VoltDB Unveils Real-time Predictive Fraud Detection & Prevention

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

VoltDB, the enterprise-class database that powers mission-critical applications, introduced the industry’s first database to enable real-time predictive fraud detection and prevention. With User Defined Function (UDF) support for SQL, VoltDB v7.6 enables enterprises to accelerate the identification and prevention of fraud before a transaction is complete, drastically reducing risk and enhancing the customer’s overall brand experience.

With advancing technologies, increased complexity and the growing popularity of e-commerce platforms, the risk of fraud has escalated dramatically. Despite this increased risk, most solutions in today’s market aim to detect fraud after it occurs, which can cost financial organizations millions of dollars annually. In fact, a Nilson Report estimates that losses due to credit card fraud alone could top $27.69 billion in 2017, worldwide.

As criminals become more advanced, fraudulent behavior patterns change more quickly, up to multiple times a day, which is why most applications identify fraudulent activity after a transaction is processed. With UDF, VoltDB now enables financial organizations to deploy new fraud prevention algorithms immediately into the data stream, improving the accuracy, intelligence and effectiveness of fraud detection logic. User Defined Functions within the VoltDB data platform can be updated more quickly and frequently, removing latency when defining fraudulent transactions.

The only way to negate the impact of fraud is to catch it before a transaction is processed,” said David Flower, president and CEO of VoltDB. “With User Defined Function, VoltDB is empowering financial organizations across the globe to move to real-time fraud detection with absolutely no latency. By constantly updating fraud logic and deploying it directly into the VoltDB data platform, organizations can become smarter in how they identify and stop fraud, accepting only genuine transactions and stopping fraudulent ones before they happen.”

VoltDB v7.6 enables organizations to use User Defined Functions on Apache Kafka data streams, helping accelerate the impact of new fraud detection algorithms. VoltDB powers fraud detection solutions at leading financial institutions across the globe.
