Plurilock offers multi-factor authentication with behavioral biometrics
Plurilock has announced the launch of its new next-generation multi-factor authentication platform for Citrix, web, and enterprise environments, ADAPT MFA.
According to the announcement, Plurilock ADAPT MFA leverages the company’s proprietary risk-aware, AI-driven authentication engine, making MFA invisible to end-users with analysis of micro-patterns in behaviour, environment, and context for what the company calls “fingerprint-strong identity confirmation.” This allows it to offer MFA security without requiring users to augment usernames and passwords with something they have or by providing a physical biometric like a fingerprint.
“ADAPT enables organizations to deploy strong multi-factor authentication without the need for phones, token fobs, or other headaches” says Ian Paterson, Plurilock CEO. “Clients that previously found MFA deployment to be difficult or costly can use ADAPT to achieve state-of-the-art MFA quickly, without breaking the budget and without the usual revolts among users and IT staff.”
The capabilities of ADAPT have also been added to Plurilock’s continuous authentication product, DEFEND, which launched in August. Both ADAPT and DEFEND are available to Citrix partners and through the reseller program which Plurilock also launched last summer.
The company has also released its 2019 Authentication Guide, which provides information on current industry authentication standards and provides recommendations for security and IT administrators.
