How to safeguard instant payments in real-time with advanced authentication from Entersekt

In today's fast-paced financial landscape, the need for instantaneous transactions has never been more critical. Enter instant payments offered by services like FedNowSM, RTP®, and peer-to-peer (P2P) payment platforms like Venmo and Apple Pay.

Now, as popular as these products are among consumers, behind the scenes, fraudsters love them too. In fact, in the UK alone, 97% of recent authorized push payment (APP) scams occurred on their Faster Payment rails.

Entersekt’s groundbreaking authentication technology is designed to fortify instant payment systems against these and other evolving cyber threats. Give us a try!

Instant payment protection: How it works.

With nearly half of Americans already using P2P payments, FIs need to focus on how to protect customers from real-time payment scams. An effective solution could work like this:
  • Instant payments are evaluated by a real-time risk system.

  • Low-risk payments are processed without friction, providing that “instant gratification” synonymous with real-time payments.
  • Higher-risk payments trigger a secure push notification to the customer’s linked device.
  • Customers can click either “Send” or “Reject”.
  • Clicking “Send” triggers biometric authentication, if enabled, to verify the customer’s identity, and payment is made.
  • Clicking “Reject” blocks the payment immediately, stopping any fraudster in their tracks.
