Boston, MA, and Skopje, Macedonia, August 04, 2009. Axeltra (formerly Amplecom), a leading ColdFusion e-commerce shopping cart platform used by thousands of online merchants and ColdFusion developers, and MaxMind, a leading provider of IP geolocation and fraud detection solutions, today announced a partnership aimed at helping customers reduce fraud levels in e-commerce site transactions. The partnership demonstrates MaxMind and Axeltra’s continued commitment to improving the safety and security of online shopping.

As part of the agreement, Axeltra has integrated MaxMind, with its minFraud fraud detection solution, into its standard release, complementing and enhancing the existing internal fraud-screening controls. MaxMind’s fraud detection can be utilized to evaluate credit card transactions not covered by 3-D Secure, as well as PayPal transactions.

“The integration of a tool such as MaxMind Fraud Protection allows us to concentrate on the development of the core functionalities of our e-commerce software while providing a bulletproof solution to our customers and developers,” says the CEO of Axeltra. “MinFraud will provide tremendous value.”

“We are excited to work with Axeltra. They have developed a robust e-commerce solution on the ColdFusion platform,” said Ed Lin, Business Development Manager. “Through the partnership, their customers will have access to our proven fraud detection tool without additional integration work needed.”
