The announcement reflects FiVerity’s growing market momentum, with customer adoption, leading-edge innovation, and executive thought leadership in the anti-cyber fraud solutions segment. The company’s new product, SynthID Detect, helps banks, credit unions, credit card providers and other financial institutions fight synthetic identity fraud (SIF), the fastest-growing type of financial fraud there is today. FiVerity’s platform reduces cyber fraud losses while simultaneously streamlining customer onboarding processes to accelerate customer growth.
“FiVerity’s approach to fraud prevention through machine learning is unlike other industry solutions, by leveraging FiVerity’s feedback mechanism, we are able to train the models in real time to adapt to the continuously evolving nature of fraud,” said Justin Davis, Manager of Fraud and BSA Reporting at Digital Federal Credit Union, a national consumer lending institution. “Synthetic identities are not a new problem, but they are one lacking a real solution and FiVerity’s SynthID is just that. In our first six months using SynthID, it identified $2 million worth of fraud, of which 35% was overlooked by existing systems and processes. This has resulted in an overall lift in fraud prevention rates of more than ten percent.”
SynthID Detect uses FiVerity’s proprietary AI and machine learning technologies to “scale the analyst” by leveraging human experience for continuous improvement. It observes and captures strategies and tactics from expert business users to detect fraud and uncover a telltale pattern of financial crimes. The company’s products give customers the proactive and predictive fraud detection and prevention capabilities they need to keep up with fast-moving fraudsters.
“The enormous cyber fraud problem has become even worse during this COVID-19 pandemic,” said Greg Woolf, founder, and CEO of FiVerity. “The massive shift to online business operations in financial services has created a wider threat vector for cyber fraudsters. With SynthID Detect, our customers are finding and thwarting these criminals before they can do damage. While SIF is a great use case, it’s only the first of many cyber fraud challenges facing financial institutions, and we’re just getting started.”
The high incidence of cyber fraud causes significant friction for financial institutions while onboarding new customers as they execute their digital marketing strategies. FiVerity’s products also provide an indication of very low risk activity to reduce manual intervention for consumer applications, which significantly accelerates new account processing and customer growth.
