Advance Fraud Detection Suite (AFDS) includes multiple filters and tools that work together to evaluate transactions for indicators of fraud. Their combined logic provides a powerful and highly effective defense against fraudulent transactions.
In addition to the filters listed below, Authorize.Net also offers a new Daily Velocity Filter at no charge. The Daily Velocity Filter allows you to specify a threshold for the number of transactions allowed per day, a useful tactic to identify high-volume fraud attacks.
Set lower and upper transaction amount thresholds to restrict high-risk transactions often used to test the validity of credit card numbers.
Hourly Velocity Filter
Limit the total number of transactions received per hour, preventing high-volume attacks common with fraudulent transactions.
Shipping-Billing Mismatch Filter
Identify high-risk transactions with different shipping and billing addresses, potentially indicating purchases made using a stolen credit card.
Transaction IP Velocity Filter
Isolate suspicious activity from a single source by identifying excessive transactions received from the same IP address.
Suspicious Transaction Filter
Reviews highly suspicious transactions using proprietary criteria identified by Authorize.Net's dedicated Fraud Management Team.
Authorized AIM IP Addresses
Allows merchant submitting Advanced Integration Method (AIM) transactions to designate specific server IP addresses that are authorized to submit transactions.
IP Address Blocking
Block transactions from IP addresses known to be used for fraudulent activity.
Enhanced AVS Handling Filter
The Address Verification Service (AVS) is a standard feature of the payment gateway that compares the address submitted with an order to the address on file with the customer's credit card issuer. Merchants can then choose to reject or allow transactions based on the AVS response codes. AFDS includes a new AVS filter that assists the decision process by allowing merchants the additional options of flagging AVS transactions for monitoring purposes, or holding them for manual review.
Enhanced CCV Handling Filter
Like AVS, Card Code Verification (CCV) is a standard feature of the payment gateway. CCV uses a card's three- or four-digit number to validate customer information on file with the credit card association. Like the AVS Filter, the CCV Filter allows merchants the additional options of flagging CCV transactions for monitoring purposes, or holding them for manual review.
Shipping Address Verification Filter
Verifies that the shipping address received with an order is a valid postal address.
IP Shipping Address Mismatch Filter
Compare the shipping address provided with an order to the IP address of where the order originated from. This helps to determine whether or not the order is shipping to the country from which it originated.
Regional IP Address Filter
Flag orders coming from specific regions or countries. You can choose to customize the filter actions based on an entire geographic area, or select country by country how to process transactions flagged by the filter.
