Nethone fraud prevention suite with behavioral biometrics selected by eSky Group
Air travel websites eSky and eDestinos have selected a fraud prevention suite from Nethone to provide in-depth user profiling, device fingerprinting, behavioral biometrics and advanced machine learning detect fraud and reduce chargebacks as they expand their services in Latin America and beyond.
Poland-based Nethone provides a variety of custom fraud prevention models, collecting over 5,000 data points, including behavior biometrics and patterns, and analyzing sessions in real-time to make transaction legitimacy assessments and recommendations, according to the announcement. The models work entirely in the background, and use machine learning to adapt to changes in criminal operations.
“We are proud that eSky has placed their trust in our expertise and technology,” said Hubert Rachwalski, CEO, Nethone. “Fighting fraud in travel is a challenging mission. Combating travel fraud in Latin America, the most fraud-prone region of the world, is even more demanding. Therefore, I believe that eSky could not have chosen better. Our team has extensive experience in creating AI-based FDP solutions for businesses operating in this diversified, rapidly evolving part of the globe and the travel industry has always been one of our core areas of interest.”
“As a global, rapidly expanding OTA, we choose reliable partners who, besides being top-class experts in their fields, also deeply understand our business, goals and specific, unique market requirements,” said Grzegorz Kwiecień, COO, eSky Group. “While expanding at an outstanding pace, increasing sales, keeping chargebacks at bay and, at the very same time, avoiding false positives, is crucial. We’ve been testing many different anti-fraud tools recently. Considering Nethone’s spotless track record and the results of our recent POC project, I can tell that this is the right partner for the job.”
BioCatch CEO Howard Edelstein recently said that increasing awareness has led to a race in the behavioral biometrics market, and Gartner predicted that on-device AI will enable behavioral biometrics to replace many passwords and active authentications on smartphones.
