Fraudsters know the call center is not as well-defended as other potential avenues in most enterprises. As network and endpoint security technology has evolved over the years, fraudsters have adapted and evolved to continue to obtain the information they want. For enterprises that hold customer data or assets – protecting the call center is key.
Defending the phone channel presents various challenges, especially due to the high involvement of human interaction. Fraudsters utilize social engineering to influence call center agents and trick them into granting access to information or accounts. With an estimated $14 billion in annual phone fraud loss, it is clear fraudsters know how to maneuver around legacy security solutions.
Now, Amazon Web Services is offering a disruptive solution, Amazon Connect, a cloud-based contact center service based on the same contact center solution used at over 50 internal Amazon businesses by as many as 70,000+ simultaneous agents on a daily basis.
