Fraud & identity Week in Review: Pindrop, InAuth, Turkcell & More

Security is front of mind for firms of all shapes and sizes. As innovation steers industry through this current phase of digital transformation, try as we may fraud and security issues continue to mount. The cat and mouse game is afoot, and with the weekend upon us, there’s no better time than the present to take a look back at the week that was in Fraud & Identity News: Time for the Week in Review.

Security is a constant battle of good versus evil. Sounds a touch dramatic but there’s no sugarcoating here. Cloud computing is making its presence felt in a big way, so the logical next step is securing the cloud and effective endpoint protection. A special guest contributed piece walks the community through ways to deliver peace of mind. The complete article is HERE.

A hurdle for security solutions is simply, getting in the way. What I mean is, organizations possessing the ability to do business securely in a frictionless manner. “Until recently, many of the fraud prevention tactics employed by organizations have added to, not reduced, customer friction across the buying cycle,” says Lynch, chief strategy officer, InAuth. TMC’s Paula Bernier brings you everything you need to know HERE.

Turkcell’s business in Belarus is unveiling a cloud-based security solution supported by Secucloud. The new service will offer protection to mobile users from malware, viruses and Trojans. “With Secucloud’s cloud-based security solution, our customers are protected from internet threats and do not need to worry about installing or constantly updating software,” said Dina Tsybulskaya, CEO at CJSC Belarusian Telecommunication Network. “This convenience is exactly what our customers expect from us.” All the details are HERE.

Also in the news this week, Pindrop announced the arrival of Pindrop Perfect 4.0, a multi-factor authentication and anti-fraud solution. “We examine the unique characteristics that are in the phone calls that come into call centers. We derive in our product tiny breaks in the audio that indicate VoIP packet lost, along with noise profiles that uniquely identify callers and their device. We have utilized our technology to analyze over 400 million calls and our Ph.D. research staff, with this version of Protect, have found a method to deliver about 10 times the clarity and insight into these calls. This is the ‘4K’ equivalent of our Phoneprinting technology,” says Matt Garland, Pindrop’s VP of Research. The full article is HERE.
