Luminate is the definitive fraud prevention solution that uses advanced analytics, machine learning and intelligent data orchestration to create meaningful insights.

Fraud decisions can now effectively be managed across the consumer account lifecycle.

XML Consumer (planned for Q4 2021)

Moving the Consumer XML calls into Apigee, but keeping them on XML format.
