NTT DATA to launch a cloud service for detecting unauthorized online payments

Detecting fraudulent payments with device recognition and advanced rules engine by 41st Parameter, a part of Experian.

NTT DATA Corporation (HQ: Tokyo, Koto-ku; President: Toshio Iwamoto), as part of an effort to detect online payment fraud, has developed a new Fraud Detection Service for CAFIS® (Credit And Finance Information System). The first phase will be aimed at e-commerce companies and will launch in April 2014.

There has been a sharp increase in both the volume of online transactions and international business in recent years. With credit cards being the dominant payment method, fraudulent payment protection has become a top priority for e-commerce companies.

Fraud Detection Service adopts 41st Parameter, a part of Experian’s proprietary device recognition and rules engine technology to provide a highly secure service from NTT DATA’s domestic data center. This service enables e-commerce companies offering physical products, airplane tickets, entertainment tickets and other items for sale online to minimize their fraud losses and more effectively grow their businesses. Further, with moves to include this fraud detection functionality to CAFIS’s existing transaction processing, users can expect fast and efficient fraud prevention.

NTT DATA aims to make a social contribution through the prevention of financial crime. In the future NTT DATA plans to continue to strengthen its online payment fraud solutions and include financial institutions and credit card companies.
