TietoEnator enhances card fraud detection capabilities at Latvian BankServiss

TietoEnator has delivered an advanced card fraud detection solution to the leading Latvian processing centre BankServiss.

BankServiss's existing payment card data processing infrastructure has been upgraded to a new level of efficiency. The new solution helps BankServiss to identify card fraud and prevent losses by examining incoming card transactions and authorizations, compiling statistics on fraud as well as elaborating cardholder and merchant behaviour models. In addition, BankServiss's card risk management system is now compliant with Visa EU card authorization monitoring requirements.

Over 20 issuing and acquiring banks and non-banking card issuers and acquirers served by BankServiss benefit from the new solution for card fraud detection.

"The new system enables us to combat fraudulent use of cards more efficiently. Its advantage lies in having facilities to take immediate action to prevent money loss", tells Zanda Brivule, Managing Director, BankServiss.

"Payment card systems are very complicated since many parties from different countries across the world are involved in transactions. This fact entails engagement in corrupt practices among criminals. That's why banks and card processing companies need advanced software tools to conduct proactive fraud detection", says Maris Ozolins, General Manager, TietoEnator Banking Solutions, Cards.

The Visa and MasterCard compliant solution of TietoEnator is in use in over 20 European banks and card processing centres.
