatically reduces false positives while simultaneously increasing detection coverage. In addition, by creating human-understandable rules, DataVisor’s solutions allows clients to meet strict compliance requirements.
