Graphyte APIs enable the efficiencies of automated risk-based alerts triage, with accurate risk summaries based on a comprehensive public data review. Graphyte automatically screens the subjects of all alerts through PEP lists, sanction lists, and adverse media, and leverages machine learning scoring algorithms to extract only the most accurate and relevant sources. Every alert can be confidently categorized based on its contents as well as the external exposure of the entities involved. Alerts with high-risk exposure can be fast-tracked and low-risk alerts hibernated. Investigators spend more time on the highest-risk cases, achieve consistency in researching, analyzing, and classifying suspicious activities, and prevent false negatives. Financial institutions stay in compliance by aligning with a risk-based approach, while SAR/STRs are made more actionable for law enforcement.
