October 29, 2013 - 

Verint Systems has announced that it will acquire Victrio, a voice biometrics company.

The terms of this deal have not been disclosed.

Verint specializes in analytics as well as software and hardware for security and surveillance markets. Victrio’s solutions combine passive voice biometrics and predictive analysis to detect fraud and authenticate users in real-time.

Earlier this year, Victrio was named as a “Cool Vendor in Security” by Gartner.

“We’re delighted to welcome Victrio to the Verint family and are enthusiastic about what the addition of its technology brings to the existing Verint fraud and risk analytics portfolio,” Elan Moriah, president of Verint Enterprise Intelligence Solutions and Video and Situation Intelligence said. “This acquisition extends our offering and introduces a host of advanced capabilities that will enable us to offer our customers an even more comprehensive solution to address fraud and identity authentication problems head on.”

According to Verint, this acquisition bolsters the company’s existing fraud and risk analytics category, which also includes facial recognition, speech and data analytics and desktop and process analytics.
