News : Pindrop Security Launches Fraud Detection System
Atlanta, GA, Feb 20, 2014 -- Pindrop Security, a provider in phone fraud prevention and call center authentication for banks and enterprise call centers, announces the availability of Pindrop Security's Fraud Detection System version 2.0, which adds voice biometrics to Pindrop's patent-pending Phoneprinting™ technology.
Phone fraudsters are increasingly using social engineering tactics, leveraging publicly available information to manipulate and trick call center representatives and customer service agents who verify callers with traditional solutions into believing that they are someone else.
Pindrop Security's FDS 2.0 integrates voice biometrics, which allows the matching of voice signatures to identify a caller, with phoneprinting, which analyzes the entire audio spectrum of a call to identify indicators of attack, including Caller ID spoofing, risky callers and call origin locations, suspicious call characteristics and callers with poor reputations. The integration enables organizations to more quickly identify and re-route fraudulent phone calls to their appropriate anti-fraud teams, reducing the likelihood of a call center employee granting a fraudster access to an individual's financial account.
"With attackers increasingly unable to crack the robust cyber defenses at most institutions, more and more are moving to the phone channel to gain access to financial accounts," said Vijay Balasubramaniyan, co-founder and CEO, Pindrop Security. "The integration of voice biometrics into the Pindrop solution is a crucial layer of defense that will help ensure that financial institutions and call centers can trust that the person who calls is who they say they are."
