RSA Introduces Outseer, an RSA Company and a Spin-off of its Risk and Fraud Intelligence Unit, to Transform Customer Authentication and Accelerate Revenues in the Digital Economy

Science-based solutions for payment authentication and account monitoring serving 6,000 institutions worldwide with 20 billion transactions annually

RSA Security LLC (“RSA” or the “Company”) today announced the transition of its Risk and Fraud Intelligence unit to a new independent company serving a global community of customers and partners.

The new organization, Outseer, is led by CEO Reed Taussig, who joined RSA’s Fraud and Risk Intelligence unit in late 2020 and is a veteran of the fraud prevention and digital identity industry.

With this strategic transition defined by self-managed business management and modern corporate identity, Outseer will continue to offer all traditional products in a newly formed portfolio:

Outseer 3-D Secure ™ – (formerly RSA Adaptive Authentication for eCommerce) the gold standard in authenticating digital and card-not-present payments that conforms to the latest EMV® 3-D Secure protocol.

Outseer FraudAction ™ – (formerly RSA FraudAction) provides rapid detection, removal, and reporting of data related to phishing sites, fake apps, and scam social media pages.

Together, these award-winning offerings serve as a benchmark for payment authentication, compromised account fraud detection, and fraud investigations, while maintaining a frictionless customer experience for the world’s leading businesses, issuing banks, and payment providers.

“Outseer is the result of decades of science-driven innovation in anti-fraud and payment authentication solutions,” said Taussig. “As the digital economy continues to deepen, Outseer’s mission to rid the world of transactional fraud is critical. Our role as revenue enablers for the global economy will only take hold as all digital businesses continue to grow.” .

This movement follows the COVID-19 pandemic, which fueled unprecedented growth in trade and compressed a decade of transformation into 12 months. Payment card schemes, issuing banks, and merchant providers have all witnessed unprecedented fraudulent transactions and even organized attacks on their payment networks.

To meet these new challenges, Outseer will continue to innovate its payment authentication offerings, adhering to the EMV® 3-D Secure 2.x protocol and incorporating new technology integrations throughout the commerce and payments ecosystem.

“The reason for Outseer’s existence is not just about eliminating payments and account fraud,” Taussig said. “These fraudulent transactions are often the pretext for other more sinister behaviors, such as drug and human trafficking, terrorism and other nefarious behaviors. Outseer has the ability to help make the world a safer place.”
