Iguazio Deployed by Payoneer to Prevent Fraud with Real-time Machine Learning27.1.2020 15:00:00 EETPress release

Iguazio, the data science platform for real time machine learning applications, today announced that Payoneer, the digital payment platform empowering businesses around the world to grow globally, has selected Iguazio’s platform to provide its 4 million customers with a safer payment experience. By deploying Iguazio, Payoneer moved from a reactive fraud detection method to proactive prevention with real-time machine learning and predictive analytics. Payoneer overcomes the challenge of detecting fraud within complex networks with sophisticated algorithms tracking multiple parameters, including account creation times and name changes. However, prior to using Iguazio, fraud was detected retroactively, enabling customers to only block users after damage had already been done. Payoneer is now able to take the same sophisticated machine learning models built offline and serve them in real-time against fresh data. This ensures immediate prevention of fraud and money laundering with predictiv
