AppGuard launches enterprise BYOD app with face, iris, and fingerprint biometrics
Cybersecurity software company AppGuard has launched TRUSTICA Mobile, which it says is a consumer mobile device communication app with military-grade security, including facial, iris, and fingerprint biometrics for user authentication and encryption keys that change for each interaction.
TRUSTICA Mobile provides encrypted file storage and transfer, text and voice messages, and video sessions to support “bring your own device” (BYOD) policies for enterprises and smaller organizations with the data security businesses require, and privacy protections for employees, according to the announcement. The app eliminates the creation of temporary files, prevents social engineering and phishing attacks, blocks screen captures and mirroring, prevents reverse engineering, and continually validates device integrity with remote attestation, the company says. TRUSTICA Mobile issues a warning or closes sessions to prevent eavesdropping if other apps try to access the device microphone or camera during protected communications. User authentication is based on geo-location, along with a combination of facial recognition, iris scanning, fingerprint scanning, pattern, PIN, and password entry.
“TRUSTICA Mobile provides an isolated, secure environment for messaging, document sharing, or voice and video calls on employee-held devices. All while protecting company IP, without compromising employee privacy, or burdening companies with administrative control of employee devices,” says AppGuard, Inc. CEO Jon Loew.
The global market for BYOD technologies was forecasted last year to reach $266 billion in 2019.
AppGuard is showing off the new app at RSA Conference 2019.
