Cyber fraud is a growing problem for banks and is expected to cost US$6tn a year by 2021*. As fraudsters get ever more sophisticated and organized, so the challenge to stop and catch them gets harder and more complex. But it’s not just new fraud attempts: one piece of malware launched against Swiss banks four years ago still creates 90 new victims every day**.

NetGuardians/Swisscom FPS uses machine learning, profiling and advanced data analytics to catch would-be fraudsters before they strike. It is designed for banks with Avaloq and Finnova core banking systems hosted in Switzerland, and is fully configurable to adapt to individual customer needs.

Features include real-time blocking of suspicious transactions and dynamic profiling to continuously analyze the behavior of banks’ customers and employees. This profiling builds up a 360-degree picture against which activity is continually monitored with unusual and suspicious actions raising alerts.

Bernard Hofmann of the Core Banking Management Team at Swisscom said:

“Fraud is a huge challenge for banks. By teaming up with NetGuardians we can offer our customers the very best anti-fraud solution available to help minimize the risk and protect them. It’s a smart solution that makes the most of the customers’ resources.”


Joël Winteregg, CEO and Co-founder of NetGuardians, said:

“Banking systems are increasingly interconnected and open. This is great for meeting customer needs but creates new fraud threats. Working with the number one Swiss IT provider means we can help more banks more quickly in their fight against fraud. This has got to be good.”
