Marqeta RiskControl is a comprehensive suite of risk management products designed for customers using its global modern card issuance platform, providing card issuers with control over card transactions, optimizing performance and mitigating program risk and compliance impact.

OAKLAND, California, April 21, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Marqeta (NASDAQ: MQ), the global modern card issuance platform, today announced its new RiskControl solution, a comprehensive suite of products designed to help its customers better optimize their card programs and gain control over end-to-end – End risk management. RiskControl is designed to provide Marqeta’s customers with comprehensive risk, compliance and fraud management capabilities across the cardholder lifecycle so they can focus on growing their business. RiskControl is anchored by the launch of a powerful new anti-fraud solution – Real-Time Decisioning – that enables card programs to develop fine-grained transaction controls and help limit payment fraud. In addition, RiskControl includes newly enhanced versions of Marqeta’s Know Your Customer (KYC) and Disputes products alongside the previously announced 3D Secure.

Global card payments are increasing every year, with more than 450 billion card payments being processed in 2020 alone. With the pandemic-driven payments digital transformation, the risk of fraud is also increasing significantly, underscoring the need for card issuers to provide businesses with next-level control to accurately contain fraud. Marqeta’s RiskControl solution was developed as a direct offering to reduce risk for its customers, enabling them to stay ahead of fraud and streamline their risk and compliance programs without compromising the cardholder experience or that to slow the growth of the card program.

“When we speak to our customers, the threat of payment fraud is consistently raised as one of their top business concerns. We see the global increase in fraud taking a heavy toll on card issuers and processors, reinforcing the need to offer highly effective risk and fraud management solutions tailored to unique cardholder experiences,” said Randy Kern, Marqeta’s Chief Technology Officer “Marqeta’s deep card issuance expertise helps us deliver a unique end-to-end fraud and risk management solution specifically tailored for card issuance transactional data. We put the technology in the hands of our customers and create it.” Proactive growth potential from protection against the growing risk of fraud.”

Marqeta’s customers already using RiskControl include Klarna, Yonder and Branch. RiskControl’s core products – KYC, Real-Time Decisioning, 3D Secure and Disputes – are designed to manage risk and compliance across the entire cardholder lifecycle, from customer onboarding and KYC to payment transactions and dispute management.

  • Know Your Customer (KYC) provides identity verification capabilities designed to meet compliance requirements, block fraudsters, and allow businesses to securely onboard cardholders with minimal fuss. Improvements to Marqeta’s KYC solution can improve success rates, allowing card programs to quickly onboard more customers and reduce their time to value.

  • Real-time decisioning enables organizations to develop fine-grained card transaction controls from hundreds of data attributes – including card network risk scores – to manage payment fraud. Issuers have real-time control over their card payment transactions while ensuring they are only accepted in accordance with a strict set of business rules. They can also monitor and review transactions to continuously improve their rules as business needs and external threats evolve. Developed in partnership with Featurespace, Real-Time Decisioning was rolled out in beta to select customers and is expected to be generally available later this year.

  • Marqeta’s 3D Secure tool enables issuers to create customized authentication experiences for online transactions. 3D Secure allows users to leverage their own business logic and data to prevent fraud without adding unnecessary friction or cardholder abandonment.

  • Marqeta’s disputes tool provides risk operations teams with a streamlined process for handling disputes and chargebacks, accelerating resolution time and improving the overall cardholder experience. Marqeta customers can use the Marqeta dashboard and program administration services to help them effectively create, submit and manage disputes at scale. Advanced API functionality is currently available to Marqeta customers in beta and is expected to be generally available later this year.

Marqeta’s data-driven RiskControl offering empowers users to take their risk management to the next level. Its customers will have full control over the card program, gaining real-time insights and building controls tailored to cardholders. RiskControl aims to overhaul the old-fashioned way of managing risk and implement an innovative all-in-one solution designed for risk teams managing card programs.

“Marqeta’s Real-Time Decisioning solution is an important tool in helping us stay ahead of potential fraud issues,” said Theso Jivajirajah, Yonder’s Chief Risk Officer. “We’ve already seen how Marqeta’s flexible controls have helped us fight fraudulent transactions before they happen and provide a better experience for our customers.”
