Gartner Report: Secure the Contact Centre with Phoneprinting

Fraudsters are becoming increasingly aggressive and sophisticated in how they target businesses. And the contact centre is often the weakest link.

According to a new report by Gartner, contact centres are often overlooked by fraud prevention strategies and technology budgets. The channel is often underprepared for the risk fraudsters pose, which leads to lost revenue, longer call times and unhappy customers.

The report outlines:

  • How traditional authentication methods like Caller ID are inadequate in the face of attackers’ techniques.
  • How call centres can reduce fraud, save money and decrease call times with technologies like Phoneprinting.
  • How biometric voice recognition, behavioural analytics, and further staff training can protect your business from attacks.
