Natwest teams up with Vocalink Analytics

3 April 2018

NatWest has further strengthened its fraud protection systems with the adoption of a sophisticated machine learning solution. Corporate Fraud Insights from Vocalink Analytics detects and alerts on corporate payments.

The system is designed to detect and prevent invoice redirection fraud - where businesses are duped into paying money into a fraudster’s account rather than to their intended supplier. Vocalink Analytics and NatWest worked together to develop, test and launch Corporate Fraud Insights, which identifies and flags suspicious non-real time payments.
