HOBOKEN, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NICE Actimize, a NICE business (Nasdaq: NICE) and a leader in Autonomous Financial Crime Management, today announced that IDC, a global provider of market intelligence, has named NICE Actimize a Leader in the inaugural “IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Enterprise Fraud Management in Banking 2020 Vendor Assessment.” (Doc #US45617020 July 2020).

Steven D’Alfonso, Research Director, IDC Financial Insights, said,Banks should consider fraud as a strategic priority within the overall digital transformation strategy of the organization.

The growth of digital and mobile banking as well as expanding ecommerce and digital payments necessitates that banks can identify potential fraud in real time. In addition, they must be agile enough to quickly adapt to changing fraud threats and trends, identify suspicious activity across channels, and detect organized ring activity.
