Positive Pay
for Electronic Payments

Ensure the payee and transaction are correct, legitimate, and approved by your customer BEFORE processing a transaction

Banks and their corporate clients are at risk

Fraudsters have acquired proficiency in exploiting advanced technologies, including deepfake AI, to infiltrate an organization’s communication and business systems.
This enables them to orchestrate fraudulent payment transactions.

Taking fraud prevention beyond signatory rights

Organizations and banks face the constant risk of losing millions to payment fraud. Cybercriminals are increasingly attacking business customers and business-to-business (B2B) transactions using phishing campaigns, advanced cyber threats, and sophisticated deepfake AI technology, which elevates the potential for financial loss. These fraudsters persistently attempt to steal credentials, manipulate payment files, or deceive bankers and corporate clients using deepfake content such as fake videos, images, and voice simulations, all in order to inject and authorize fraudulent transactions, often exploiting the fact that corporate finance teams lack the robust cybersecurity defenses of banks.

Authorized ≠ Verified

Much like Positive Pay for checks, which helps in the early detection of fraudulent, altered, or counterfeit checks, nsKnox has developed Positive Pay for Electronic payments – a unique and intelligent solution designed to enable banks to ensure that beneficiaries and transactions processed by the bank are correct, legitimate and approved internally by the bank’s customer.

How Positive Pay for Electronic Payments can help

Positive Pay for Electronic Payments has the flexibility to either block suspected fraudulent transactions in real-time or, if operated in a basic Alert Mode, may simply detect such transactions and alert the bank and its customers after processing. The bank and its users may choose their preferred mode of operation and even have the flexibility to establish certain thresholds for transaction values to choose between the two options.

Why should you implement the nsKnox Positive Pay for Electronic Payments?

Verifying both the payee and the exact transaction

against the corporate client’s internal systems can save both the bank and its client from negative scenarios such as:


Fraudsters use stolen credentials to perform fraudulent payment transactions via the bank’s online banking application.

A payment is entered using the online banking application without going through your corporate client’s proper beneficiary or approval process.

Alert sign

Fraudsters use data theft/deep fake AI/social engineering to mislead a bank employee, causing them to issue fraudulent payments.

computer bug

Cyber-criminals or bad insiders manipulate your corporate client’s payment files before they are submitted for processing by the bank.

Counterfeit paper checks are used for transactions.

Human error or insider fraud by a bank employee results in transferring corporate client’s funds to a wrong/fraudulent account.
