Before Axiomatics (Challenge)Payment service provider wanted to reduce operational cost of transaction and address their audit concerns.A large national bank was unable to use their IGA role-based systems to manage the delegation of permissions for special cases.European bank needed to comply with regulations that oversaw the prevention of "conflicts of interest" cause by existing relationship between employees and their families. The relationship associated with the employee will determine whether they can access the financial data of a customer regardless of their role with the bank.To fight against fraudulent behaviors, a national bank wants to be able to detect fraudulent instances and terminate accesses when it occurs.

  • Approvals can be automatically made, if predetermined conditions are met, which increases speed of transactions.
