Elavon, a payments firm owned by U.S. Bancorp, has teamed up with Featurespace to prevent fraud in online payments.

The move is aimed at meeting the norms of PSD2, which requires processors, merchants, and banks to boost the security of online payments.

Featurespace CEO Martina King said: “1.3 million customers worldwide rely on Elavon to safeguard their businesses. Working together means we will be staying one step ahead of criminals at all times.”

The partnership integrates Elavon’s 3DS service with Featurespace’s ARIC platform.

Leveraging machine learning transaction monitoring, ARIC develops real-time behavioural profiles for cardholders and merchants.

In order to combat fraud, Elavon intends to utilise the adaptive behavioural analytics.
