Acuant, the global trusted identity platform for fraud prevention and AML compliance, today announced its partnership with Chainalysis, the blockchain analysis company, to help financial institutions and cryptocurrency businesses assess risk, automate workflows, safeguard against illicit transactions and protect their reputations with superior Anti-Money Laundering (AML) solutions.
Acuant and Chainalysis customers will now be able to leverage both platforms via the Acuant interface to seamlessly manage transactions that are indicative of higher risk.
