Instant Payments

Leverage the power of consortium data and analytics to prevent losses in real-time.

Preventing real-time payments fraud requires innovative strategies

Nasdaq Verafin’s Instant Payments Fraud solutions combine behavioral analytics with consortium insights for robust fraud prevention solutions. Our unique approach uses a consortium data set derived from 2500 financial institutions and 575 million profiled accounts, to enable comprehensive insight into payment risk — providing individual institutions with the collective power of the Nasdaq Verafin network, without sharing Personally Identifiable Information (PII). 

Supporting real-time fraud detection for out-going TCH RTP and FedNow payments

A new collaboration between Nasdaq Verafin and JHA PayCenter™ will provide support for real-time fraud detection on both TCH RTP and FedNow services for out-going payments. This means faster, more secure transactions for our customers and efficiency in providing seamless real-time payments.

"Combining the benefits of cross-channel behavior-based analytics and insights on recipients from its consortium of financial institutions, Verafin’s Payments Fraud solution offers institutions a complete picture of risk."
