BehavioSecLogo_FinDEVr

BehavioSec is a leader in frictionless behavioral user verification & authentication. BehavioSec examines how you interact with a website or mobile device to provide a frictionless layer in web fraud prevention.

Keynote: Realtime Scoring of Behavioural Biometrics via Web Services
Presenting our web & mobile SDK, we deep dove into the back end services and show how easy it is to instrument a web site or mobile app with frictionless behavioral biometrics to add a new layer of security.
In an interactive session we are demonstrating a number of use cases of both real-time scoring and ‘after the fact’ biometrics forensics. We open up the client SDK to show the APIs, file formats, etc. In parallel we expose the typical integration points to see the architecture and the power the backend web service APIs offer developers to represent additional transaction security in a way that suits your organization’s business needs.
Why it’s great for developers:
  • Frictionless web or mobile fraud prevention via behavioral biometrics
  • Lite touch integration to deliver a new layer in security for web and mobile platforms

3. A PCI Level 1 compliant payment gateway that works with all major processors/merchant accounts
This allows developers to easily process swiped credit card payments within their own apps without the complexity of typical payment integrations. By using the CardFlight SDK, developers can fully customize their user experience and keep control of their product, while being able to integrate payment data into their other back-end systems (CRM, inventory management, analytics and reporting, etc.)
The CardFlight SDK and gateway is compatible with merchant accounts from leading processors, including Braintree, Chase Paymentech, Global Payments, First Data, Stripe, TSYS and Vantiv.
