TEL AVIV, Israel, July 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- EverCompliant, a leading provider of cyber risk intelligence and pioneer of transaction laundering detection and prevention, has announced today the release of MerchantView 3.0, the third generation of transaction laundering detection and prevention.
A transaction mule is a term used to distinguish a legitimate merchant from a merchant that is actively involved in funneling transactions from illegal or unreported origins. Transaction laundering takes place when a merchant processes payments and/or is involved in illegal, unreported activity on behalf of or through a legitimate merchant account. The term is used to distinguish illegal and unreported aggregation activity from the legitimate activity of reported and known aggregation. Both these terms were introduced by EverCompliant, a couple of years ago, when they noticed a monumental shift in online fraud activity from traditional consumer fraud towards merchant base fraud.
"We are excited about this new release," said Ron Teicher CEO of EverCompliant. "This release serves as a prime example for our ongoing strive for disruptive innovation. A few years back, we introduced the multi-layer approach for transaction laundering detection as well as the MerchantView EcoSystem™. Today, we introduce MerchantView 3.0, the most thoroughly tested solution that combines years of experience and invaluable feedback from our partners, which include some of the world's largest financial institutions."
MerchantView 3.0 introduces the following features:
- Transaction laundering enhancements offering industry-leading transaction laundering detection capabilities, yielding high quality results while minimizing false positives.
- Automatic transaction laundering validation to provide concrete evidence of actual transactions laundering activity taking place.
- Highly advanced cyber investigation techniques that are attuned to the latest criminal methods developed by experts who come out of one of the world's most respected cyber intelligence organizations.
- Timely turnaround via a convenient web-based MerchantView portal enabling acquirers and PSPs to onboard and monitor any number of merchants and detect instantly whether a merchant is involved in illegal online activity or fraud.
- Comprehensive reporting and on-demand information, including violation reports with actionable recommendations to facilitate timely disposition of findings.
With MerchantView 3.0, acquirers and PSPs can continue to experience the following:
- Dramatic reduction of undetected transaction laundering activity in their portfolio.
