While BAE Systems will provide AI driven powerful fraud detection platform covering entire depth and breadth of the Financial Crimes for BFSI clients globally, Mphasis would bring its strong services portfolio and experience of technology and systems through its deep domain expertise.
Nitin Rakesh, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director, Mphasis, said: “While financial crime has been there since the beginning of the financial services industry; the evolution of criminals and their ability to use technology to disrupt economies is a bigger threat than ever. This Centre of Excellence in partnership with BAE Systems will bring together the best of both worlds to keep financial organisations safer, globally raising the bar for the security of financial systems.”
Sanjay Samuel, MD Financial Services, BAE Systems Applied Intelligence, said: “Fraud is growing at a rapid pace. New regulations, new channels and demand for seamless customer experiences present a unique challenge for each organisation. A new approach is needed, one that marries advanced analytics and machine learning with human intuition, the solution is NetReveal. By partnering with Mphasis, we will be able to reach more customers who will benefit from their domain expertise and technology, whilst continuing to reap the benefit of our market leading solutions and in-depth knowledge of the financial crime domain.”
