Fiserv Awarded "Best-in-Class" Rating in 2012 Anti-Money Laundering Technology Review
BROOKFIELD, Wis. --(Business Wire)--
Inc. (NASDAQ: FISV), a leading global provider of financial services
technology solutions, announced today that its Financial
Crime Risk Management (FCRM) platform has been awarded a
"Best-in-Class" rating in the Enterprise Support category in the CEB
TowerGroup 2012 Anti-Money Laundering Technology Review.
"There are two relentless forces in the anti-money laundering space: the
criminals who are launching increasingly sophisticated and far-reaching
attacks and the regulators charged with stopping them," said CEB
TowerGroup research director Andy Schmidt. "For the financial services
institutions caught in the middle, this requires a solution mature
enough to support the entire business, scalable enough to accommodate
continued transaction growth and useable enough to facilitate
streamlined workflow management."
The FCRM platform also received high marks for front-end usability and
back-end configurability. The report highlighted that CEB TowerGroup
analysts were impressed by the layout of the interface, which
facilitates streamlined workflow management.
Fisrv was also highly ranked in the Detection Tools category, where the
combination of behavioral profiling and analytics-based approaches in
combination with flexible rules to identify potential money laundering
behavior were highlighted as key strengths.
"Increasing regulatory expectations, tougher penalties for
non-compliance and country-specific and international standards are all
challenges that financial institutions are grappling with. Criminals are
finding new ways to 'pick the locks' of institutions so it is important
that institutions stay one step ahead of financial crime patterns," said
Mike Urban, director, Financial Crime Risk Management Solutions,�Fiserv.
"Our solution is a critical element of an overall financial crime
mitigation strategy - with advanced analytics, flexible case management
tools and multi-channel capabilities it can be used to combat anti-money
laundering as well as an enterprise solution against fraud and other
