Visa Risk Manager

Issuers using Visa Risk Manager to manage fraud risk can integrate with the VRM APIs to gain operational efficiencies.

Visa Risk Manager is the intelligent decisioning solution powered by VisaNet. Via a web portal, issuers can manage rules to decline high risk purchases/wallet provisioning requests or to flag and prioritize suspicious purchases that require further investigation to determine if the cardholder made the purchase. Using the VRM APIs, issuers can automate communication between their back office systems and Visa Risk Manager.
