■ “VeriTrans4G” fraud detection service lineup
DGFT combines seven types of fraud detection services that have a proven track record in the area of fraud detection so that EC businesses using the comprehensive payment service “VeriTrans4G” can implement fraud countermeasures according to their own circumstances. We provide a “fraud detection service lineup” that can be selected according to the occurrence situation and budget.
Of the lineup, “ACI Red Shield” and “CAFIS Brain” are standardly implemented in “VeriTrans4G” and are automatically linked with the payment system. As a result, businesses using “VeriTrans4G” can easily introduce a fraud detection service by simply applying for the service, which will automatically link the transaction information and notify the judgment result at the same time as the payment processing result. In addition, even for services that are not linked to “VeriTrans4G”, the latest fraud detection rules and detection engines that have an extensive track record of introduction in Japan and overseas, such as “Forter” and “Sift” that utilize AI and machine learning. In addition to reducing fraud damage and chargeback risks for e-commerce business operators, we also contribute to reducing the cost and burden of fraud countermeasures.

■ Fraud detection service “Forter”
“Forter” is a SaaS solution that detects fraud such as credit card fraud, account takeover and promotion abuse in online businesses. Our proprietary judgment platform provides more accurate transaction judgments than conventional anti-fraud solutions and real-time judgments that eliminate the need for visual confirmation of suspicious transactions.
1) Increase sales by reducing losses such as chargebacks and improving false positives for legitimate users
A machine learning model that utilizes a unique global identity graph and behavioral data determines legitimate users and fraudulent users with high accuracy. Compared to conventional rule (condition)-based fraud detection, the detection accuracy is greatly improved, and false positives for legitimate users and fraudsters are improved.
2) Reduce operational costs such as visual inspection man-hours and rule updates In principle, the transaction judgment returns OK/NG in real time. By eliminating the need for visual confirmation of suspicious
transactions, it reduces operational costs such as visual inspection man-hours and reliance on individual skills. It also eliminates the need for operations such as updating rules.
3) In addition to fraud detection at the time of payment, judgment is also provided for account hijacking and countermeasures against resellers
“Forter” customizes the model for each business operator and builds a model that fits the business type and individual needs of the business operator. Individual customization improves judgment accuracy and reflects the individual needs of business operators.
■ Future development
With the advance of cashless payment, more advanced security measures are required for e-commerce businesses to realize safe online transactions. In terms of measures to prevent fraudulent use, in addition to fraud detection solutions such as “Forter”, which will be launched this time, it is also recommended to use EMV3D Secure (3D Secure 2.0)* as a new mechanism for online identity authentication in credit card payments. Since its founding, DGFT has built the advanced security environment and management system required of financial institutions, and has provided safe and secure payment solutions for both businesses and consumers.
