Our Company

AnimaTech is a cybersecurity company that delivers behavioral biometrics analyzing human-device interactions to protect users and data. Banks, enterprises and governments will be able to use the latest AnimaTech technology to significantly reduce online fraud and protect against a variety of cyber threats, without compromising the user experience.

Account fraud is taking a toll on banks and consumer confidence, through data breaches, social engineering and targeted malware. Fraudsters are able to acquire personal information required to access existing accounts with ease.

 

At the same time, a new generation of techniques including Man-in-the-Browser attacks, data injection and manipulation, RAT-in-the-Browser attacks and spoofing, are making fraud more difficult to detect. Behavioral Biometrics makes online businesses safe and more readily available. With less fraud and less user friction, organizations can feel confident that they are providing their customers with increased security and a positive user experience.
