SecuredTouch behavioral biometric technology available in IBM’s MobileFirst Foundation


IBM’s MobileFirst Foundation is now offering SecuredTouch’s behavioral biometric technology as a primary authentication option, according to a report by Financial IT.

MobileFirst Foundation provides scalable, time-tested enterprise mobile middleware that can be deployed on premises or on the cloud.

SecuredTouch technology provides a risk-based authentication by analyzing human-device interaction.

By integrating SecuredTouch technology into MobileFirst Foundation, IBM customers can implement behavioral biometrics directly into their apps without taking any extra steps.

Using more than 100 behavioral parameters including angle, pressure, speed, size and pattern, the behavioral biometric technology analyzes how each individual uses his mobile device to continuously authenticate users.

As a result, the technology improves the overall digital experience by decreasing the friction caused by using passwords and tokens while increasing functionality by enabling more transactions in the mobile channel.

SecuredTouch immediately recognizes non-human behavior to detect and prevent suspicious activity — such as automated brute force attacks, account takeover, malware and targeted attacks — before any fraud occurs.

The authentication technology can be applied to multiple use cases, ranging from transparent second factor authentication in financial applications to ensuring enterprise security by blocking unauthorized users from accessing corporate apps.

“SecuredTouch gives IBM MobileFirst users a competitive advantage, allowing them to reduce the friction caused by passwords and other security checks without compromising security,” said SecuredTouch CEO Yair Finzi. “Both the company and end user benefit.”
