Merchant Monitoring: Leveraging Technology to Reduce Risk for Both Merchants and Merchant Acquirers

As merchant acquirers expand into new markets, a robust, analytic-driven risk monitoring solution is needed to protect against myriad risk vectors.

Executive Brief

The combination of commerce digitization, increased demand for new payment solutions and continually shifting regulations is both increasing diversity in the merchant acquiring industry and adding complexity to managing risk within merchant acquirers’ portfolios. Expanding into new markets to meet growth targets inherently raises risk profiles, increasing merchant acquirers’ due diligence requirements along the way. To manage this, market leaders have implemented robust, scalable analytics-driven solutions to configure decision rules and streamline workflows to deliver cost-effective, automated risk monitoring programs.
