But despite significant investments in staff and anti-fraud software, new and emerging fraud threats keep slipping through undetected. Why? Because it’s too costly to keep anti-fraud software current. Paying a vendor to make software changes dramatically increases total cost of ownership. This paper discusses how SAS addresses this challenge with next-generation fraud solutions like SAS Visual Investigator, a cloud-ready investigation and incident management platform that end users can easily configure and adapt to detect new and evolving types of fraud.
