Kount’s integration with BehavioSec highlighted at its annual user conference
Kount announced the integration of the latest version of the BehavioSec behavioral biometrics solution BehavioSense into its fraud management products. The integration with BehavioSec was highlighted yesterday at its annual user conference, Kount Summit 2018.
Kount’s customers, which include banks, payment service providers, mobile apps, merchants, and digital businesses, can now use the latest version of BehavioSense to authenticate users based on their online behaviors and interactions. BehavioSense’s passive behavioral biometrics verify a user’s identity by monitoring how they naturally interact with their device through keystroke dynamics, touch and mouse motion, and other behaviors.
BehavioSense complements Kount’s broader fraud detection platform and technologies, mitigates identify fraud, and allows customers instant identity verification without impacting the user experience.
“As fraud continues to evolve, fraud prevention requires a multi-layered approach that incorporates a variety of technologies,” explained Rich Stuppy, COO at Kount. “BehavioSense’s passive behavioral biometrics extend Kount’s overall solution and offer additional capabilities in bot detection and known user verification. Introducing passive biometrics as a fraud deterrent aligns with the industry’s movement to provide certainty in every digital interaction.”
BehavioSense’s aggregated analysis is fed directly within Kount’s customer-facing dashboard and decision engine. BehavioSense categorizes information pertaining to the user as well as confidence of the transaction. Kount consolidates BehavioSense’s information and presents the fraud manager with a simple mechanism to stop bots and allow known users a frictionless experience.
In January BehavioSec announced it had raised a $17.5 million Series B investment led by Trident Capital Cybersecurity.
