Advanced Fraud Detection Suite™
The Advanced Fraud Detection Suite (AFDS) helps identify, manage, and prevent suspicious and potentially costly fraudulent transactions. You can customize it rules-based filters and tools to suit your business model.
According to the results of the recent Cybersource Online Fraud Report, U.S. merchants lose an estimated $3.5 billion to fraud annually. The Advanced Fraud Detection Suite was specifically built by Authorize.Net to provide merchants the tools to better combat online fraud.

How it Works
Set lower and upper transaction amount thresholds to restrict high-risk transactions often used to test the validity of credit card numbers.
Shipping-Billing Mismatch Filter
Identify high-risk transactions with different shipping and billing addresses, potentially indicating purchases made using a stolen credit card.
Suspicious Transaction Filter
Reviews highly suspicious transactions using proprietary criteria identified by Authorize.Net’s dedicated Fraud Management Team.
IP Address Blocking
Block transactions from IP addresses known to be used for fraudulent activity.
Hourly Velocity Filter
Limit the total number of transactions received per hour, preventing high-volume attacks common with fraudulent transactions.
Transaction IP Velocity Filter
Isolate suspicious activity from a single source by identifying excessive transaction received from the same IP address.
Authorized AIM IP Addresses
Allows merchants submitting Advanced Integration Method (AIM) transactions to designate specific server IP addresses that are authorized to submit transactions.
Enhanced AVS Handling Filter
The Address Verification Service (AVS) is a standard feature of the payment gateway that compares the address submitted with an order to the address on file with the customer’s credit card issuer. Merchants can then choose to reject or allow transactions based on the AVS response codes. AFDS includes a new AVS filter that assists the decision process by allowing merchants the additional options of flagging AVS transactions for monitoring purposes, or holding them for manual review.
Shipping Address Verification Filter
Verifies that the shipping address received with an order is a valid postal address. Compare the shipping address provided with an order to the IP address of where the order originated from. This helps determine whether or not the order is shipping to the country from which it originated.
