We have utilized our technology to analyze over 400 million calls and our Ph.D. research staff, with this version of Protect, have found a method to deliver about 10 times the clarity and insight into these calls. This is the ‘4K’ equivalent of our Phoneprinting technology,” says Matt Garland, Pindrop’s VP of Research. The full article is HERE.
