Nok Nok Labs releases v5.2 of S3 Authentication Suite
Nok Nok Labs has released version 5.2 of the company’s S3 Authentication Suite, which incorporates multiple different interfaces (GUI’s and command line) as well as a browser-based Dashboards that will facilitate building and displaying reports, according to a company blog post.
Aside from usability, the new Dashboards will add some significant new functionality to the platform.
S3 Authentication Suite 5.2 now supports deep analysis tracking the aggregate number of users, registrations, authentications, transactions and other key data points.
Using reports, deploying organizations are able to create deep datasets regarding their users which can improve functionality, engagement, and revenue and profit.
The datasets and reports support a second function in that they provide for tamper-evident audit logs.
“Regulations like the Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2), the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe and other regulations in the United States will require advanced authentication capabilities like the ones we have built in this newest version of the S3 Suite,” Rajiv Dholakia, vice president of products at Nok Nok Labs, said.
For the new release, Nok Nok Labs has also provided its’ own authenticator which the company describes as being a “Silent Authenticator”.
The new functionality allows for an implicit authentication to occur without affecting the user.
Building on prior NNL innovations around risk signals and device mapping, this new authenticator can be leveraged by our customers to improve their level of identity assurance without creating additional user friction.
Version 5.2 also includes support for the Cordova application development framework, allowing developers to target deployments in both iOS and Android with a single code base.
