The Japanese credit card issuer Credit Saison is installing HNC Software Inc.'s Falcon anti-fraud technology, the San Diego- based vendor announced.

The card issuer viewed Falcon, which uses neural network techniques to discern questionable transaction patterns, as "the most reliable and sophisticated fraud solution available," said Credit Saison senior managing director Hiroshi Rinno.

He said the 12 million-card company was also drawn to HNC because of its family of predictive software that extends beyond Falcon.

"Credit Saison has been diligent in pursuing the best ways to manage their card portfolio and we feel honored that they have selected HNC," said Michael A. Thiemann, president of HNC Financial Solutions.
