A Thing Soaring Over Fraud


Soaring Over Fraud



First Atlantic Commerce has formed an agreement with HNC Software, Inc., that protects e-commerce merchants from the risks of card-not-present transactions on the Web. Under the agreement, First Atlantic Commerce will offer its customers HNC’s eFalcon Internet bank card fraud detection system.

“Internet merchants are concerned about fraud perpetrated online, since they are responsible for losses incurred through card-not-present transactions,” says Walter Lee, vice president of Internet risk products for HNC Software. “With First Atlantic Commerce’s high level of security in its services, plus the advanced online fraud detection capabilities of the eFalcon system, merchants are well protected from potential bank card fraud.”

eFalcon is a fraud detection and risk management service available to online merchants. The solution uses neural networks, scores, and rules to distinguish between legitimate shoppers and fraudulent purchasers. It also allows merchants to set policies for accepting and rejecting transactions. eFalcon is based on HNC’s Falcon bank card fraud detection technology, developed over a 10-year period and used to protect more than 300 million payment card accounts worldwide.

Andrea Wilson, CEO of First Atlantic Commerce, said, “The key to success in the new Internet economy is to establish alliances with industry leaders, to leverage existing expertise to provide the best available solution. eFalcon is recognized as the leading Internet credit fraud protection solution on the market.”
