Your First Line of Defense – The SENTINEL Report
SENTINEL affords you quick and reliable information that gives you the basics of what you need to know about any website – for an efficient pre-approval phase.
In a time of increasing pressure to accelerate on-boarding procedures, thorough Due Diligence often falls by the wayside. This can have devastating consequences for Acquiring Banks, Payment Service Providers and financial institutions in general, resulting in legal scrutiny and painful fees, imposed by regulators or the credit card schemes. A false decision may not only cost you money and nerves, but also has the potential to damage your organization’s reputation permanently. Then again, the competition does not allow for an extended manual review of every candidate.
SENTINEL is specifically developed to address this need for a time-efficient assessment, especially in the pre-approval phase of Card-Not-Present applications. It generates a basic report of any website in only 120 minutes – with just the URL as input. In addition to its speed, the SENTINEL Report is highly adaptable by offering up to five optional modules to augment its investigative depth. It is the ultimate solution for anyone seeking fast, but robust Website Due Diligence.
A Basic Report includes:
- Website Description,
- Server Location,
- Website Visitors,
- Website Entity Details,
- Website Compliance
- Content Violation Scan,
- WHOIS Details,
- Risks & Recommendations and
- Additional Details.
Adaptability Through Modular Design – SENTINEL+
We understand the importance of a risk-based approach. Every merchant is unique. Sometimes it might be enough to just run the minimal checks on the website and – if no red flags are raised – to proceed with the boarding. Other entities, especially when they are operating in high-risk areas, require a greater level of scrutiny.
There are no “one-size-fits-all” solutions in the varied landscape of ecommerce. The SENTINEL Report is constructed with this principle in mind. In addition to the basic report, you can choose up to six modules to adjust the investigation to your individual risk needs:
