Thursday 6 July 2023 13:09 CET | News

Meta Platforms has selected US-based nsKnox to provide global vendor account validation and B2B payments fraud protection.


Through this partnership, nsKnox will help Meta provide its vendors with a more streamlined and secure process when onboarding or changing banking details. The solution offered by nsKnox was designed to protect Meta and its vendors against significant financial losses and reputational damage by validating vendor bank account ownership anywhere in the world while preventing manipulations across every point of the payment transaction journey. 

NsKnox’s PaymentKnox for AP is able to integrate with several Meta financial and operational systems. This gives Meta peace of mind that its Master Vendor File (MVF) is always kept safe, as any changes made will automatically be audited to make sure no unauthorised change is entered into master data. The solution is able to ensure that all payments are sent to the intended beneficiaries by leveraging global account validation and payment transaction scanning. 

NsKnox representatives cited by Yahoo Finance expressed their gratitude to be able to work with Meta in streamlining and securing the vendor onboarding experience. They also talked about the company’s goals and its commitment to protecting B2B payments, whether outbound or inbound, safeguarding against external threats and bad insiders.
