Veritas in Production on Trial Basis - December 2017
Synectics has installed Veritas, the Machine Learning module of the SafeGuard Anti-Fraud Suite, on a trial basis at a Greek Systemic Bank. Veritas uses the latest machine-learning technology in order to assess the risk level of a transaction thus supporting fraud analysts in making quicker and more targeted decisions. Veritas works on top of SafeGuard’s well-established and long-time proven rule-engine and, therefore, supplements a bank’s expert knowledge with cutting-edge artificial intelligence algorithms. In its decision process, Veritas employs traditional fraud indicators that are used by seasoned fraud experts worldwide, but also relies on new, more complex fraud signals, that were empirically tested and found to perform exceptionally well in real-life fraud environments. The comprehensive set of fraud indicators and continuous retraining on a bank’s own data ensure that Veritas remains always up-to-date with respect to new and emerging fraud patterns, establishing Veritas as an invaluable tool in every bank’s anti-fraud arsenal.
