BehavioSec

OverviewSuggest Edit

BehavioSec provides a layer of security that lets your customers authenticate themselves through the unique ways they type, swipe and hold their devices. You can stop fraud, prevent account takeover, and keep user experiences safe, all without getting in your customers' way. Behavioral biometrics uses continuous machine learning and realtime feedback to create a risk score, allowing you to separate good users from bad actors by detecting anomalies in behavior. Because our solution provides intelligence based on statistical variances in behavior, BehavioSec doesn't pose the same data breach risk as some services do. Even if an attacker gains access to the behavioral data, it won't be useful, which means you can add data security without creating a privacy risk. We're making seamless and secure the new normal.
