“Online banking fraud has reached a new level of sophistication where fraudsters are taking over the accounts of legitimate customers to commit fraud,” begins Pablo de la Riva, Founder and CEO of buguroo. In such a scenario, the traditional fraud prevention technologies, which focus on identifying the attack itself, are turning out to be inadequate. Identifying the face behind the attack is crucial to root out the threats. This is where Spanish-based antifraud solutions company, buguroo, is turning the corner for the banking industry. buguroo has recently pioneered a new functionality, included in their antifraud solution, called Fraudster Hunter—a visual, interactive smart tool—to identify the fraudsters already in your bank and investigate how they operate in your digital channels. Fraudster Hunter builds on buguroo’s ‘cyber profile,’ which is a unique biometric profile created for each user by tapping thousands of parameters relating to the customer’s behavioral biometrics (including smartphone and mouse movements, keystrokes, device profiling, geolocation and malware records). “We can guarantee that a user’s entire online session is completely secure and free from any manipulation or fraud,” mentions de la Riva.

With Fraudster Hunter’s ability to pinpoint and track potential fraudsters, buguroo has reinforced the already proven benefits that its solution offers in the fight against online fraud. de la Riva explains, “Every fraudster follows a pattern. Fraudster Hunter comprehensively assesses their actions to gain intelligence about the ‘modus operandi’ and hunt them down.” Through enhanced visibility, buguroo enables companies to discover unbeknown victims affected by fraud and stay one step ahead. In addition, the tool reveals cyberthreat scenarios, predicts possible malicious campaigns, and freezes fraud transaction in real-time. Alongside, it reduces the time spent on investigation and digital forensic analysis of any kind of cyberattacks.

As opposed to other anti-fraud detection solutions, buguroo takes a ‘greylisting approach,’ where it averts false positives and false negatives to detect even the most sophisticated threats.

As a powerful anti-spam technique, greylisting filters unnecessary traffic flowing into the network while driving compliance. With this approach, the company helps financial institutions overcome the limitations of traditional fraud defense tools and steer clear of the evolving threats. At the same time, buguroo’s technology also can accelerate compliance with PSD2 and RTS.

buguroo has been playing a pioneering role in helping the financial institutions around the world protect themselves and their customers from threats such as phishing, malware attacks, and account takeovers. A recent client success story involves a Spanish bank, with over 1,000 branches, providing online banking services to more than a million users. The client was looking for a solution that would provide them with increased visibility of the risks and threats that originate while customers browse or transact from devices that might have been infected. With buguroo, the bank was able to seamlessly discover transactions with high risk and freeze the ones that showed signs of being fraudulent.

Today, buguroo’s ability to detect sophisticated attacks in a short span of time has garnered it the recognition of being one of the fastest and most accurate fraud detection solutions in the market. For the future, the company is planning to expand its intuitive fraud detection solution’s reach across the globe. “With online fraud expected to multiply, both in number and sophistication, we are here to make it easier for businesses to secure themselves,” concludes de la Riva.
