36 Percent of Consumer Scams Begin with a Phone Call.
Did you know, last year, 27 million Americans lost $7.4 billion in phone fraud attacks? As technologies like VoIP, Caller-ID spoofing, and voice-altering tools become more mature, phone fraud is only getting easier. Yet, there has been little to no progress made for security over the phone in the last 40 years. Pindrop Labs is here to change that.
Threat Intelligence for Audio & Telecommunications
Pindrop Labs is focused on threats and vulnerabilities in the audio and telecommunications realms. This area, traditionally neglected from a security perspective, is increasingly favored by attackers for reconnaissance, exploitation, account takeover, and other attacks. Pindrop Labs’ research falls into two main areas: phone fraud prevention and securing the increasingly ubiquitous voice interface. Phone fraud prevention includes security for call centers, telecommunications infrastructure, and phone-reliant systems, organizations, and consumers. Securing voice interfaces includes providing authentication, threat detection, and fraud prevention for voice-enabled infrastructure.
