RSA, The Security Division of EMC, announces Adaptive Authentication for eCommerce v16.2






The RSA Adaptive Authentication for eCommerce v16.2 solution is a comprehensive authentication and fraud detection solution for the eCommerce market. The solution is based on the 3DSecure protocol (Verified By Visa, MasterCard SecureCode and American Express SafeKey) and is powered by risk-based authentication, an intelligent system that authenticates users by measuring a series of risk indicators. This transparent authentication provides for a unique user experience as customers are only challenged in the highest risk scenarios.


Version 16.2 introduces the following functional and technical enhancements:




Risk Assessment Visibility


The Case Management application offers the option of presenting the key factors contributing to the transaction risk assessment. This option improves and enriches the data that is accessible to a fraud analyst when looking at an e-Commerce transaction. The new information provides some background data about the reasons behind challenging, declining, or allowing a transaction to go through. Each contributor includes a short explanation and an arrow indicating whether it increases or decreases the risk. In addition, the actual rule applied to the transactions is presented. This enhancement is optional and will be enabled per request.




KBA Foreign Address Resolution


For customers using KBA (Knowledge Based Authentication), RSA has improved its exception handling mechanism. When a foreign address is used which prevents a utilization of the KBA option, instead of aborting the transaction, the service can fall back to a secondary authentication method as configured per issuing bank.




ADA Usability Enhancements


In compliance with the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards, the service user interface has been improved, addressing a few minor usability issues.




RDR Activity Log Enhancements


The Activity Log RDR (Raw Data Report) has been enhanced to include tracking of PAN deactivate and reactivate operations.




Security Enhancements


RSA has addressed several security related issues found in internal and external audits improving the overall security of the service and the protection provided to the sensitive data.
