buguroo becomes Revelock as it Changes the Game of Online Fraud Prevention
Company announces new Advisory Board and Fraud Detection & Response Platform; Pioneers Behavioural Biometrics & Hybrid AI with Active Defense approach to fighting fraud
21 April 2021 – buguroo, a pioneer in behavioural biometric-based online fraud prevention, today announced it is changing its name to Revelock to reflect the company’s commitment to not just reveal fraud, but also preemptively respond to and block attacks. Revelock’s mission focuses on dramatically advancing the fight against fraud by leveraging behavioural biometrics and hybrid AI to “Know Your User” (KYU), continuously verify their BionicID™ digital fingerprint and prevent account takeover by RATs, zero-day malware, bots, phishing and social engineering scams.
“Losses due to stolen personally identifiable information and credentials will grow to $635.4 billion USD by 2023” said Aite Group Research Director, Julie Conroy. “Revelock’s innovative account takeover solution can help financial institutions keep pace with the constantly evolving threats, and achieve their goals to stay top-of-wallet, improve operational efficiencies and reduce fraud.”
“We were pioneers in using behavioural biometrics to fight fraud,” said Pablo de la Riva, CEO & Founder, Revelock. “This is a major milestone for the company as we once again lead the industry with an Active Defense approach and automation of both fraud detection and response.”
The company has also announced a new Advisory Board, made up of industry veterans in digital identities, payments, fraud and financial crime.
“Fraud teams need a proactive, “always on” platform to prevent tenacious adversaries from taking over user accounts,” said Monica Pal, cybersecurity industry veteran and Revelock Advisory Board Chair. “Revelock provides a continuous, adaptive solution to silently verify authentic users while blocking bad actors again and again, making it too frustrating and expensive for these attackers to continue their attempts.”
The company also unveiled the Revelock Fraud Detection & Response (FDR) Platform, updating and enhancing capabilities to protect against more threats and further reduce the operational costs of fighting fraud. Find out more.
“Revelock’s focus on training their hybrid AI systems with behavioural biometric signals to “Know Your User” is a game changer in the industry,” said Alex Doll, General Partner Ten Eleven Ventures. “At every sign-in, the Revelock platform quietly and continuously interprets new user signals, allowing banks to verify customers without impacting their digital experience. Bad actors can also be identified, giving security teams full visibility and enhanced defence capabilities. It’s a powerful new tool in the fraud-fighting arsenal and one that we are very excited to help bring to market.”
Revelock enables financial services and fintech companies to reveal and respond to online identity impersonation & manipulation attacks without hindering the customer experience. Protecting more than 50 million banking customers worldwide, the Revelock Fraud Detection & Response (FDR) Platform combines behavioural biometrics, network and device assessment with hybrid AI and Deep Learning to create a BionicID™ and continuously Know Your User (KYU), spot bad actors and mitigate risk regardless of the type of attack.
