"Adoption of High-Performance Analytics by Businesses to Mitigate Fraud"

For the past few years, frauds have become prevalent across businesses and is becoming more complicated and rampant.  In this complex landscape, fraud rules and statistical models alone are insufficient to detect fraud in real-time. Therefore, organizations are continually struggling to incorporate effective and efficient fraud detection systems to rapidly scrutinize massive amounts of data using various technologies such as grid computing, in-memory analytics, and in-database analytics. Additionally, to set up an effective fraud detection system, it has become vital to combine streaming analytics, batch analytics, and predictive analytics with domain expertise. Thus, businesses have started combining big data sources with risk profile analysis and real-time monitoring to score on fraud risk, which has led to the road of recovery and emerged as one of the top fraud detection and prevention market trends.

"Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI)-Based Fraud Detection in Banking Sector to Fuel the Market"

Nowadays, financial service organizations are suffering from fraud-related losses and damages. Therefore, financial institutions are shifting their focus from rule-based fraud detection systems to ML-based fraud detection. Increasing accuracy of machine learning provides financial firms with a significant reduction in the number of false positives and false negatives. The need for security in the banking sector has encouraged numerous AI firms to develop AI-based solutions. Teradata, a provider analytics-related software, products, and services, is selling fraud detection solutions to banks to enhance banking fraud detection capabilities. The company claims that its data analytics software can recognize potential fraud cases while avoiding acceptable deviations from the norm. For instance, MasterCard, one of the leading financial institutions, integrated ML and AI to track and process transaction size, location, time, device, and purchase data to protect their business, and combat fraudsters.


"Growing Preference for Electronic Transactions to Fuel Market Growth"

Recently, the volume of electronic transactions (e-transaction) has increased significantly, mainly due to the popularization of electronic commerce (e-commerce) retailers. Increasing usage of e-transaction and utilization of internet technology, in turn, has led to the number of risks to personal information and breach of security policies. Therefore, to tackle this issue, appropriate security measures need to be implemented by monitoring the possible threats during e-transactions. Organizations are coming up with well-structured detective and preventive measures that can mitigate frauds in e-transaction, thereby increasing the reliability of e-transaction systems. Some of the anti-fraud tools available are Address Verification Service (AVS), Card Verification Value (CVV), Payer authentication, and Universal Payment Identification Code (UPIC) among others. Thus, owing to the growing preference for e-transactions, it is important and necessary to develop and apply techniques that can assist in fraud detection and prevention.

"Need for Fraud Detection and Prevention Solutions in the Healthcare Sector to Drive the Market"

Frauds in the healthcare sector are perpetrated in many different ways and almost every insurance company is affected by it. False claims for medically unnecessary services like unnecessary widespread testing, ambulance transport even if patients are fully mobile and not at risk; services that were never rendered by the provider or on the individuals, and purposeful overstatement of the amount, type, or complexity of the service are the most common types of healthcare fraud. In order to combat these frauds, healthcare providers should incorporate comprehensive fraud detection solutions or follow some compliance programs to detect and prevent fraud. Most of the healthcare organizations have started deploying anti-fraud systems to quickly and efficiently detect, manage, and prevent fraud related to administration and recordkeeping, thereby accelerate the fraud detection and prevention market revenue.


"Limited Data Visibility Often Produces False Positives Outcomes"

For fraud detection and prevention tools to work effectively and efficiently, they should be able to deal with surprising and unknown fraud occurrences. Fraud detection and prevention solutions should have the ability to provide a versatile mix of features to collect and analyze the data, produce correct conclusions, take actions based on results, and finally produce a comprehensive result. Moreover, these solutions should be able to integrate with the existing ecosystem. However, not every solution in the market lives up to this standard, thereby impacting data visibility. Usually, each tool has a limited purview into data and thus limits the ability for accurate decisions. Payment processors and e-commerce companies mainly implement several checks such as Address Verification System (AVS) and Card Verification Value (CVV), which additionally block the right customers from checking out. For instance, the address verification system often blocks people who frequently travel, do not have permanent homes or are students. Thus, limited data visibility often produces false positives outcomes, which is hampering the growth of the market.
