Fraud prevention solutions

EMV chip

For nearly two decades, Mastercard has played a leading role in the creation, management and continued development of the EMV standard. We offer a unique set of EMV solutions — known as M/Chip? — to help issuers and merchants implement new payment solutions quickly.

Identity Check

As a merchant, you accept more and more payments digitally every day, yet you need to ensure that every transaction is secure. Mastercard Identity Check leverages the latest authentication standards of EMV? 3-D Secure (replacing 3DS 1.0) to complete more transactions without disruption.

Address Verification and Card Validation Code 2 Services

Each year, more merchants than ever conduct "card-not-present" transactions with customers they never see. But electronic commerce also brings new kinds of payment fraud. Mastercard verification and security programs enable shoppers to feel more confident and merchants to protect their businesses.

EMS Fraud Scoring

Expert Monitoring Real-Time Fraud Scoring Service uses state-of-the-art predictive modeling technology to provide a real-time fraud score on all transactions processed through the Mastercard network. The score indicates the likelihood that the transaction contained in the authorization request is fraudulent or high-risk.

Biometric Card

The Mastercard Biometric Card provides an innovative way to authenticate cardholders at any EMV point-of-sale. A built-in sensor allows your customers to use a fingerprint to authenticate their identity during a transaction as an alternative to PIN or signature.
