Through the wonders of online shopping, consumers have immediate access to a wide world of commerce – from exotic vacations, to favorite books, to special gifts for the ones they love.
Yet the convenience and flexibility offered by eCommerce transactions also come with a real and growing risk: online fraud.
Fraudsters are constantly prowling the web in search of vulnerabilities, and they’re increasingly targeting the “Navigation Layer” of websites, where transactions take place.
eCommerce merchants bear the greatest liability from online fraud, and with the increased sophistication of attacks, they’re finding it more difficult to distinguish between good customers and criminals.
That’s why MasterCard is joining forces with Silver Tail Systems, a leading provider of web session intelligence, to provide state-of-the-art fraud-monitoring tools to online merchants.
By combining Silver Tail Systems’ technology with MasterCard’s extensive payments experience and insights, we can help merchants differentiate fraudsters from legitimate consumers in real-time during the online shopping experience.
And with eCommerce transactions reaching record levels, the stakes couldn’t be higher.
I hope you’ll take a couple of minutes to watch the brief video below for some additional insights into our new relationship.
