As merchants grow their e-commerce businesses, the risk of being targeted by fraudsters and hackers grows, too. One of the most common misconceptions is that hackers only target large, enterprise companies. According to a Ponemon survey conducted in 2016, 55% of small and mid-sized businesses had experienced a cyberattack within the previous 12 months—and 50% had suffered a breach involving customer and employee information.
Authorize.Net helps merchants sell products and services in multiple markets using a growing number of digital payment methods — all while simplifying efficient fraud management, reliable cybersecurity and PCI-DSS compliance.

With access to data from Visa’s vast number of transactions, Authorize.Net has one of the most intelligent, accurate and efficient fraud detection suites on the market. It’s an easy way to minimize your merchants’ chargebacks and merchandise loss, without sinking a lot of time into reviewing orders for potential fraud. Additionally, you can customize the rules-based filters to any merchant’s business to make it as effective as possible. Check out this page for a handy list of the various fraud filters and actions available to you through the advanced Fraud Detection Suite.
When you’re setting up a customized payment solution for any merchant, make sure to review the AFDS settings in the production merchant interface to adjust the filters to meet your customer’s needs.
Make it easy for your merchants to achieve PCI-DSS compliance
Handling sensitive customer payment data comes with an obligation to maintain compliance with the PCI DSS. As cyber-security assessment firm Coalfire points out in this whitepaper, Authorize.Net simplifies the integration of payments across platforms and makes the compliance process more transparent and straightforward.
Use the Authorize.Net Accept Suite to minimize merchants’ PCI burden
Ensuring that the sites you build are PCI compliant can be a challenge, potentially placing your merchant at risk, as well as complicating your process of setting up a payment platform. The Authorize.Net Accept Suite enables you to build any modern site or app without increasing the PCI burden for merchants.
