We want to be a global benchmark in the development of highly effective, disruptive antifraud solutions for our customers. It helps applications – web and mobile device – ensure that users are who they say they are and that they are not being manipulated. Ensuring those two things is what lets you be sure there is no fraud, as fraud always entails an alteration in one of these two points. For this purpose we use techniques such as deep learning, behavioral biometrics and data analytics, which are a very positive trend and have a great future, and not only in the online fraud field.
