Atlanta, GA and Reston, VA, USA, Aug 16, 2016 -- Pindrop, a provider in voice-fraud prevention and authentication, announced a partnership with Carahsoft Technology Corp., a government IT solutions provider. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as Pindrop's master government aggregator, making the company's phone channel authentication and anti-fraud detection solutions available to the public sector via Carahsoft's GSA schedule.
"Carahsoft has an excellent reputation for bringing innovative technology to the government marketplace and we are excited to partner with them to expand the application of our uniquely smart anti-fraud detection solutions," said Eric Forseter, Vice President of Federal and Public Sector at Pindrop. "With criminals and terrorists using sophisticated social engineering to gain access to classified information, law enforcement and public sector call centers need a security solution that can discerningly identify high risk callers from legitimate ones."
"With the addition of Pindrop to our cybersecurity portfolio, we are now able to offer our government customers and reseller partners with anti-fraud call center technology that discovers fraudsters almost immediately," said Brian O'Donnell, Vice President of Security Solutions at Carahsoft. "By detecting threats sooner and with more accuracy, government agencies are able to reduce fraud losses through the phone channel and authentication expenses while improving the overall caller experience."
