AGOURA HILLS, Calif., Feb. 20, 2007 — Interthinx™, the leading provider of comprehensive fraud prevention, compliance and decision support tools for the mortgage industry, has integrated its loan-level fraud detection system, FraudGuard®, with the Empower® loan origination system (LOS) from Fidelity National Information Services, Inc.

FIS Empower is dedicated to providing the best software solutions in the lending community.   As a result of this integration, loans originated in Empower can be submitted to FraudGUARD for automatic screening for potential mortgage fraud.

“Empower customers who use the interface will find the experience convenient because they can export loan-application data to the FraudGUARD system without having to exit the Empower software system or re-enter loan data,” noted Mike Zwerner, Sr. Vice President Business Development & Marketing for Interthinx.  Zwerner continued, “With FraudGuard, Empower clients have access to the most comprehensive and progressive evaluation tool available.  FraudGuard was designed to help reduce risk, increase pull through rates, process more loans with less resources and improve loan quality.”
