SWACHA Services Corporation and Guardian Analytics Announce Partnership to Provide Financial Institutions with Solutions to Prevent Payment Fraud and Unauthorized Account Access
Dallas, Texas and Mountain View, Calif.,—July 19, 2014 —SWACHA Services Corporation (SSC) announced today a partnership with Mountain View, Calif.-based Guardian Analytics to market a suite of software products that use behavioral analytics to prevent banking fraud. Dallas-based SWACHA Services Corporation is a for-profit, wholly owned subsidiary of SWACHA, one of the largest not-for-profit electronic payments associations in the country.
Guardian Analytics’ FraudMAP solutions use patented Dynamic Account Modeling™ technology to develop and dynamically maintain behavioral models for every user of electronic payment services or online banking. New activity is then analyzed relative to the established norm to detect suspicious or anomalous activity that could indicate fraudulent activity or identity theft. FraudMAP is able to quickly identify changes in behavior, capture the changes in an elevated risk score, and issue an alert so the affected organization can take immediate action.
“Partnering with Guardian Analytics allows us to offer a proven product to our clients to combat cyber-criminals who are stealing personal information and money,” said Tim Quisenberry, AAP, president of SWACHA Services Corporation. “Given the growing global issues of banking fraud and identity theft, we believe every financial institution needs to have this type of capability as part of their standard fraud prevention strategy.”
With Guardian Analytics solutions, financial institutions and others in the electronic payments industry can:
Monitor online and mobile banking activity from login to logout
Detect unauthorized access to all types of secure portals
Analyze ACH origination files at the batch and transaction levels
Analyze wire transactions in real-time
Conform to the anomaly detection component of the FFIEC Guidance
