Card Fraud Detection Software: Enterprise and Transaction Solutions Converge

Mercator Advisory Group releases research on recent trends and product developments in software for card fraud detection.

Boston, MA – March 05, 2014 – Recent data breaches at major U.S. retailers have reinvigorated the discussion of how the payments industry can improve the way stakeholders protect card data. Issuers are completely rethinking how they handle fraud incident resolution while simultaneously managing an ever-expanding array of payment channels and a long-awaited shift to the EMV standard.

These changes are having a noticeable impact on the vendors that provide financial institutions with fraud detection software.

It reviews leading solutions from around the world and provides an assessment of the future state of U.S. issuers’ fraud detection efforts.
