This national Voice Bank will result in the use of stronger biometrics, like voice, to help businesses curb fraud and identity theft and therefore alleviate the growing concerns around information security disciplines.
Voice biometrics is being adopted globally by companies, especially those with large contact centre operations, because it offers faster, improved authentication, a better customer experience and a reduction in fraud. TransUnion’s offering is accessible via a hosted pay-per-use solution, enabling the benefits of voice biometrics to the local market.
