The Equals Group has chosen the highly modular and extensible Bleckwen Fraud and Fincrime platform to deal with the ever-increasing complexity and volume of payments being processed across the Group.
Bleckwen enables businesses to detect fraud and monitor for suspicious behaviour in real-time using a combination of the latest AI techniques and advanced rules capabilities to provide the most comprehensive and scalable threat response. It does this through its open platform of interoperable components that can be used “out of the box” for immediate value or customised to the exact specification of each client.
