					Argos Risk Introduces a Powerful Industry Solution for Risks Related to ACH
Transactions Processed by Third-Party Senders

Financial institutions face multiple levels of risk when processing ACH transactions for Third-Party
Senders and their originating customers. Argos Risk has developed a patent pending analysis
method that allows banks and credit unions to more effectively manage the risk associated with
these transactions.

Minneapolis, MN, October 26, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The Automated Clearing House (ACH) Network is
considered to be one of the safest payment systems in the world. Although the ACH system itself is
secure for the electronic transfer of funds, the transaction process is inherently risky due to the multiple
entities involved. Regulations require that Originating Depository Financial Institutions (ODFIs) that
initiate transactions on behalf of Third-Party Senders have an agreement directly with their Third-Party
Senders. However, ODFIs are not required to establish agreements with the Third-Party Sender's
originating customers even though the ODFI is ultimately responsible for all transactions initiated on
their behalf. ODFIs are at risk because they do not have direct access to critical information about these
originating customers and are bound by regulatory requirements to understand and monitor the actions of
these entities.

Argos Risk, a leading provider of SaaS technology solutions that enable companies to proactively manage
credit risk and protect against business identity fraud, recognized a tremendous need for a solution to
manage Third-Party Sender Risk. Expanding on its flagship product, Argos Risk Online, the company
created the industry's first turnkey software solution designed specifically for Third-Party Sender ACH
risk management.

Lori Frank, President of Argos Risk, explains how Argos Risk Online works: “Our technology allows
ODFIs to enter basic information on their Third-Party Senders and their originating customers such as the
company's name, website address, and mailing address. Argos Risk Online has access to multiple data
sources that generate analytical insight on the originating companies. Our sophisticated systems leverage
tremendous of amounts of data and employ algorithms and patent pending analytics to make it possible
for ODFIs to quickly and easily view specific information on Third-Party Senders and their originating
customers.”

In addition, Argos Risk Online allows ODFIs to set specific risk tolerance levels and create measurable
analytics for each business entity in order to more closely monitor its origination activities. Finally, this
technology solution allows ODFIs to generate reports on any Third-Party Sender or any of their
originating customers at any given time.
