According to the company, utilising the new solutions, businesses can onboard customers more swiftly, while simultaneously protecting their organisations and customers against losses from fraud and financial crimes in an increasingly complex digital landscape.

GBG managing director APAC June Lee says, “Nearly one in two enterprises in Asia Pacific are falling victim to fraud, money laundering, or other forms of financial crime. Financial institutions find themselves facing unprecedented diversity of application and transactional channels - from branch to online and ewallets.

“These channels and criminal activities are evolving at a speed and complexity that these enterprises, and the financial institutions that support them, are hard-pressed to keep up with.
