Microsoft’s customer base gains access to behavioral biometrics, while BioCatch uses the scalability, reliability and agility of Microsoft Azure to drive application development and shape new digital identity strategies
NEW YORK — November 19, 2019 — BioCatch, a global leader in behavioral biometrics, today announced the availability of its platform via the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online portal providing applications and services for use on Microsoft Azure. By choosing the “Transact” option, customers can now take immediate advantage of the BioCatch platform, contracting directly through the Azure Marketplace for rapid deployment and implementation.
BioCatch’s behavioral biometrics platform uses machine-learning artificial intelligence (AI) techniques to passively collect over 2,000 parameters of physical and cognitive user interactions across both web and mobile channels. By analyzing these parameters in context, BioCatch extracts powerful online behavioral insights and applies them to various use cases across the digital identity lifecycle. These use cases include detecting stolen or synthetic identities in account onboarding, authenticating users at login, detecting fraudulent account takeover attempts, and recognizing increasingly sophisticated social engineering scams.
“We are extremely excited that BioCatch is now available for direct purchase through the Microsoft Azure Marketplace,” said Bill Sytsma, Chief Revenue Officer of BioCatch. “By joining the Azure Marketplace and enabling the ‘transact’ feature, BioCatch’s behavioral biometrics technology now becomes readily available to the vast community of Microsoft enterprise customers who are looking for innovative ways to manage risk and user experience in the digital channel. Via the Azure Marketplace, contracting and implementing BioCatch becomes easier, cutting the time it takes to activate the service, for which demand is rapidly growing.”
In addition to joining the Azure Marketplace, BioCatch’s capabilities will be showcased in Microsoft’s new Executive Briefing Center (EBC) in Singapore. At the EBC, enterprise customers receive tailored briefings with Microsoft’s team who develop comprehensive solutions enabled by leading technology providers like BioCatch.
Sajan Parihar, Senior Director, Microsoft Azure Platform at Microsoft Corp., said, “We’re pleased to welcome BioCatch to the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, which gives our partners great exposure to cloud customers from around the globe. Azure Marketplace offers world-class quality experiences from trusted global partners with solutions tested to work seamlessly with Azure.”
