Biometric solutions firm SecuredTouch has revealed a new product that targets bots with behavioural biometrics.

SecuredTouch wrote in a statement that its behavioral biometrics-based HUMANOBOT detects non-human behavior generated by bots, malware, and automated scripts and stops fraud-focused emulators within mobile applications.

The solution can analyze human interaction with their mobile devices to continuously discover non-human device activity, wrote the firm. 

The system recognizes non-human behavior like scripted attacks, malware, and bots using advanced machine learning, correlating data from different sensors to differentiate between human and non-human and to differentiate between real devices and emulators. It detects and sends alerts about attacks from emulators and virtual machines by recognizing suspicious mobile traffic. 

“Emulators and bots are being used to defraud companies of millions of dollars,” says Yair Finzi, SecuredTouch CEO. “Stopping them delivers immediate ROI because of its direct impact on fraud prevention without adding friction for legitimate users.”

SecuredTouch’s solution delivers push\pull notifications during suspicious events like bot attacks or when a session’s risk crosses a certain threshold, stopping breaches. Even if the malicious actor appears to be a legitimate user, SecuredTouch continuous monitoring quickly detects compromised user credentials, strengthening protection.
