“We are excited to join Jefferies as a partner, providing a robust Risk and Compliance ecosystem to support their global firm and diverse client base,” said Erkin Adylov, Founder and CEO of Behavox. “Behavox is committed to helping Jefferies constantly improve and expand the firm, while remaining compliant with regulatory ordinances and their commitment to risk management.”

The selection comes after a rigorous and competitive process consisting of multiple vendors and a proof of concept, in which Behavox demonstrated the highest capacity to reduce false positives, detect meaningful content, and provide the support and subject matter expertise that Jefferies requires. As the vendor of choice, Behavox will be replacing Jefferies’ current email supervision tool.

Marty DeMonte, Managing Director and CIO of Jefferies, noted, “Jefferies chose Behavox for their technology, responsiveness, and support model.”

Through machine learning algorithms based on 16 years of enforcement cases against traders and banks worldwide, Behavox’s software allows Senior Management and Risk and Compliance Officers to detect cases of market abuse, insider threats, collusion and reckless behavior in real time. This combination of cutting-edge technology, thought leadership, and industry collaboration, has allowed Behavox to create a Risk and Compliance ecosystem which transforms the way that firms conduct monitoring and supervise risk within their business.

“We look forward to partnering with Behavox – they have established themselves as a strategic technology solution when it comes to data analysis and regulation,” said Lauri Scoran, Jefferies’ Chief Compliance Officer. “The Compliance Supervision Platform Behavox developed further supports our regulatory and business requirements.”

Behavox provides an effective and scalable solution that delivers compliance with finance regulations such as Dodd-Frank, MAR, FCPA, SMR & MiFID II, and meets the requirements of the most exacting regulators (FINRA, CFTC, FCA, etc.).
