BehavioSec and Gemalto partner to solve digital on-boarding for financial sector – New partnership to accelerate the digital transformation
Stockholm– June 27, 2017 – BehavioSec (www.behaviosec.com), the behavioral biometric company, today announced the details of a new partnership with Gemalto (www.gemalto.com), the world leader in digital security.
The partnership will provide customers with the combined benefits of leading end-user verification and digital identity solutions, delivering holistic authentication to the financial services sector. The first product to reach the market will be through the Ezio Assurance Hub, where BehavioSec decision intelligence will serve as a transparent verification layer.
Integrating BehavioSec’s unique behavioral biometric technology with Gemalto’s authentication solutions will provide scalable, flexible, and compliant protection for banks and financial institutions, while promoting a user-friendly and secure, online experience for consumers.
Neil Costigan, CEO of BehavioSec, comments: “Removing bottlenecks to achieve full digitalization of a business goes hand in hand with conquering online fraud, through a layered and collaborative approach. With BehavioSec’s unique behavioral technology, and Gemalto’s position as a global leader in digital security, our combined expertise will create a better and more secure experience for consumers across the world.”
Hakan Nordfjell, Senior Vice President, Digital Banking at Gemalto, adds: “We believe that user convenience is paramount to any digital banking service but also that it should not be at the expense of security. The Gemalto Assurance Hub uses machine learning to analyze end-user behavior which enables banks to adapt authentication procedures to each transaction. By adding BehavioSec’s behavioral technology we are able to provide a flexible hub of risk assessment tools that can easily add banks’ existing solutions but also allows them to evolve with the time and changing consumer behaviors.”
Many major financial institutions are already using BehavioSec and Gemalto services. Through this partnership, customers benefit from a single vendor relationship, including contractual, maintenance, support, and professional services.
