Decision Manager: Device Fingerprint Attributes Now Available for Profile Selection

Decision Manager: Device Fingerprint Mobile Statistical Models

Four new statistical risk models that focus on transactions originating from mobile devices have been added. For details, see the Business Center online help and the Decision Manager User Guide in the Documentation section of the Business Center.

Payer Authentication: Rules-Based Payer Authentication Now Available

Rules-based Payer Authentication enables you to specify a set of rules that define how transactions are authenticated by a 3-D Secure card authentication program. For example, you can decide to turn off active authentication for transactions that would otherwise require customer interaction to avoid degrading the customer experience. However, you may decide to authenticate customers from card-issuing banks that use risk-based authentication because the authentication is performed silently without customer interaction. For details, see Payer Authentication Using the Simple Order API or Payer Authentication Using the SCMP API.

Barclays, HBoS, LloydsTSB Cardnet, and Streamline: Debt Payments for Recipients

When a cardholder uses this feature, you must include information about the recipient in the authorization request. For details, see Credit Card Services Using the Simple Order API or Credit Card Services Using the SCMP API.
