Protecting Your Business from Fraud
Even actions as simple as verifying payment requests is all it takes to prevent fraud from occurring at your business. Layering the simple actions with more preventative measures, such requiring multi-factor authentication (MFA) and enabling Positive Pay to stop check fraud, furthers your defenses against fraud and keeps your information and money safe.
