Yapital: Sophisticated ReD Shield Service Provides Real-Time Security and Fraud Prevention to Yapital

LUXEMBOURG and LONDON, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Co-operation between the first European cross-channel payment system and ReD, a world leading provider of online fraud prevention and transaction security

With Yapital, a simple click of the 'Confirm' button is all it takes to complete a payment. The whole process is secure and simple - and simply secure! To effectively protect customer transactions and prevent fraud, the innovative cross-channel payment solution Yapital is co-operating with ReD, a leading international provider of fraud prevention services and transaction security. The integration of the ReD Shield® fraud prevention service means all Yapital transactions can be verified and protected in real time, with instant detection of fraudulent activities.

Yapital, the first European cross-channel-payment solution, was launched in the summer of 2013 by Otto Group, one of the world's largest online retailers. Yapital provides payments across all channels - online, mobile, in-store and by invoice. Over recent months, several important partners have integrated the pioneering payment system, including Germany's leading supermarket chain REWE. Where payment by QR code scan is not yet possible, Yapital consumers can use their Yapital MasterCard, enabling them to pay at more than 35 million acceptance points worldwide.    

By signing a five-year contract with ReD, Yapital Financial AG has secured a strong and competent partner to further support the effective protection of customer transactions. The real-time ReD Shield fraud prevention service supports some of the world's leading merchants, gathering vital fraud intelligence from around the world to inform tailored fraud strategies for retailers, travel, telecommunications, finance, gaming and entertainment companies.

"With Yapital we have created a payment method that suits the lifestyle of modern consumers", explains Nils Winkler, Chairman of the Board at Yapital. ReD's industry-leading fraud prevention solution and profound risk expertise allow us to provide our users with an easy and secure payment experience across all channels - and this well-founded trust of our customers will help us to reach our growth and expansion goals."

Manish Patel, regional president for EMEA and Latin America at ReD, adds: "Yapital's cross-channel payment solution is a significant innovation and the perfect platform to demonstrate our real-time screening capabilities. Yapital will be able to draw on the expertise and global experience of ReD's risk analysts, working closely with them to monitor and refine rules, continually improve fraud prevention performance and adapt to the changing behavior of fraudsters."

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.
