Transaction Screening

Screen domestic and cross-border payments for sanctions compliance

Screen incoming or outgoing payments against compliance lists, including individual sanctions, PEP, country, currency, and internal do-not-do business lists to block suspicious transactions in real time.


Low-risk, instant payments

Stop risky transactions by screening all relevant fields of a payment message, including name and address of ordering entity and beneficiaries, BIC code elements, currency types, and countries, as well as free format text fields.

Robust matching

Alert prioritization

Prioritize and review high-risk payment alerts with configurations based on the time period, threshold amount, transaction type, and other relevant data elements of a transaction message.

Faster resolution

Review all alerts generated from hits against sanctions and PEP lists, blocked country lists, monitoring rules, etc. within the same screen.
