Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: VRNT), The Customer Engagement Company™,
announced today that VyStar
Credit Union has expanded its partnership with Verint to enhance the
security of member information in VyStar’s contact center.*
VyStar will be adding Verint Identity
Authentication and Fraud Detection to reduce operational costs and
protect member identity, while improving the overall experience of
VyStar’s over 655,000 members.
With today’s enhanced security on credit cards and online channels,
fraudsters are targeting contact centers as a more vulnerable entry
point into organizations to gather consumer information and potentially
steal their identity and money. At VyStar, multiple layers of protection
will be provided by Verint, starting with adaptive fraud analytics, to
perform real-time threat analysis prior to the call reaching an agent.
This includes analyzing both telephony and voice self-service behavioral
data, where unique characteristics and patterns often give clues ahead
of a fraudulent event. Once the call reaches a live agent, the voice is
further analyzed through Verint’s embedded voice biometrics, and the
customer can be authenticated seamlessly, or identified as a fraudster.
“A fraud situation is a highly emotionally-charged event, one that can
either reinforce member trust or potentially destroy it,” said Melissa
Thomas, Senior Vice President of Operations and Payments, VyStar Credit
Union. “Automating our fraud detection with Verint will help our fraud
department achieve incredible time savings over previous manual methods.
These new Verint solutions in our contact center can take pressure off
the employees by providing proactive fraud indicators in real-time to
prevent fraud activity before it begins, while ensuring an excellent

Verint’s John Goodson, senior vice president and general manager,
products, adds, “With Verint Branch
Security and Investigation offerings having combated fraud in
VyStar’s branch locations since 2015, we are thrilled that VyStar has
elevated its partnership with Verint to fight fraud in the contact
