Uniken to showcase authentication solutions at Money 20/20 conference

October 20, 2016 - 

Cybersecurity firm Uniken is demonstrating its line of authentication solutions at the 2016 Money 20/20 conference being held October 23 to 26 at The Venetian in Las Vegas.

Uniken’s REL-ID family of authentication solutions is built on its patented security protocol that combines identity and channel to verifies the user, application, and device posture and identity before granting access to applications.

At the conference, Uniken is announcing a new feature of REL-ID and REL-IDverify offerings which expands on Uniken’s existing channel and device level continuous authentication verification capability.

The feature further allows a combination of username/passwords, fingerprint and FIDO compliant biometrics to validate any combination of application, user and transaction type — all without a third party involved.

As a result, organizations can mix and match continuous authentication levels and approaches, based on the unique needs of a particular transaction, user, device and geolocation.

For example, higher value transactions may prompt the user for a voice authentication or more secure biometric, while lower risk transactions may only require the use of the iPhone’s TouchID.

Any transaction or session can be stepped-up or revalidated based on a transaction request or several continuously checked parameters such as geolocation.

“We are very pleased to showcase our innovative REL-ID connectivity technology at the 2016 Money 20/20 conference,” said Uniken CEO Bimal Gandhi. “Firms across the banking and financial services industry demand a safe and secure alternative to complex, vulnerable pin and password protocols. We are excited to demonstrate how REL-ID can support any biometric or advanced credentials, while strengthening the underlying secure connectivity of the entire network.”
