Discover stated that with this system, transactions can be blocked in real time, enabling PULSE Participants to respond faster to suspected fraud before more fraud is reported on a card, thus reducing losses of the cardholder. The Company informed that in addition, financial institution participants may use an optional service that includes the development of custom rules specific to their organization, helping minimize the impact of false positives on cardholders. George Danforth, PULSE Vice President, Emerging Products, said, "This technology leap was necessary because fraud sophistication and speed are increasing, with fraud cycles becoming shorter, more varied and harder to detect. DebitProtect uses unique PULSE data, scoring and analytics to monitor debit transactions at ATMs and the point of sale and adds an additional layer of fraud detection to those provided by processors and in-house systems."
