These are long-termsolutions to reducing fraud, but there is a new category of payment cardprotection that is near at hand and getting strong results in pilot tests –cardholder account controls – controlled through applications on yourcardholder’s smartphones. This newcategory of technology-based solutions for the payment industry has been discussedin a recent research NOTE, CardholderAccount Controls via Mobile Devices, by Mercator Advisory GroupDebit Analyst Ron Mazursky.
