ProPay and InfoTrax Team Up to Help Direct Selling Companies Fight Fraud
Release date: 3/30/2016
ProPay’s Guardian CyberShield helps companies significantly reduce fraudulent transactions
LEHI, Utah, and COLUMBUS, Ga., March 30, 2016 — ProPayâ, a TSYSâ company, and InfoTrax today announced they have teamed up to help Direct Selling companies battle fraudsters. InfoTrax has integrated its DataTrax back-office software for Direct Selling companies to ProPay’s Guardian CyberShield* fraud detection and protection service. Guardian CyberShield offers a comprehensive layered payment fraud solution that can help stop fraudulent transactions while facilitating efficient acceptance of legitimate ones — enabling companies to reduce their chargeback costs while increasing revenue.
Guardian CyberShield is a cloud-based, real-time identity verification tool that helps validate returning customers and prospects, while protecting a wide range of transactions including account creation, login authentication and payment authorization. It offers the broadest combination of payment fraud defenses available — in a system that has low impact on IT resources. Guardian CyberShield provides market-leading protection for Web transactions against account takeover, payment fraud, identity spoofing, malware and data breaches.
According to PYMNTS.com, from 2014 to 2015 fraud attacks were up 163 percent. Fraud is big business, and fraudsters are increasingly sophisticated professionals using more complex tools to try and score big at the merchant’s expense.
“We are seeing bands of sophisticated criminals targeting Direct Selling companies,” said Mark Rawlins, chief executive officer of InfoTrax. “Understanding how these groups work and helping our clients avoid these pitfalls have always been a part of InfoTrax’s commitment as a software provider. Working with ProPay to have this directly integrated with our enterprise solution creates one more layer of protection embedded in our service.”
“We’re pleased to team up with InfoTrax to begin offering Direct Selling companies more sophisticated fraud prevention and detection tools,” said Dave Duncan, president of ProPay. “ProPay Guardian CyberShield, is just another example of our desire to provide a suite of payment solutions that allows our customers to focus on running their businesses while protecting them against fraud.”
