Frost & Sullivan Recommends 3 Key Elements for Effective Fraud Prevention

The report’s market overview determines that the U.S. eCommerce fraud prevention market is on a growth trajectory: eCommerce sales are expected to generate more than $700 billion in the country by 2023. However, the online environment is the primary channel for fraud, since it is easy to exploit card-not-present payments.

  1. Real-time fraud prevention tools are critical. The effectiveness of an eCommerce fraud prevention solution depends on the variety and volume of available customer data.
  2. Fraud prevention tools help digital retailers deliver personalized, intelligent customer experiences that ensure loyalty and boost revenue. The report concludes that advanced business intelligence tools and capabilities will remain a primary product evolution focus of the leading fraud prevention solution providers.
