GlobalCollect Selects Alaric's Fractals for Enterprise Risk Management

Amsterdam and London, 04 December 2012: Alaric International, a leading global supplier of fraud prevention and payments solutions, today announced that GlobalCollect, the world's premier payment service provider, has selected its Fractals Fraud Integration Hub as its 'on premises' fraud detection and prevention solution.

Fractals will be deployed as an enterprise risk management system to identify fraud risk, mitigate and prevent loss to GlobalCollect in its business as a global B2B e-commerce payment services provider. GlobalCollect will use Fractals to combat Enterprise Risk and monitor merchant credit risk.

One of GlobalCollect's key requirements was for an "on-premises" solution - data within GlobalCollect's internal systems is a critical factor in assessing transaction risk, a SaaS-based approach relying solely on external data was not workable for GlobalCollect. A true real time system was essential, enabling GlobalCollect to intercept fraudulent and risky transactions in flight, thus minimising fraud losses. And with a short delivery timescale, it was critical that the required functionality be provided within a readily available packaged solution.

According to Mike Alford, Alaric's CEO, "GlobalCollect had a demanding set of requirements - a high performance, "on-premises" enterprise risk solution, to be delivered real time-enabled within a tight 90 day timescale. Alaric's Fractals Fraud Integration Hub solution met virtually all GlobalCollect's requirements out-of-the-box, enabling us to meet their demanding delivery schedule with a tried and tested solution."

Stephen Buechner, CRO of GlobalCollect added, "We thoroughly evaluated all the leading fraud solutions and discovered that Alaric was unique in offering an "on-premises" fraud hub combined with having a high level of CNP fraud domain expertise plus a highly effective approach to project management and delivery. Proprietary data analytics is a key aspect of our competitive edge so it was critical for us to have a solution in which all fraud and risk data could be retained on-premises rather than shared with an external service provider. Another major advantage of working with Alaric is that they could deliver such a complex system, integrated for true real time operation, within a short 90 day delivery window. This was truly remarkable."

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to evolve the way the world does business; however, understanding how to apply it to your company can be a mystery.

Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
