  • Behavior Sorted Lists use sophisticated algorithms to further distinguish normal activity from suspicious transactions, reducing false positives.
  • Consortium Data Models are unique to the Falcon Platform, the FICO data consortium incorporates data from billions of transactions, across thousands of issuers, leveraging powerful knowledge about fraud patterns to improve fraud detection.
  • FICO® Identity Resolution Engine (IRE) uses Social Network Analysis, bridging organizational and geographical siloes to connect identities and improve risk analysis.
  • FICO® Application Fraud Manager helps financial organizations to prevent fraud in new account originations, stop first- and third-party fraud and bust fraud rings.
