ITASCA, IL, Feb 25, 2021 – Accertify, Inc., a leading provider of fraud solutions for merchants, airlines and financial institutions, has been selected as a winner in the virtual MPE 2021 Awards ceremony. Accertify won the Best Identity / Authentication Solution award for its Digital Identity technology.

The MPE 2021 Awards were part of the 14th annual MPE 2021 conference held virtually (February 22-25), attended by 750+ conference participants represented by global merchants and senior level payment industry professionals. The MPE Awards have, over the last 12 years, become an important benchmark of global excellence in card acquiring, POS and merchant payments. Constantly reflecting market changes, the MPE Awards recognized the best in 14 categories, with the addition of three new categories to keep up with current trends, amongst which was Best Identity / Authentication Solution.

“As a testimony to the resilience of our industry, this year, we’ve had the highest number of nominations on record with over 180 entries. The jury has awarded Accertify and its Digital Identity (ADI) product with the Best Identity/Authentication solution. The solution addresses the growing risk of account takeovers and has demonstrated since its inception 12 months ago that this scalable solution is highly reliable and effective in producing response times to target fraudsters.”, said Neira Jones, the Chairman of MPE 2021 Awards Judging Panel.

Accertify’s Digital Identity solution safeguards merchants and end consumers from a growing fraud trend: Account Takeover Attacks. The complexity of these attacks demonstrated the need for an end-to-end solution to help merchants tackle this problem.  In February 2020, Accertify launched Accertify Digital Identity (ADI).  ADI analyses billions of data points using machine learning, behavioral analytics and device intelligence technology to calculate a trust score for account activity in near real-time to help prevent fraud loss. This solution leverages the power of the Accertify network to identify trusted attributes so organizations can confidently confirm new accounts, while also mitigating or flagging potential risks.

“We are extremely honored to be selected as a winner in the MPE annual awards and are proud of our Digital Identity technology and the value we deliver to our customers,” said Mark Michelon, President, Accertify.  “The ADI solution is built on a reliable, readily available, and scalable distributed framework that can currently scale up to 100 billion events per year. Our solution has been proven to be effective from small businesses up to Fortune/FTSE 100 companies.”
