Visa rolls out behavioural biometrics in Europe

Visa is introducing behavioural biometrics and device fingerprinting across its European network of financial institutions, payment service providers, and merchants.

The financial services corporation has chosen Callsign as its biometric digital and device intelligence identity provider.

The partnership will mean banks, merchants, and the wider card network will have access to authentication solutions which help to positively identify consumers using behavioural biometrics.

The technology uses machine learning techniques and combines behavioural biometrics, device intelligence and geo-location with multi-factor authentication to help authenticate users’ identities.

"The need to accurately identify users online for digital payments and online banking is critical due to the shift to online transactions in the past 18 months,” said Amir Nooriala, chief commercial officer, Callsign. “Financial services organisations are looking for the technology that provides the most secure, accurate and seamless user experience to incorporate into their solutions.

"We are pleased to be joining the Visa Fintech Partner Connect to work with Europe’s leading FinTechs.”
