IBM Safer Payments

Real-time fraud prevention for any payment channel

Fraud PREVENTION vs Fraud Detection

IBM Safer Payments is a Next Generation Fraud Prevention platform that enables your team to more effectively identify and stop fraudulant payments BEFORE the money leaves the facility. As a true AI-based solution, Safer Payments allows your team to adapt their controls faster to emerging threats and detect fraud with greater speed and accuracy without vendor or data scientist dependencies.

It offers agile, real-time model refinement in a sand-box environment so your team can continuously monitor business performance and quickly adapt the decision model to emerging and modified fraud patterns. 

And, you can easily integrate your existing rules. With an open platform, customers can leverage their existing detection models and IP all at a low total cost of operation (TCO) as all required components are self-contained and run on commodity hardware.
