Fraud detection and prevention (FDP) solutions have thus become more important in the current scenario than it has ever been. Traditional methods of fraud detection have been replaced by sophisticated techniques involving statistical modelling and simulation, machine learning and data mining techniques. Emergence of e-banking and e-commerce, high adoption of IP-Based services, growth in online transactions and increasing revenue losses due to fraudulent activities are some of the factors augmenting the demand for fraud detection and prevention solutions across the globe.

According to a 2017 report by Orbis Research, online fraud is now the “the fastest emerging threats to all types of organizations” as the rise of the internet and its associated information delivery technologies have exposed almost every financial sector to the “threat of organized and automated crimes.”
