The fraud challenges currently facing global financial institutions are extensive. From detecting scams through to synthetic identities, fraud detection in banking requires innovative solutions to deal with complex problems. Unfortunately, most traditional authentication and fraud prevention solutions are aimed at solving a specific problem – is someone logging in from a known device or is the password entered the correct one? These one dimensional solutions leave blind spots for criminals to exploit, coming in the form of remote access attacks, social engineering and malware.
In 2017, BioCatch was recognized by Frost & Sullivan for New Product Innovation in Biometric Authentication, highlighting the company’s position in the emerging behavioral biometrics landscape and its patented Invisible Challenges™ solution, which helps identify fraudsters without jeopardizing the user experience.
Digital transformation has taken its hold in payments, banking, commerce, and beyond. But both the rapid transformation of processes and the rate of consumer adoption present significant challenges for businesses. One of the biggest questions of our day is how do you verify customer identity in a way that prevents cybercrime without disrupting the user journey?
Traditional authentication solutions can be a major hindrance to user experiences. Stronger security simply doesn’t play well with ease of use for consumers.
In recent years, the global financial sector has experienced a significant surge in new types of fraud and cybercrime. Breaking it down to geographic regions, we see that these dynamics are influenced by a wide array of factors such as the political setting, financial practices, IT structures and the regulatory environment.
Our security walls aren’t as high as we think they are. There are holes, and cybercriminals know how to slip through them, undetected. Application fraud has become a number one problem for companies across all verticals. In 2016, more than 25% of identity theft fraud involved the use of stolen information to open new accounts.
