Nok Nok Labs, Persistent to provide multi-factor biometric authentication for apps

April 11, 2017 - 

Nok Nok Labs is partnering with Persistent Systems to provide multi-factor biometric authentication features for app services, making the login process more convenient and secure for consumers.

Teaming up with Nok Nok Labs is Persistent’s latest move towards building out its digital transformation partner ecosystem with startups and technology innovators.

Last month, Persistent Systems signed a development rights agreement with USAA to gain access to several patented security solutions for financial services which are currently in use by USAA.

Through this latest partnership, Persistent Systems and Nok Nok Labs are helping software-driven businesses improve their overall digital security experience.

Nok Nok Labs provides a seamless and secure authentication infrastructure for mobile and web applications, using standard-based solutions that include support for the FIDO Protocols.

“In our view, a user authenticates to a device, and a device authenticates into a network – security is that simple,” said Ramesh Kesanupalli, founder of Nok Nok Labs and FIDO visionary. “These two layers of abstraction allow you to attach biometrics – a blink into a camera, touch on a fingerprint sensor, or spoken phrase into the microphone – which are, absolutely, unique to the user and offer a wonderful level of privacy. It’s also a much more elegant and easy user experience. Working with Persistent, we’re helping enterprises securely scale their apps and digital experiences.”

Nok Nok’s Unified Authentication Infrastructure is intended to disrupt the underlying framework on which current authentication solutions depend, making it ideal for modern computing requirements and the Internet of Things.

“Collaborating with innovators like Nok Nok Labs enables us to extend compelling and cutting-edge products and solutions to our enterprise customers, strengthening our technology and partner ecosystem for digital transformation,” said Munjay Singh, president of services at Persistent Systems. “As a preferred partner for FIDO integration Nok Nok Labs strongly complements other recent agreements Persistent has entered into with industry leaders to develop authentication and security solutions.”

Previously reported, Nok Nok Labs launched a premium edition of its Nok Nok S3 Authentication Suite (S3 Suite), which the company calls the first unified platform that enables organizations to leverage FIDO standards-based authentication.
