Crossmatch has partnered with BehavioSec to integrate behavioural biometrics into its DigitalPersona 2.3 composite authentication solution, the companies announced Monday.
BehavioSec’s keyboard capture product is incorporated as an extra authentication layer in DigitalPersona 2.3, in addition to the one-time passwords, PIN, contact or contactless cards and fingerprints which were already available as authentication factors for customizable solutions based on the organization’s preference.
“We selected BehavioSec’s platform because they are singularly focused on behavioral biometrics and have well-established and proven technology that already serves more than 35 million end users,” noted Jeff Carpenter, director of identity and access management at Crossmatch. “The addition of their technology to DigitalPersona’s composite authentication mix offers great added value to customers who continue to look for ways to mitigate their exposure to cybersecurity breach.”
BehavioSec’s technology builds a user profile based on typing behaviour such as press, flight, and sequence parameters which are compiled and analyzed over time to boost security with passive biometric factors that do not affect the user experience, according to the announcement.
“Crossmatch DigitalPersona is a long-standing, reputable market leader in authentication technology,” added Neil Costigan, CEO of BehavioSec. “With this partnership, Crossmatch expands the flexibility of its platform and BehavioSec expands the reach and pervasiveness of its behavioral analytics engine into a new commercial market.”
As previously reported, Crossmatch formed a reseller partnership with Oxford Computer Group in September to offer biometrics products to Microsoft customers.
