Company bio

We’re re-humanizing technology with every world we open. Pindrop was built to silence fraudsters. That’s no small feat. But perhaps even more than muting hackers, we are focused on how our technology can amplify new opportunities for businesses and the human beings they serve.  It all started when founder Vijay Balasubramaniyan was traveling in India and tried to order a new suit from a local tailor. His bank flagged the transaction as suspicious — but neither party could prove his identity over the phone. And so, as is so often the case, technology was doing the exact opposite of its intent: placing digital barriers between genuine, human moments. Pindrop was founded to ensure that this never happens again. From revolutionizing the call center to re-imagining how we interact with our smart devices, Pindrop’s core mission has never wavered: to bring security, identity, and intelligence to every voice interaction.
