News : Nuance Teams with BioCatch to Expand Fraud Detection Across Digital Customer Care Channels
San Francisco, CA, USA, Feb 14, 2017 -- Nuance Communications, Inc. announced from the RSA Conference that it has partnered with BioCatch, the global provider in behavioral biometrics to deliver continuous authentication on the web and mobile as part of the Nuance Security Suite solution. Through this partnership, Nuance is expanding its Security Suite to take fraud prevention beyond the contact center by combining digital inputs to more accurately detect fraud across multiple channels in the FraudMiner platform.
Integrating behavioural biometrics data strengthens Nuance’s fraud prevention capabilities further.
"We are pleased to partner with BioCatch to bring enhanced fraud detection strategies to our Security Suite through behavioral biometrics," said Robert Weideman, general manager and Executive Vice President, Enterprise Division, Nuance. "While we have a long legacy of successful, innovative biometrics deployments for authentication and to combat fraud, this partnership allows us to expand our fraud prevention offerings beyond the contact center to digital channels, in alignment with our omni-channel vision."
"In today’s digital world, hackers have figured out how to bypass the initial authentication and piggyback on existing logins," said Eyal Goldwerger, Chief Executive Officer of BioCatch. "One of the only ways to detect this is through continuous authentication and by extension, behavioral biometrics, because it works in the background, passively, without disrupting the user experience. By bringing together our behavioral biometrics and Nuance’s voice biometrics, we are able to solve this problem and secure transactions holistically across multiple channels. We are very pleased to be partnering with Nuance to provide a joint solution to the marketplace that addresses this rampant cyber threat, and to address the growing demand from the market today for a single suite to handle fraud prevention."
