Enhance Security with Advanced Fraud Prevention Features from Braintree

Security has been top of mind for online merchants and their customers due to the recent large-scale data breaches at major retailers. These security breaches reinforce the need for merchants to go the extra mile and stay protected. Common first lines of defense such as CVV and AVS checks, along with basic techniques we recommended in Identifying Potential Fraudulent Transactions, are no longer enough. That's why we're recommending you integrate Braintree-data.js.

If you’re a Braintree customer, you can relax knowing that the sensitive data captured by your website’s e-commerce platform is secured by the pros. Braintree offers more than just the basic transaction data checks provided by other payment providers.

In addition to industry-standard security, Braintree gives you access to advanced protection with our Braintree-data.js library, at no additional cost. Our powerful fraud prevention tools can perform hundreds of checks within milliseconds, reviewing factors including credit card usage, geolocation, and proxy use, as well as device identification. All of this is done before the authorization of purchase is complete, allowing you to determine the true integrity of the transaction.
