BioCatch was founded in 2011 by experts in neural science, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and cyberterrorism. The newly-founded company had a significant mission: to address next-generation digital identity challenges by focusing on online user behavior rather than static authentication measures, like passwords or endpoint security. They discovered an untapped goldmine.
Powerful behavioral insights — gleaned from the analysis of more than 2,000 physical and cognitive behavioral parameters — were able to support different use cases across the digital identity lifecycle. The technology enabled the holy grail of the modern digital era — seamless and secure online experiences. Behavioral biometrics, a technology used to identify people based on their behavioral parameters, was born.
BioCatch founder Avi Turgeman began pursuing a theory that people interact with machines in unique, measurable ways while serving in military intelligence. Drawing on years of experience exploring white-hat hacking, system vulnerability management and cyberterrorist operations, Turgeman turned his attention to online fraudsters and their identifiable signatures, co-founding BioCatch with Benny Rosenbaum.
In developing their AI-driven platform to passively identify both human and non-human behaviors online, BioCatch upended the paradigm of having to choose between security and convenience. Today, the company continues its commitment to innovation through an unparalleled IP portfolio of more than 60 granted or pending patents.
The BioCatch platform is deployed by major banks and other global enterprises to help manage their digital identity challenges. The technology prevents new account fraud, authenticates online users, prevents account takeover fraud and detects vishing scams, generating impressive returns on investment that come from catching more fraud as well as reducing false positives and unnecessary escalations.
BioCatch has been recognized for its industry leadership and cutting-edge approach to behavioral biometrics and digital identity in the CB Insights AI 100, One World Identity Leading Innovators in Identity, Deloitte Technology Fast 500, Florin Awards for Best Innovation in Securing Transactions and more.
