Superior Transaction Monitoring

An effective Transaction Monitoring system is the centerpiece of a successful anti-money laundering (AML) compliance program.

Transparency into the history of a transaction’s funds and users, and the ability to receive notifications of suspicious transactions is critical for regulatory compliance, following your internal policies and procedures, and preventing criminals from using your institution to launder illicit funds.

However, we know that companies have to contend with high cost compliance operations, often due to outdated, brittle compliance systems that cause drag on their potential success.  Transaction Monitoring can be very daunting in institutions of any size.  Manual processes consume valuable time and resources that would be better used on true transaction escalations.  Plus, manual systems don’t provide analysis with enough information — the full transaction history of a user, whether any transactions are linked to any known bad actors or institutions, or a holistic view of the users risk profile — for accurate risk assessment and decision making. 

IdentityMind’s Transaction Monitoring solution is designed to provide Financial Institutions and FinTechs serving Marketplaces, P2P, and Virtual Currency with the industry’s most insightful, accurate and efficient AML compliance results. It features a unique user-centric risk-based approach favored by regulators. Its dynamic modeling, adaptive framework, and contextual identity analysis will help you supercharge your compliance efforts.

Benefits

Risk-based Approach

Improves Productivity

Alerts are a great way to stay on top of things. However, too many alerts spin your wheels and hurt productivity. This is the case if you treat all transaction alerts the same way. Our platform allows you the ability to risk rate alerts so that you can address them based on criticality of the transaction for efficient escalations. IdentityMind takes a risk-based approach that allows you to apply more hurdles to potentially suspicious transaction users while showing trusted users the fast lane. The result is fewer alerts where you don’t need them, the right amount where you do need them, and less time spent working alerts.

Dynamic Modeling for Increased

Accurate Risk Assessments  

IdentityMind takes a continuous approach beyond the initial KYC event. This approach recognizes that a user’s risk profile changes over time.

As you interact more with your users, the IdentityMind platform captures additional and updated attributes, conducts additional analysis, and ultimately updates customer risk profiles accordingly. This allows for dynamic real-time risk assessments for quick and efficient analyst review.  

Contextual Analysis Provides

Greater Accuracy

IdentityMind’s patented eDNA™ assembles a digital identity from an individual’s attributes (eg. name, address, device, phone, email, account information, bank information, social networks). It analyzes each digital identity to provide a continual assessment of whether they should be trusted or not. As part of this analysis, the IdentityMind platform compares identities with similar identities, evaluates the risk of the identity’s country of origin, and considers situation and environment. Because the platform is able to consolidate a broad range of attributes and weave them together into a consistent model, the result is more accurate risk assessments.

User-Centric Customization for

Greater Efficiency

In-house custom solutions focus resources on building and maintaining, instead of compliance, and often fall short on helping analyst arrive at insights for fast efficient decision making. Our user-friendly standards-based platform is highly customizable and configurable, allowing you to focus on the areas of growth for your business success. Transaction rules set and risk thresholds are easily configured, and our alerts and streamlined case management system allow analysts to accurately and efficiently review  all the pertinent information associated with each transaction all at your fingertips.
