Online Fraud & Authentication - LTP9 Canvas Report

LTP9 is the proprietary leaderboard framework from Let’s Talk Payments representing the 9 leading companies in various payments & commerce related categories. It provides a quick reference, a snapshot of companies in the category with (a) the highest impact, (b) the largest market momentum and (c) significant product focus for each of the carefully selected categories across the payments ecosystem.
