Low Latency Fraud Prevention with Redis Labs

Time is money, and the difference between milliseconds and microseconds can mean the difference between big profits or losses. In modern business low latency is important, but it’s critical in banking and financial services, especially since fraud has grown to epidemic proportions. Fraudulent charges are costing companies billions of dollars, and that’s why it’s important for IT decision makers in financial services to measure latency in microseconds. A low-latency, scalable, in-memory data store like Redis can enable organizations to architect to meet this critical business need. Drawing from first principles and best practices, learn how to architect to prevent fraud in milliseconds.
