Payment providers bolster security

It has been a busy week for payment providers. Yesterday Sightline announced that it has teamed up with GeoComply in order to improve the “security and efficiency” of digital transactions within the regulated gaming industry.

The fintech company will integrate both GeoComply’s IDComply identity verification solution and compliance-grade geolocation tools across its comprehensive suite of digital payment solutions in order to validate digital transactions and ensure compliance with regulations.

The news comes off the back of a report by TransUnion that found instances of suspected digital fraud rose in the U.S. gaming industry had increased in 2023. The TransUnion 2024 State of Omnichannel Fraud Report found that gaming had the highest rate of suspected digital fraud in the U.S. in 2023 at 10.9%, up 9% year-over-year.
