Accertify Is Selected for Visionaries Quadrant in Leading Analyst Firm's Web Fraud Detection Study


CHICAGO, IL – Feb. 18, 2010

 Accertify, a leading provider of transaction screening solutions, today announced that Gartner Inc. has named the company a Visionary in its new Magic Quadrant for Web Fraud Detection Report.

Accertify's positioning in the Visionaries quadrant is based on its completeness of vision and ability to execute.

"Enterprises should match their requirements to the unique set of differentiating technology that a vendor offers, and should align the vendor's vision for growth and product development with the enterprise's own expectations of future requirements," says Gartner analyst Avivah Litan in her Jan. 26 report. "Users must also look for vendors that devote sufficient company resources and attention to these applications; or else they will suffer from poor customer service and stagnant technology. Niche player and visionary vendors in this Magic Quadrant will often be the best choice, especially when it comes to customer service."

According to the report, "E-commerce companies, such as online retailers, are updating their Web Fraud Detection capabilities as they seek to improve on vendor-supplied or homegrown solutions."

Accertify's Interceptas software platform is proven effective in reducing risks associated with any transaction type through multiple channels. Interceptas supports detection of fraud, scams and policy abuse for payments, new accounts, existing account activities and other transactions that occur across the enterprise via web, call center, point of sale and mobile channels.

"We consider our positioning in the Visionaries quadrant by Gartner a confirmation of Accertify's comprehensive offering, innovative approach and commitment to customer service. Accertify is setting the industry standard for customer-focused solutions that dramatically reduce fraud and scams across the enterprise. Our solutions reduce the complexity and labor involved in fraud prevention and improve the customer experience through multiple channels," said Jeff Liesendahl, CEO of Accertify.

"While our rapidly growing client base includes industry-leading ecommerce brands in each vertical we serve, our goal is to continue to lead the market with new product innovation," Liesendahl said.
