When you’re assessing new software and systems for your business, there are a few big questions you need to ask yourself: Does this product suit both my business needs and our internal capabilities? Can it adapt with me as my business grows and evolves? Does it seamlessly integrate with other essential systems my business needs?

Why all businesses need a fraud prevention solution

Traditionally, fraud prevention solutions were costly, cumbersome, and mainly aimed at big businesses that had the capacity and the resources to implement and support enterprise-level software. It was assumed that these types of business were the sole targets of hackers and fraudsters, that they were the only ones who could afford and needed fraud protection. But as eCommerce becomes more commonplace, and businesses in general are becoming more digitized, there are increasingly more fraudsters who are looking at small- to medium-sized businesses as attractive targets.

Our flexible fraud and risk management solutions can streamline fraud operations with customizable rules, insights and risk scores that enable you to build a fraud management strategy tailored to your business strategy and customer needs. And because you’ve got your eCommerce payment gateway and digital invoicing all under the same roof, your transactions couldn’t be any more secure.

Enterprise solutions

Enterprise businesses may hire a specialized team to manage the fraud prevention and response strategies online business. Cybersource’s Decision Manager was born from the need to optimize and enhance that workflow–to supercharge and optimize your in-house fraud team whilst retaining full control.
