Actimize, a NICE Company Positioned in Leaders Quadrant of Magic Quadrant for Web Fraud Detection


Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

NEW YORK - Actimize, a NICE Systems (NASDAQ:NICE) company and the largest and broadest provider of a single financial crime, risk and compliance software platform for the financial services industry, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the leaders quadrant in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Web Fraud Detection report.

“Fraudsters continued to step up their attacks against institutions with lucrative customer accounts,” says author and Distinguished Gartner Analyst Avivah Litan. “Organizations with high-risk applications and sensitive customer data must look for vendors and technology that can fend off increasingly sophisticated and unpredictable attacks, such as the current round of man-in-the-browser attacks.”

The Leaders quadrant contains vendors with well-established records in fraud detection. They have earned high scores from many of their customers for their ability to effectively stop fraud while minimizing inconvenience to end users. These vendors are financially able to expand through acquisitions as well as global marketing and business development efforts. They have a commitment to staying in and winning in this market and to developing their products and services to meet evolving customer needs. They have also demonstrated that they can support markets in different parts of the world, other than their home country. Still, even these market leaders have much work to do in improving their products, services and customer support.

“We have spent a lot of time with our clients in the past 12 months following recent attack waves on commercial banks and their payment infrastructure and it is clear that the velocity and sophistication of targeted online attacks against organizations continues to accelerate,” said Amir Orad, president of Actimize Americas. “Actimize invests heavily to stay one step ahead of the bad guys. Our real-time, cross-channel anti-fraud solutions help our customers fight financial crime in the most effective manner. We are proud to be placed in the leader’s quadrant, and are confident that we are very well positioned to remain at the forefront of the financial crimes and compliance markets by continually delivering innovative and effective solutions to our clients.”
