Kount Announces Payment Processor Fraud Prevention

Fraud and risk management technology leader Kount announced the launch of Kount Central to combat fraud at the payment processor level. Kount Central is designed to integrate with online payment processors such as acquirers, payment service providers, hosted pay pages and payment gateways, enabling each to help all their merchants reduce the negative effects of fraud. As breaches become more widespread, payment processors increasingly face the challenge of providing a trusted, integrated fraud solution to merchants that reduces fraudulent transactions, while mitigating fines and penalties from regulators. As new technologies are rolled out for point-of-sale terminals at brick-and-mortar retailers, it is highly likely that cyber criminals will move online, making the challenge of a fraud-free payment process even more pronounced.
