Accertify Partners With Ryanair To Provide Fraud Management


London, 3 December 2014 - Accertify, a leading fraud prevention provider, announced today that the company is providing Ryanair with its comprehensive and flexible fraud management solution.  Accertify, an American Express company, is providing fraud management for the website, which attracts over 1.2m unique daily visitors.

Accertify supports fraud reduction efforts of leading companies around the world. Its hosted software platform allows merchants to screen e-commerce purchases, lowering risks and maximising good customer transactions to minimise the business costs of fraud.

“Ryanair is a leading European airline and we are delighted to be working with them” said Lorenzo Soriano, President of Accertify.  “We understand the needs of businesses like Ryanair and our platform is built to make their fraud prevention efforts more reliable and easier to manage. Accertify allows companies to manage fraud more efficiently, enabling them to focus on what matters most to them –successfully running their business.”

Through the Interceptas® Data Management Platform and Accertify® Profile Builder solution, Accertify has the unique capability to mimic many of the checks that were previously conducted in manual transaction reviews.

“Over 1.2m unique visitors log on to every day and our partnership with Accertify will further improve the online payment process for our 89m customers,” Ryanair’s Head of Communications, Robin Kiely said. “We are continuing to roll out a programme of customer service improvements, as part of our ‘Always Getting Better’ plan and our new website has reduced the amount of clicks it takes to make a booking from 17 to just 5, ensuring faster access to the lowest fares.”
