Issuers need to balance eCommerce payment transaction security and a smooth customer checkout experience. The crux of the matter is how to provide a seamless checkout experience for legitimate customers so they won’t abandon their transaction or use a different form of payment while at the same time stopping illegitimate attempts to transact. The use of behavior-based authentication to determine which transactions should be impacted by requiring the customer to go through additional means of authentication is critical for reducing customer friction while creating better assurance that the transaction is legitimate. Rules are an important component when providing this risk- and behavior-based authentication. When models are added, and used to guide the application of risk-based rules, the impact upon illegitimate authentication attempts can be greatly increased while the impact on legitimate customers is decreased, providing a better experience for the cardholder and loss reduction for

Our client offered electronic money transfer services. For years they had provided the digital links and the networks of agents that enabled people to send money quickly and easily around the world.

Also, other technologies such as virtual money transfer via blockchain were being more widely adopted. In addition, industry mergers strengthened competitors, while increased protectionism began to reduce the number of migrant workers - the core customers of our client.
The digital world was looking like a difficult place to operate in.

Validating the completeness and accuracy of sales (and related balance sheet impact) is of paramount importance, but often requires significant manual effort. As revenues grow, organizations are forced to devote additional resources to processes like sales audit and other detailed reconciliations or expose themselves to risk.
For the retail industry, having an adequate sales audit process is crucial to the integrity of financial statements. And innovations like new forms of consumer payments and omni-channel models only add to the complexity.
Trupanion, a Seattle-based medical insurance provider for cats and dogs, needed to find data insights quickly.

There will be a ransomware attack on businesses every 14 seconds by the end of 2019 . Every 40 seconds, one of those attacks will prove successful , with devastating effects ranging from permanent loss of irreplaceable data to life-threatening interruptions to patient care. In years past, expert malware authors packaged up their know-how into costly exploit kits sold on the underground market. Cyber criminals had to recover high upfront costs before launching a campaign and realizing a profit. Today, ransomware-as a-service groups like Satan make it easier than ever before for would-be cyber criminals with minimal technical skills to launch attacks, offering free ransomware toolkits and hands-on help to manage campaigns and extort payments. Read our white paper to learn how CylancePROTECT® prevents Petya, Goldeneye, WannaCry, Satan, and many more from executing, with machine learning models dating back to September 2015, long before the ransomware first appeared in the wild.

Life science companies are experiencing a significant transformation in how they bring new products to market.
Organizations must adapt to changes in the marketplace, such as global product commercialization, specialized medicine, new regulations, new payment models, and new technology that are driving more product variety, smaller drug volumes, and shorter product life cycles.
To meet the needs of this new commercial model, life science companies must re-envision the global supply chain and evolve the tools they use to run their business. The supply chain that was designed for launching blockbuster products will not work in the future.
Today, the global supply chain relies on a manual, paper-based process centered on printing documents and sending them via overnight mail, fax, or e-mail with scanned attachments. This time-consuming and costly process is errorprone, tedious for customers and team members, and vulnerable to security and compliance risks.
