Social Biometrics™

Peoples' online behavior is part of who they are, creating a hard-to-replicate biometric pattern. Socure's Social Biometrics™ focuses on the strength of social behaviors across networks to assert online identity authenticity. This patent-pending solution combines artificial intelligence, proprietary machine learning algorithms and social behavior analysis to detect if an ID is authentic, a fraudster or a bot.
