Optimal IdM extends MFA offering with TypingDNA behavioral biometrics

Through its partnership with TypingDNA, Optimal IdM now offers customers a secure biometric option as part of their multi-factor authentication solution. TypingDNA’s behavioral biometrics solution identifies people based on how they type on a mobile or desktop platform and is being used as a secondary form of login authentication for users who enter their email address and password.

“Having this kind of behavioral authentication extends our MFA offering and strengthens our portfolio,” said Chris Curcio, VP of Channel Sales and Partnerships at Optimal IdM. “We are very excited about our partnership with TypingDNA because of the ease of use and quick implementation they bring to our customer’s current applications.”

Raul Popa, CEO of TypingDNA, added, “We are delighted to join Optimal IdM in the mission to accelerate the availability of a ‘no more painful’ authentication. An increasing number of people are and will be authenticated by something they already are naturally doing, such as typing.”

In additition to securing the login process for employees, vendors, partners and consumers, TypingDNA’s authentication solution also provides an added layer of security when a consumer enters their credit card credentials for online transactions.

“Stealing someone’s typing pattern is practically impossible. Duplicating them would be even harder, because no one has the exact same typing behavior,” explained Jeff Bohren, Chief Software Engineer at Optimal IdM. “Typing biometrics improve security by preventing identity theft and minimizing the risk of online fraud.”

In March TypingDNA launched an extension for the Chrome browser to provide an alternative to using a mobile device for two-factor authentication.
