Behavioral biometrics threat-detection company BioCatch has selected Eyal Goldwerger to take the place of Benny Rosenbaum as CEO. The new appointment, the company states, is to guide BioCatch through a time of “significant growth” now that the company has signed several of the world’s largest banks as clients.
Goldwerger comes to the Israel-based company with experience as CEO of TargetSpot and XMPie, both of which have been successfully acquired. He is currently a chairman on the board of Ufora, an open-source software company, and serves as a board member of Galil Software, an R&D and Q&A outsourcing company.
BioCatch’s behavioral analytics helps prevent fraud by tracking how users interact with web and mobile applications. Throughout a client’s session, BioCatch posts what it calls Invisible Challenges that authenticate without interfering with the user experience.
At the close of 2015, the company reported that its behavioral biometrics authentication is monitoring more than 1 billion transactions per month to protect more than 33 million banking customers around the globe.
Founded in 2011, BioCatch debuted Invisible Challenges at FinovateFall 2014.
