buguroo Launches Policy Manager for Customisable Automated Fraud Detection and Prevention
November 2020 by Marc Jacob
buguroo announced the launch of Policy Manager as part of its latest product update. The new capability of buguroo’s fraudster identification tool, Fraudster Hunter, allows fraud analysts to provide extensive detection and prevention coverage by leveraging previously identified fraud threats. This actionable data can then be used to generate alerts to help stop in-progress fraudsters before they create new accounts, compromise existing acco unts, and establish a network of mule accounts.
To comprehensively prevent fraud, banks need to identify and block its perpetrators. Policy Manager allows fraud analysts to employ a comprehensive range of discovered suspicious and fraudulent activity to proactively stop fraudsters. Fraud analysts can then utilise this data to create rules which actively scan all user transactions at every point in the customer journey in order to identify and alert on suspicious activity. In the case of a match, buguroo’s platform automatically triggers alerts notifying the financial institution of potentially fraudulent activity. This allows them to take the appropriate action - ranging from stepping up authentication to terminating the transaction - depending on the level of risk. Analysts can store rules and use them to build complex, customised fraud prevention campaigns to actively scan for any combined set of fraud attacks.
