New York – June 16, 2016 – NICE Actimize, a NICE (NASDAQ:NICE) business and the largest and broadest provider of a single financial crime, risk and compliance software platform for the financial services industry, was among the profiled companies in Forrester Research’s June 2016 “Vendor Landscape: Mobile Fraud Management Solutions” analyst report. The report stated that U.S. mobile payments will exceed $141 billion in 2019, noting that mobile commerce offers fraudsters more options than any other channel.
Outlining solutions’ trends connected to the mobile commerce environment, the Forrester report cited that NICE Actimize provides mobile application and wallet-specific scoring analytic models. The report explained, “NICE Actimize builds customer profiles based on payment, channel, nonmonetary account service data (age of account, etc.) and P2P transaction attributes. The vendor has analytic models specific to mobile wallet provisioning that look at anomalies in the number of accounts provisioned to the device, tokenization, payment transactions, and spatial and temporal velocities of the wallet’s use. The NICE Actimize Fraud Management Hub ingests third party device data, malware and application data to risk score mobile transactions.”
According to Forrester, fraud management solutions offer varied capabilities to dealing with fraud, from purely profiling payment transactions and linking them to mobile devices all the way to reading device attributes and fingerprints and building fraud prediction models. Forrester recommended that financial institutions give more weight to those vendors that integrate mobile data and offer models as well as implement strong reporting on mobile fraud management.
The report also stated, “As the mobile channel is relatively new and its detection not as mature, fraudsters are turning to it in the hopes that they will have an easier time perpetrating fraud initiated from mobile devices.”
“As our financial institution customers work to secure mobile banking applications and services, mobile fraud detection technologies are a core investment area for them,” said Erez Zohar, Vice President & General Manager, Fraud & Cybercrime Management Solutions, NICE Actimize. “Our predictive fraud analytics models are helping them stay ahead of emerging threats and we are committed to investing in technology and systems that offer cross-channel fraud monitoring while meeting mobile banking clients’ evolving needs.”
