NICE Actimize's Card Fraud Solution Used by Thailand's National ITMX, a Leading Interbank Payment Provider, to Detect Fraud

The Actimize Card Fraud Solution in production will be monitoring 70 million ATM/debit card transactions a month for the provider's 21 member banks

NEW YORK, January 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

NICE Actimize, a NICE Systems (NASDAQ:NICE) business and the largest and broadest provider of a single financial crime, risk and compliance software platform for the financial services industry, announced today that the Actimize Card Fraud Solution has been successfully implemented by National ITMX, Thailand's interbank payment provider, providing real-time fraud detection for its 21 member banks. The implementation, fully completed in less than six months, detects fraud in ATM/debit card transactions and will be monitoring a total of nearly 70 million transactions per month.

The Actimize Card Fraud solution, which is part of the Actimize Integrated Fraud Management solutions suite, is being used by ITMX as part of its card fraud monitoring and detection system (CFMD) to monitor transactions in real time, protect its members from fraudulent transactions, and ensure consistent coverage across its member institutions while reducing financial losses and operational costs. In response to the strategic roadmap developed by the Bank of Thailand, National ITMX developed its proprietary framework - the ITMX System - to bring Thailand's electronic commerce and payment system up to international best practices and standards. Partnering with Stream I.T. Consulting Ltd. in Thailand, NICE Actimize licensed the Actimize Card Fraud solution to National ITMX earlier this year.

"Our business direction is to serve the country's strategic payment roadmap as initiated by the Bank of Thailand and, as such, it is our duty to ensure that our system is continually improving to cater to the needs of our members in the areas of new service development and customer satisfaction in terms of efficiency and added-value," said Wanna Noparbhorn, Managing Director at National ITMX.

She added, "We selected NICE Actimize's card fraud solution because we realized that we needed to add additional layers of security for our member institutions, as well as create greater awareness regarding fraud. Not only has our relationship with NICE Actimize and its partner, Stream I.T., been positive, but we can now offer a unique service to our members. It has been extremely beneficial to us to implement the NICE Actimize solution, as we have been able to know and understand our customers better, and the outcome has been rewarding."

"Our deep experience in helping financial institutions develop and execute unique and adaptable enterprise fraud mitigation strategies has enabled us to address National ITMX's challenges and offer a comprehensive solution to combat fraud for its member institutions that they can adapt and add to over time with additional capabilities," said Amir Orad, President and CEO of NICE Actimize. "The depth of our expertise, and breadth and flexibility of our card fraud detection technology, will enable the cardholders covered by Thailand's system to be protected and is expected to promote adoption of electronic payments in this fast-growing economy."

"At Stream, we worked closely with National ITMX and NICE Actimize to deliver rapid deployment of the Actimize Card Fraud solution," said Vichu Charuchandr, Managing Director at Stream I.T. Consulting Ltd. "In less than six months, we commenced real-time detection streaming through the CFMD System. The system is now live, servicing all 21 member banks operating in Thailand."

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity? Organizations of all sizes need to evolve and transform, often under massive pressure, as industry lines blur and merge and traditional business models are assaulted and turned upside down. In this new data-driven world, marketplaces reign supreme while interoperability, APIs and applications deliver un...
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, will show how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants will get the download information, scripts, and complete end-to-end walkthrough of the analysis from start to finish. Participants will also be given the pract...
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, along with new ways to engage with users.
Internet of Things (IoT) will be a hybrid ecosystem of diverse devices and sensors collaborating with operational and enterprise systems to create the next big application. In their session at @ThingsExpo, Bramh Gupta, founder and CEO of, and Fred Yatzeck, principal architect leading product development at, discussed how choosing the right middleware and integration strategy from the get-go will enable IoT solution developers to adapt and grow with the industry, while at the same time reduce Time to Market (TTM) by using plug and play capabilities offered by a robust IoT ...
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT.
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at different existing uses of peer-to-peer data sharing and how it can become useful in a live session to...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
The broad selection of hardware, the rapid evolution of operating systems and the time-to-market for mobile apps has been so rapid that new challenges for developers and engineers arise every day. Security, testing, hosting, and other metrics have to be considered through the process. In his session at Big Data Expo, Walter Maguire, Chief Field Technologist, HP Big Data Group, at Hewlett-Packard, will discuss the challenges faced by developers and a composite Big Data applications builder, focusing on how to help solve the problems that developers are continuously battling.
