Athletic clothing retailer The Finish Line Inc is to use Retail Decisions (ReD) Plc's risk management service, ebitGuard, for its e-commerce transactions.

A number of large-scale e-commerce retailers such as Wal-Mart, Buy.com, and Travelocity.com already use ReD's fraud prevention and payment processing services.

Finish Lines's e-commerce director, Kent Zimmerman said the service would allow the retailer to increase "the number of orders we accept, without compromising our protection against fraudulent transactions."

The Finish Line currently operates more than 560 stores in 46 states.
