Transaction Fraud

Stop Chargebacks Before They Happen

As digital banking, fintech, and social commerce businesses flourish, so do fraudsters and their sophisticated attacks. Gone are the days where a single attacker uses a single stolen credit card to make a quick score. Financial fraud has become a professional enterprise, with a complete ecosystem of fraud-as-a-service stealing over $16B per year. Using an unsupervised machine learning approach, DataVisor’s solution can uncover the most complex fraudulent activities before any monetary damage is done.

Why Unsupervised Machine Learning for Detecting Fraudulent Transactions?

Where there’s money, there’s a fraudster trying to game the system. Despite advances in fraud detection techniques using supervised machine learning, fraudsters have learned how to appear legitimate to these trained models by continuously adapting their techniques. Powered by the latest big data technologies, DataVisor’s unsupervised machine learning algorithm takes a global view of all the transactions and accounts together to uncover highly correlated, suspicious clusters of fraudulent activities. When viewed in the full context of all accounts, a fraudulent transaction that once appeared legitimate now sticks out like a sore thumb. Even better, DataVisor’s unsupervised approach doesn’t require delayed chargeback labels from being able to find new attack techniques, thereby shortening the window of exposure to these attacks.
