Balancing security and customer experience is vital
By leveraging the right technology, brands can build no-compromise user experiences that balance safety with ease of use.
As digital acceleration continues, companies are trying to balance increasing digital vulnerability and ever-changing customer expectations. When done effectively, there’s an opportunity to use smart tools to meet those challenges.
From a user perspective, when creating an account, new customers often run into friction. The same goes for logging into an account. Returning users face complex login processes that can result in frustration. Companies, on the other hand, deal with the increasing costs of fake accounts, account takeovers, and false information. These issues can skew critical performance data, put systems at risk, and erode budding mutual trust.
Brands know that protecting customers is more important than ever — but building healthy revenue will always be at the forefront of organizations' minds. Ultimately, businesses are tasked with building a user experience that prioritizes both.
42% of brands say their top customer engagement challenge in 2023 is finding a balance between security and customer experience.
