MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Guardian Analytics, the market leader in behavioral analytics and machine learning solutions for preventing banking and enterprise B2B portal fraud, today announced their sponsorship and attendance at the Association for Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) Global Fraud Conference, the leading annual conference for fraud prevention, detection and investigation professionals.
The financial fraud problem in corporations has grown rapidly in recent years, estimated to be 3-5% of annual revenues. As banks have strengthened their fraud defenses, fraudsters have increasingly directed their attacks on vulnerable enterprises. Even modern internet companies with sophisticated controls have recently fallen victim to B2B vendor fraud, resulting in combined losses of $100M through fraudulent wire transfers. These problems highlight the deficiencies of the existing fraud detection systems and call for a new approach.
Guardian Analytics will be showcasing Sentinel, the new fraud detection solution for B2B web portals and treasury management, built on top of the patent-pending behavioral analytics and machine-learning platform deployed at over 450 financial institutions and enterprises. Guardian Analytics Sentinel protects B2B vendor portals from a wide array of fraud types including account takeover, business email compromise (BEC), fake invoicing, fake purchase orders and modified wire and ACH templates. Guardian Analytics Sentinel addresses fraud detection needs of professionals in finance, supply chain, treasury management, and information security with a solution that offers greater precision and higher fraud capture.
According to Linda Coven, senior analyst with Aite Group's Wholesale Banking and Payments practice, "There is a growing need for enterprises to protect themselves from fraudulent attacks, such as BEC and Ransom-ware. To do so effectively may require the use of machine learning analytical tools."
"As digital transformation of modern enterprises continues, CFOs and controllers are faced with significant challenges in deploying payment fraud detection measures," said Prashanth Shetty, Vice President of Marketing for Guardian Analytics. "From business email compromise to fake invoicing, we're seeing a significant rise in crime targeting corporations. As such, it's important for these firms to have tools that can protect them from substantial losses."
Built on an open API, Guardian Analytics Sentinel includes an automated risk-scoring engine without requiring manual intervention. The "machine-to-machine" architecture allows for real-time intervention and can be deployed in as little as 60 days. Sentinel protects enterprises from reputational risk, reduces supply chain fraud losses and enhances operational efficiency by generating fewer false positive alerts.
