    • Strengthen KYC and CDD

      Location is an important component of knowing your customer. “Spoof-proof” and accurate geolocation data (beyond simple IP address) ensure that KYC and CDD are robust and protected from exploitation.

    • Fraud Prevention and Risk Mitigation

      Real-time historic analysis of geolocation transactions strengthens risk management by creating a holistic oversight of user behavior. Suspicious or fraudulent activity, such as account takeover, can be prevented in real-time and identified over time.

    • Reporting and Traceability

      All geolocation transactions are managed in a secure database and archive creating audit trail transparency and traceability. This strengthens reporting capabilities of FIs for regulators and law enforcement.

    • Sanctions Compliance

      Compliance-grade geofencing capabilities add extensive location assurance through the collection of multiple sources, and unaltered geolocation data strenthens sanctions compliance. IP-based solutions do not constitute location due dilligence.

    • Karen Boyer, VP, Financial Crimes and Fraud Intelligence, People’s United Bank

      With the AML reform, which focuses on innovation, I’m hoping that the standard of authentication has risen away from IP. I think that’s a bit archaic. Authentication needs to start getting into geo-fencing and geo-data: the actual location of the devices.
