Fraud and abuse (fake accounts, payment fraud, scams, fake reviews, account takeovers, etc.) are constant challenges for businesses. While there are many third-party solutions targeting only credit card fraud prevention, companies have to build their own systems for holistic user and transaction fraud and abuse management. These companies should not have to sacrifice their time and resources to building fraud and abuse management systems, especially when it is out of their realm of expertise. This is where Simility comes to the rescue. We give any company the same sophisticated, customized software usually reserved for large companies with big dedicated fraud departments.
