Tuesday 11 December 2018 10:55 CET | News

ACI Worldwide has teamed up with BioCatch, a behavioural biometrics provider, to protect customers from online and mobile banking fraud such as account takeover.

In addition to machine learning and advanced analytics capabilities from ACI’s UP Payments Risk Management solution, banks around the world will now benefit from BioCatch’s real-time behavioural assessments to identify a wide range of cyber threats.

Founded in 2011 by experts in neural science research, machine learning and cybersecurity, BioCatch’s patented approach analyses the way users interact with online applications and devices and introduces subtle tests known as “invisible challenges” into their online banking sessions. Users subconsciously respond to these challenges, without sensing any change in their experience. The response provides additional behavioural data that can be used to distinguish a real user from an imposter, whether human or robotic.
