BioCatch is a digital identity company that delivers behavioral biometrics, analyzing human-device interactions to protect users and precious data. Founded in 2011 by experts in neural science research, machine learning and cybersecurity, BioCatch is used by banks and other enterprises to reduce online fraud and protect against cyber threats, without compromising user experience. With an unparalleled patent portfolio and deployments at major companies worldwide that cover tens of millions of users to date, BioCatch has established itself as the industry leader for behavioral biometrics.
Behavioral biometrics is a breakthrough cybersecurity technology that identifies people by how they do what they do, rather than by what they are (e.g., fingerprint, face), what they know (e.g. secret question, password) or what they have (e.g. token, SMS one-time code). Behavioral biometrics measures and analyzes patterns in human activities. Historically, these included keystroke patterns, gait, signature and the like. Today’s advanced behavioral biometric techniques capture an array of human interactions between a device and an application, such as hand-eye coordination, pressure, hand tremors, navigation, scrolling and other finger movements, etc.
BioCatch’s behavioral biometric solutions selects 20 unique features from its 2,000 behavioral profiling metrics to authenticate a user — without any disruption in the user’s experience.
With cyber-attackers becoming much more sophisticated, security measures must get smarter too. The key is to implement security measures that continuously monitor and test the authenticity of users in ways that are difficult to replicate. Many experts and market leaders agree: behavioral biometric profiling is the only effective way to achieve this level of security.
