JERSEY CITY, N.J., Oct. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ACH Alert and Fundtech today announce a partnership to make available ACH Alert's suite of innovative, patented fraud mitigation solutions via Fundtech products.
ACH Alert's suite of fraud mitigation solutions enhance Fundtech's offerings with industry-leading capabilities that allow financial institutions to mitigate incoming ACH fraud and outgoing ACH and wire fraud for their customers. By providing these solutions, Fundtech enables financial institutions to comply with FFIEC guidance calling for layered security, with different controls at various points in a transaction process. Further, financial institutions are able to monetize these services, by selling to their customers and members. ACH Alert's fraud mitigation tools will be available to customers of the following Fundtech solutions:
- CASHplus: access to ACH Alert's PRO-TECH solution to detect unauthorized ACH debits, and C.O.P.S. to prevent corporate account takeover by validating credit transactions
- PAYplus USA and PAYplus Connect/GFX: to access BIO-WIRE to validate outgoing wire transactions to prevent corporate account takeover
- ACHplus: access to PRO-TECH to detect unauthorized ACH credits, C.O.P.S. to prevent corporate account takeover by validating credit transactions, and ACH Dispute Xpress to securely transmit credentials to non-subscribing account holders to grant access to an electronic, pre-populated Written Statement of Unauthorized ACH Debit (or WSUD)
- OrigiNET: access to C.O.P.S. to prevent corporate account takeover by validating credit transactions
"FFIEC guidance is clear that financial institutions are responsible for developing processes to detect suspicious fund transfer activity," says Deborah Peace, AAP, Chief Executive Officer, ACH Alert.
