FAQ


We’re a company with roots in academia and engineering in northern Sweden. The core research comes from students at Luleå University, who invented the BehavioSec technology back in 2006. These young engineers then teamed up with senior researchers and security executives to launch it internationally. We still have our research and engineering office in Luleå, but now we also have operations in Stockholm, the US, the UK, Germany, and Hong Kong.

Behavioral biometrics is the measurement of the human behavioral characteristics that are unique to each individual. These include things like gesture, voice, keystroke dynamics, and mouse movements. BehavioSec learns how each user behaves, then creates metrics that can confirm that they are who they say they are. With behavioral biometrics, it’s not enough for someone to get hold of your credentials.

Because your behavioral profile isn’t useful to anyone but you, and is almost impossible to spoof, it also makes behavioral biometrics safer than physical biometrics. You can find out more about how it works here

Our technology is already protecting millions of accounts from financial fraud every day. We help to secure over 1 billion transactions per year for our existing clients, mostly in the financial and banking industries.

This is the easiest part. When you try the BehavioSec demo, you’ll need to complete at least 10 ‘transactions’ to build up your proile so that you can see how the technology learns your behavior and uses it to protect you. But in real-world situations, the technology collects that behavior from users passively, in the background. They don’t need to do any special logging in or training to benefit from the extra security.

No, it isn’t. It’s based around an algorithm and works with your risk engine. BehavioSec produces a score that is fed into your risk engine, and you decide what qualifies as an adequate score to authenticate a user, based on a combination of other risk factors, including things like the sensitivity of the action the user is trying to perform.

Dashboard is a complimentary UI, which can be very helpful to visualize fraud in a pilot or production scenario.

No because the computer is entering the data and real behaviometrical analysis is not possible then. In a real world scenario all data within a session, e.g. logging in and then entering a transaction, is used for continuous authentication. So the more data you enter the better the system is at recognizing you.
