Companies Rely on Redis Enterprise to Power Modern Fraud-Detection Platforms
We are now, simply, Redis
With exponential growth in online transactions, detecting and mitigating fraud is now more complex than ever before. Built to handle AI and machine learning workloads, tools to power real-time statistical analysis, and provide consistently high write throughput at low latency, Redis Enterprise is the answer to faster and more accurate fraud detection.
Today’s digital and mobile payments platforms are much more complex and distributed. They present many more software vulnerabilities and operate with a level of interconnectedness that traditional fraud detection techniques weren’t originally designed to address.
Thanks to modern software platforms, transactions are executed nearly instantly, but the same processing speed that creates a great experience for customers leaves banks and payment processors with less time to identify and react to fraud.
Personal information traditionally verified with physical documents is now stored online—easily accessible enough for a single data breach to put millions at risk of identity theft, account takeovers, and the creation of fake identities.
Companies lose tens of billions of dollars to fraud each year in the form of fines, settlements, and erosion of the trust and customer loyalty that underpins the financial services industry. The increased complexity, volume, and speed of today’s online transactions means your organization will need more advanced methods of fraud detection to keep up with malicious actors.
Serve deep learning models directly where your data lives in Redis Enterprise for dramatically increased performance, enabling faster and more accurate fraud analysis.
Using Redis Enterprise in our fraud detection service was an excellent decision for our organization. It is enabling us to easily manage billions of transactions per day, keep pace with our exponential growth rate, and speed fraud detection for all of our clients.

AI and machine learning models are increasingly being used to improve the speed and accuracy of fraud-detection platforms, but the need to query reference data stored in a separate database creates network overhead that slows processing times. Redis Enterprise lets you serve deep-learning models directly where your data lives for dramatically increased performance, enabling faster and more accurate fraud analysis.
RedisGears is a serverless engine for transaction, batch, and event-driven data processing in Redis that enables you to execute functions in Redis with infinite programmability. RedisGears enables use cases like write-behind caching, event processing, and the use of multiple models together in Redis to power more sophisticated fraud analysis.
Being able to store and quickly access user profiles is essential to verifying customer identity and preventing fraud. Redis Enterprise can act as a highly available cache for user profile and session data so that companies can prevent fraud from occurring as transactions are processed.
Digital identities that examine transaction history alongside user information must be updated constantly to work properly. Redis Enterprise provides the high write throughput and low latency needed to act as a primary database for storing and updating digital identities in real time.
Graph databases that can track relationships at the attribute level are being increasingly used to detect synthetic fraud, where multiple fake identities are created from a combination of real and falsified personal information. RedisGraph enables graph processing for these use cases to be executed up to 600x faster than any other graph database.
RedisTimeSeries enables you to ingest and query millions of metrics and events per second for historical analysis and anomaly detection, with support for incredibly fast ingest operations and integrations with existing metrics-visualization platforms.
Bloom filters are probabilistic data structures used to determine whether or not an item is part of a set. RedisBloom provides a fast and efficient implementation of Bloom filters that can be queried to see whether a particular transaction is present in a list of known fraudulent patterns to help decide whether deeper forensic analysis is needed.
Redis Enterprise uses a shared-nothing cluster architecture and is fault tolerant at all levels. It has automated failover at the process level, for individual nodes, and even across infrastructure availability zones, as well as tunable persistence and disaster recovery.
Redis Enterprise can act as an event store with Redis Streams supporting fraud-detection platforms designed to ingest and analyze large amounts of transactions in real time.
By combining multiple Redis modules and data structures, Redis Enterprise can power multiple components of your fraud-detection platform. The result is a simpler architecture that can process data across multiple models without needing to run multiple database clients and connectors.
