Global payments services provider, DataCash – a MasterCard company, said that its fraud management solution, GateKeeper:2.0 incorporates MasterCard’s expert monitoring system fraud scoring for merchants and also MasterCard’s lost-stolen account list application programming interface (API).
GateKeeper:2.0 is the first fraud management solution to link to MasterCard’s lost-stolen account list API, which cross references more than 30m lost and stolen cards globally, to help online merchants detect fraud.
MasterCard’s expert monitoring system fraud scoring for merchants also improves a merchant’s ability to identify fraud via a highly accurate predictive fraud score that gives broader insight into card behaviour.
DataCash added that the enhancements to GateKeeper:2.0 leverage the strength of the MasterCard network and data insights so that merchants can more accurately detect fraudulent transactions, as well as lessen the potential of rejecting genuine customers.
“These solutions are designed to help merchants run and grow their businesses more efficiently,” says Johan Gerber, group head, processing products for MasterCard. “The integration into DataCash’s GateKeeper:2.0 makes it a powerful single platform solution for merchants to manage and execute their fraud strategies.”
DataCash added that its webinar, entitled
‘Fraud Prevention Secrets to Successful Expansion’
