Guardian Analytics® Offers Financial Institutions Concerned With Recent SWIFT Breaches Real-Time Alerts To Suspected Intrusions

Mountain View, CA —May 17, 2016 — Guardian Analytics, the market leader in behavioral analytics solutions and machine learning for preventing banking fraud, today highlighted the solution to mitigating risk associated with the recent SWIFT breaches. Criminals continue to prove their ability and sophistication to use malware to breach bank systems, stealing hundreds of millions of dollars, proving that rules-based systems are no longer adequate protection for banks against malware attacks.
“Rather than using rules that look for specific malware, fraud indicators or fraud patterns, which are all changing too rapidly for most institutions to keep up, behavioral analytics combines knowledge about fraud with activity monitoring and anomaly detection to determine if the behavior is expected and legitimate,” said Steve Schramm, Vice President of Engineering and Network Operations.
With patented behavioral analytics technology, Guardian Analytics helps financial institutions proactively detect fraudulent transactions before they leave the bank by modeling activity and detecting anomalies for both originators and recipients to defeat today’s criminals and thieves.
