NEW YORK, June 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BioCatch, the global leader in behavioral biometrics, proudly announced today that it has been selected as a winner of both Red Herring's Top 100 awards in Europe and North America, both prestigious lists honoring the year's most promising private technology ventures from across the globe.
"Receiving the Top 100 awards in both Europe and North America reflects the momentum we are seeing in market adoption for our solutions across the globe," said Eyal Goldwerger, CEO of BioCatch. "As more banking functions and payment solutions move to digital channels, behavioral biometrics are also becoming mainstream as both a way to prevent fraud, and a way to enable a better, frictionless, user experience. Today's fraudsters are savvy and constantly evolving, and our approach is unique in being able to change the rules of the game by knowing the user through its behavior and providing continuous authentication. This lets us stay ahead of threats, and intercept them even when they occur after initial authentication, providing real-time actionable fraud prevention. We are delighted to receive this recognition."
