Product Overview

SMASH® is an Anti-Fraud framework based on a widespread model of Transaction Monitoring. It “learns to recognize” users of online payment services and their usual behaviour thanks to Closed Algorithms, able to analyze and to correlate more than one hundred parameters.  This information is then correlated and matched with behaviours of users themselves, determining in real time the risk factor of every transaction.

The evolution of SMASH® is based on the growing needs of EFM’s (Enterprise Fraud Management) solution, in order to provide a unique framework able to manage Anti-Fraud processes across different channels.
