Feedzai’s intelligent platform ingests and transforms multiple data streams and fraud insights across any channel, then enriches the data to create hypergranular risk profiles. Feedzai’s machine learning then works to process events and transactions in milliseconds and delivers explainable AI by adding a human-readable semantic layer to the underlying machine logic. The result is better fraud prevention, streamlined operations, and improved customer experience.

Feedzai’s integrated development and test environment instantaneously takes models from build to production all while optimizing for machine learning features, so models are both predictable and accurate to expected results. This allows for organizations to proactively guard points of compromise.
