DALLAS and BOISE, Idaho (March 15, 2010) â€” Chase Paymentech, a leading merchant acquirer and payment processor, and Kount, a Boise, Idaho-based company that specializes in card-not-present (CNP) fraud prevention, today announced an agreement to offer a comprehensive suite of fraud detection, management and prevention tools for merchants.
Chase Paymentech processes a significant share of global CNP payments, in a wide variety of payment methods, and authorizes transactions in more than 130 currencies. Its expertise and fault tolerant infrastructure, paired with Kountâ€™s advanced fraud prevention technology, will introduce a new class of fraud management tools that will significantly improve the reliability and security of card-not-present transactions.
The ability to provide merchants with a real-time fraud score at the time of bank authorization will deliver unparalleled value. This benefit coupled with dynamic order linking, device fingerprinting, proxy piercing and other Kount capabilities will allow merchants to accurately detect and reject a significantly higher percentage of fraudulent orders, saving merchants costly chargeback fees and fines associated with fraud.
â€œThis alliance underscores our commitment to provide merchants with the tools they need to significantly improve and sustain financial performance. Our partnership with Kount offers merchants the first truly integrated fraud-monitoring tool at the point of transaction authorization. This is a significant step toward a global effort to reduce CNP fraud,â€ said Chase Paymentech president Mike Duffy.
â€œThe result of our partnership with Chase Paymentech will be a new class of tools and utilities for controlling card-not-present fraud,â€ said Kount CEO Brad Wiskirchen. â€œThe comprehensive suite of products will give merchants a new level of certainty that current and future forms of fraud can be controlled.”
