These characteristics allow to optimize the processes and assist efficiently in the compliance of regulatory reports. PSAML is able to identify very suspicious cases thus improving staff performance and, consecuently, lowering costs.
PSAML has received the distinction of having been listed as the third best anti-laundering solution (of forty-four solutions in operation) at the recent Hemispheric Asset Laundering Congress organized by the Banking Association of Panama that took place in Panama City .
Like PSFraud, PSFraudAuthorizer is a web application and calculation system that uses sophisticated mathematical technology and can respond in real time to the threat of fraud. In the case of «normal» PSFraud, electronic banking transactions are analyzed after they have already been approved by the Authorized System of the banking core. The first fraud, and often the second, cannot be prevented. In extreme cases, as with fraud coming from multiple sources instantly, there is no way to avoid it, the Bank acquiring large losses.
Unlike PSFraud, PSFraudAuthorizer is used for fraud detection at the Authorization System level, that is, before electronic transactions have been approved by the system. This allows the expert knowledge of the PSFraud system to be used so as not to let even the first attempt at fraud occur.
PSFraudAuthorizer, supported by symbolic Vector technology and analytical mathematics but with variations in certain algorithms and with other levels of confidence, is able to identify fraud with a very high degree of confidence. If the trust is so high, and its certainty can be verified, then these types of transactions can be declined without fear of harming the end users (card- or accountholders). As these analyzes take a few microseconds, as soon as the transactions arrive, PSFraudAuthorizer can, in direct communication with the Bantotal Authorization System, decline fraudulent transactions before they are approved. On the negative side, however, it is clear that the level of fraud detection at this level of confidence is not as high as with PSFraud, where higher levels can indeed be found but at the cost of false alerts. Typically, a detection rate of about 5% to 45% of all normally approved fraud can be expected.
The advantages of using PSFraudAuthorizer for the banking institution are enormous: (1) completely avoids fraud at the rates mentioned in the last paragraph, (2) users do are bothered because the blocking of their cards or accounts is very accurate, (3) the number of personnel in the analyst team can decrease significantly, (4) the procedure is simplified because all urgent contact attempts with the end user are also avoided.
This product can be used for all accounts and channels.
