SecuredTouch granted U.S. patent for continuous authentication with behavioral biometrics
SecuredTouch has been awarded a U.S. Patent for “Continuous User Authentication” with its behavioral biometrics technology.
The United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) granted SecuredTouch US 10366217, which describes a system for protecting interactions in the digital channel from newly developed fraud techniques and automated tools.
While advanced fraud attacks can appear to come from a legitimate account, and bypass traditional fraud detection tools, SecuredTouch says its behavioral biometric technology learns and identifies the patterns of human interactions with physical devices to identify the user and differentiate human activity from that of bots or emulators.
“This patent places SecuredTouch at the forefront of innovation in user authentication. Since day-one the company is committed to investing in advanced research and development, which is now also recognized by the USPTO,” says SecuredTouch CEO and Co-founder Yair Finzi. “Our solutions are based on behavioral biometrics and seamlessly fight advanced fraud, in the eCommerce and banking industries.”
Finzi also says the company is thrilled with the recent announcement by the European Banking Authority (EBA) that behavioral biometrics count as an inherence element for Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) under PSD2 regulation.
SecuredTouch was added to the ForgeRock Trust Network Partner Program earlier this year to reach ForgeRock’s banking and e-commerce customers.
