Gurucul will demonstrate Gurucul Fraud Analytics at Gartner Security & Risk Management Booth 961.

According to Gartner, “Online fraud detection is growing in complexity and demand, and its tools are being used for risk-based authentication and new account fraud prevention. Security and risk management leaders involved in online fraud detection should use machine-learning analytics and cloud-based deployment options.”

Gurucul Fraud Analytics goes beyond traditional solutions that are based on rules, signatures and patterns. To detect fraud early in the “Cyber Fraud Kill Chain”, Gurucul ingests huge volumes of data generated by users / entities across multiple channels from on-premise and cloud applications to identify anomalous and potentially fraudulent behavior that spans time, place, access and actions.

The Gurucul Fraud Analytics risk engine continuously scores this activity against historical behavior as well as dynamically created peer groups and generates risk prioritized alerts for investigation or to automate risk remediation response actions. Gurucul risk scores can be used by applications to enforce security policies or make real-time business decisions to prevent fraud before it occurs, such as introducing step-up authentication challenges.

“Recognition as a representative vendor in the Gartner Market Guide, we believe, validates why Global 1000 companies and government agencies rely on Gurucul to fight online fraud,” said Nilesh Dherange, CTO of Gurucul. “Our innovations in fraud prevention and security using machine learning and behavior analytics on big data enable customers to detect threats in real-time that evade traditional rules-based approaches.”
