In the era of digital transformation, the battle against online fraud has intensified, casting a shadow over payment systems, financial transactions, and compliance procedures. Businesses find themselves grappling with the relentless onslaught of fraudsters exploiting vulnerabilities, resulting in a surge of fraud incidents spanning merchant and customer onboarding, Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance, transaction fraud, and money laundering.

From a transaction point of view, online businesses are in dire need of solutions encompassing fraud detection mechanisms, risk scoring for transactions, validation of transactions in real time, and issues with reconciliations of financial transactions.

Most financial companies also need to manage compliance with regulatory requirements like payment regulations, data protection laws, industry standards, implementing measures to detect and prevent money laundering activities, compliance with PCI DSS, and maintaining trails of reports and audits.

A breakthrough solution

In response to this mammoth challenge, Tutelar, a fintech startup headquartered in Chennai, has emerged as a beacon of trust, offering cutting-edge solutions to fortify businesses against these evolving threats.

The startup detects and prevents fraud in onboarding, KYC, real-time payment transactions, and anti-money laundering. As part of its portfolio, Tutelar also provides automation and software solutions for managing compliance in line with guidelines by regulatory authorities to avoid penalties, fines, and business closures. This is coupled with data intelligence to help businesses make informed risk decisions by assessing details of unapproved and blacklisted entities from an exhaustive list of sources.
