Emailage, the global leader in online fraud prevention and email risk assessment, triumphed at the PayTech Awards in London last week for its Rapid Risk Score technology. Rapid Risk is helping eCommerce merchants keep their customers safe by identifying and stopping fraudulent transactions.

The PayTech Awards, in their second year, recognize excellence and innovation in the use of IT in the finance and payment industry worldwide, and the people who make it happen.

For software providers, a PayTech Award is a valuable recognition of the company’s products and services, and an endorsement by the paytech community.

Thomas Barnes, Regional Marketing Manager at Emailage, collected the award on behalf of the company. He said: “We are thrilled to win the award for Best E-commerce Initiative. It is a highly competitive environment and we were up against a number of hugely innovative companies.”

He added: “The event was a true reflection of the payments industry’s rapid growth, and we were very pleased to have been recognized for our technology, and that our solution was received positively in the eCommerce industry.”

CEO of Emailage, Rei Carvalho, commented: “Receiving this award would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication from our team at Emailage.”

He added: “eCommerce businesses are faced with the current issue of providing the best customer experience while minimizing fraud, with zero friction. We elevate our customers by providing a best-in-class solution that strikes the balance between convenience and security.”
