FSS, a global payments technology company, has launched FSS Secure3D, its new-generation adaptive authentication solution based on the EMVCo 3DS 2.0 protocol
FSS Secure3D extends a frictionless approach to authenticate cardholders and to safeguard customers against fraud. The solution deploys advanced machine learning algorithms to learn customer transaction behavior to detect anomalous transactions and continually adjust risk controls in line with evolving fraud patterns. Issuers can use a combination of variables including merchant, cardholder, device, location and transaction related parameters to risk score each transaction and determine if a legitimate cardholder initiated it. Issuers and merchants benefit in terms of improved customer experience, reduced false positives and lowered incidence of fraud.

For suspect transactions, FSS Secure3D supports a range of stepped-up verification measures including out-of-band authentication such as one-time passcodes, as well as biometrics including facial and fingerprint recognition. This offers flexibility to issuers to extend the authentication process to emerging transaction touch points including wearable’s and IOT devices.
FSS Secure3D examines 150+ data elements exchanged between the merchant and the issuer to authenticate cardholders in the background. This includes spend value, volume and velocity, shopping patterns such as frequently visited stores, transaction time and location and device IP to baseline behavioral profiles and detect suspicious changes that can be a powerful indicator of illicit activity.
Suresh Rajagopalan, President Retail Payments, FSS, stated, “Secure and seamless transaction journeys are a strategic differentiator for new-age commerce. FSS Secure3D improves risk-based decisioning capabilities and enables issuers find the sweet spot between strengthening anti-fraud measures and delivering frictionless transaction experiences. The fact that FSS is among the first few service providers globally to achieve EMVCo certification reflects our product leadership position.”
