Accertify Celebrates Its 10th Anniversary



Accertify, an American Express company, Has Prevented Billions of Dollars in Fraudulent Transactions

ITASCA, Ill.April 18, 2018 – Accertify, Inc., a leading provider of fraud prevention and dispute management solutions, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.  The company recorded its first transaction on February 1, 2008.  Since then, Accertify has helped merchants prevent billions of dollars in fraudulent transactions for its more than 200 customers, and has grown to more than 400 employees in seven countries around the world.  Accertify was acquired by American Express in 2010, and has operated as a wholly owned subsidiary of the company since then. 

Accertify protects businesses globally, including eCommerce merchants, airlines, hotels, financial institutions and payment providers.  It is one of the most trusted names in the industry, protecting some of the largest global brands. The firm’s first three customers – including Ticketmaster and Southwest Airlines — are still customers today.

“Very few companies were focused on preventing online fraud in 2008, and we met a critical need at a watershed moment in the nascent eCommerce market.  Our acquisition by American Express allowed us to grow and scale our business, provide new product offerings and expand into global markets. We are proud pioneers in the fraud prevention industry, and will continue to help our customers maximize their sales, minimize losses and protect their brands,” said Mark Michelon, president, Accertify.

Accertify is known for its deep expertise, scalability and understanding of the latest techniques and fraud risks to best serve its clients.  The company’s Interceptas Case Management Platform enables clients to screen transactions over any of the major payment networks, including American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and PayPal.
