Zeta, a credit card processor, and Featurespace, a firm focused on addressing enterprise fraud and financial crime prevention, announced their partnership “to bring to market a solution that combines best-in-class credit card processing and fraud detection for Issuers in the US.”

Featurespace offers what it claims is “the leading fraud detection engine available today, utilizing a combination of artificial intelligence, behavioral networks, and rules-based decisioning to identify fraud without disrupting the customer experience.”

Zeta’s credit card processing stack – Zeta Tachyon – “allows Issuers to go to market more quickly than legacy processors, launch transformative credit card products, hyper-personalize their credit card programs across millions of credit card holders, and develop unique IP to differentiate their products from other Issuers.”

The stack is “built with no legacy code and is 100% cloud-native, API-first, and uses modern micro-services architecture and zero-trust security principles.”
