Equifax and iovation Sign Distribution Agreement for Central America Region
(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/30/14 --
Equifax, the information, credit risk, analytics and decision solutions leader, has signed an agreement with iovation, the trusted source for mobile and online fraud prevention, to distribute iovation products in Central America.
With this strategic partnership, Equifax expands its value-added solution portfolio and iovation strengthens its operations through a local partner, providing customers with a leading-edge solution for fraud prevention.
According to recent research, fraud in Latin America exceeds $430 million each year (a $234 million annual increase). Banks lose an average of $50 million per year from theft, and an additional $50 million from illegal activities such as phishing.
This trend is especially worrisome considering the added fraud exposure associated with the rise in use of mobile devices such as smart phones, iPads and other tablets in electronic commerce and mobile banking.
For these reasons, Equifax continues its innovation by signing this important agreement with iovation to provide a top-level solution, protecting electronic channels against fraud loss, improving profitability and enhancing the consumer's experience.
