  • High availability, ensuring speed and certainty of messaging and response times.
  • Real-time validation and processing of payment instructions for clear visibility of ongoing liquidity.

Real-time fraud monitoring for NPP transactions

In an economy where customers expect payments to be sent in real-time, traditional approaches to fraud prevention are less effective. And although the NPP isn’t riskier than any other payment platform, fraudsters are always looking for new opportunities to make money.

The velocity and irrevocable nature of real-time payments mean that organisations no longer have the luxury of time to detect and prevent fraudulent activity before a payment is processed. A state of the art fraud management platform is therefore essential to managing and reducing the risks of fraud for your customers and business.

We have created Vigil for NPP, an advanced, data-driven fraud engine, which leverages artificial intelligence and machine learning to identify and reduce fraud, while still allowing payments to be authorised in real-time.
