A deeper level of protection

Vodafone Mobile Enhanced Authentication offers a deeper level of risk scoring to verify transactions. It enhances the way you verify all your domestic and cross-border transactions for both card present (CP) and card not present (CNP) transactions. It enables you to effectively manage fraud, while substantially reducing the number of cards blocked unnecessarily (false positives) so delivering an improved user experience to your cardholders.

Our service uses location data, which is a hugely valuable indicator of risk. If the customer’s phone and their card are in close proximity during a transaction, it is probably genuine and this information can help you substantially reduce false negatives and false positives.

Works with your systems

Vodafone Mobile Enhanced Authentication works seamlessly with current fraud-management systems. It covers subscribers of all mobile network operators and, through the use of advanced mobile Analytics, can enhance your risk scoring even if the customer has left their phone at home.

Vodafone Mobile Enhanced Authentication can make a meaningful and significant impact on the day-to-day operations of financial institutions, reducing risk and improving security, privacy and data protection.
