MasterCard Merchant Monitoring Service Provider
Starting on July 1st, 2015 all Principal Members of MasterCard can register Web Shield Limited as an official ‘Merchant Monitoring Service Provider’ (MMSP) in the Merchant Monitoring Program (MMP). During your participation in the MMP of the BRAM Program, MasterCard may grant some mitigation on assessments for a BRAM and/or Merchant Transaction Laundering violation resulting from conduct of a particular merchant, provided MasterCard determines that all criteria that are outlined in the “Merchant Monitoring Program Registration” are met (available to Principal Members only).
In this context you may choose to register Web Shield for
a) BRAM Monitoring, and/or
b) Transaction Laundering Detection.
The ‘BRAM Monitoring’ refers to the MONITOR solution (included in SHIELD & MONITOR) that we are providing. The “Transaction Laundering Detection” refers to our new product release “Transaction Laundering Screen” that is featured below.
The MMP requires the Principal Member to provide MasterCard with a monthly report of all merchants and URLs monitored, which must include all identifications and resolutions for any merchant monitored and submitted by either the MMSP with a copy to the acquirer or directly from the acquirer. If you would like Web Shield to report the results directly to MasterCard, please provide us the below details:

All details can be sent directly to email@example.com. If you require a prefilled “Merchant Monitoring Program Registration” document or if you need any kind of assistance during the registration process, please get in touch with us directly.
Transaction Laundering Screen
The Transaction Laundering Screen (TLS) is a feature for the prevention and detection of transaction laundering (or transaction cleansing). Details about this attack type will be provided in the upcoming TLS product sheet. It contains in total three different tools and services.
a) Transaction Laundering Shield
The ‘Transaction Laundering Shield’ is a due diligence tool that can be used e. g. by affiliate networks to conduct a full screening on their affiliates. This includes the cross-check of internal blacklists, full background screenings, affiliate website screening and also the full identification (including passport verification) of the affiliate.
b) Transaction Laundering Screen
The ‘Transaction Laundering Screen’ is a live screening solution that can be implemented on a payment page (or a hosted payment page). It requires the implementation of a script that sends specific, e.g. website user referral URL, associated Affiliate information, etc.) about the website user to the Web Shield System. The system then automtically screens the referral link for content violations and returns the information in less than a second back to the system. In addition the system can also be used to blacklist and whitelist certain URLs.
c) Payment System Protection Program
The Transaction Laundering Screen also contains access to the PSPP (more details on http://webshieldltd.com/payment-system-protection-program/).
