EVA Voice Biometric Fraud Detector Gets an Upgrade

Allowing Organisations to Manage Fraud Seamlessly in Real-Time

[SYDNEY, NSW, January 2020] – Auraya announces today the release of an expanded set of capabilities for its EVA fraud detection solution. EVA Fraud Detector is used by organisations to provide real-time detection of fraudsters when they try to hack customer accounts or create new accounts.

The new capabilities includes a more robust real-time fraud detection, improved digital platform implementations and a new fraud detection management console interface. This new set of capabilities enables organisations to provide secure customer interactions while simplifying the process of detecting and managing fraudsters.

When a fraudster tries to impersonate the identity of a customer in the phone channel, EVA listens to the caller’s voice when interacting through the IVR, automated bots or contact centre agent conversations. If the speaker’s voice is the same voice that has been used on previously identified fraudster calls, then the conversation is flagged in real-time, allowing the organisation to take appropriate steps to prevent the fraud.

EVA can also be used for transactional activities in digital channels. Whether it’s on a website, digital app or automated bot, or even through a messenger or chat interface, when a fraudster endeavours to initiate a fraudulent activity, they will be asked to confirm the transaction by touching the microphone icon presented on the screen of the device and saying the random digits displayed. If the person doing the transaction is genuine, then this action provides a non-repudiable digital signature that allows the transaction to proceed. If the person doing the transaction is a fraudster, then EVA will detect their unique voice characteristics and allow the organisation to protect themselves from an attempted fraudulent attack.

Organisations can now use EVA’s Fraud Detector management console to manage the list of known fraudsters, listen to highlighted interactions, do analytics and create reports. The EVA Fraud Detector management console uses SAML 2.0 and OpenID Connect to maintain authentication and verification security.

The longer-term benefit of an EVA Fraud Detector solution is that once implemented it then deters fraudsters from further fraudulent attempts on the targeted organisation as they don’t want to have their voice recorded by the system; Not only do fraudsters go elsewhere Eva fraud detection provides organisations with the data that allows law enforcement agencies to prosecute fraudsters.
