BioCatch behavioral biometrics join Microsoft Azure Marketplace, Acceptto verified Citrix Ready
A pair of behavioral biometrics offerings have become more widely available to enterprises, as BioCatch’s platform is now available on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace and can be immediately implemented by customers by choosing the “Transact” option, and Acceptto‘s technology has been declared ‘Citrix Ready’ for Workspace authentication.
BioCatch develops AI technology that analyzes physical and cognitive user interactions from web and mobile channels, based on more than 2,000 parameters. It then applies the online behavioral insights to uses cases across the digital identity lifecycle, such as detecting stolen or synthetic identities in account onboarding, authenticating users at login, detecting fraudulent account takeover attempts, and recognizing sophisticated social engineering scams.
In September, the company announced updates to the platform, including several new behavioral biometrics products, such as a Policy Manager, Case Manager, and new behavioral indicators that increase visibility into the risk score it generates.
“We are extremely excited that BioCatch is now available for direct purchase through the Microsoft Azure Marketplace,” said Bill Sytsma, chief revenue officer of BioCatch. “By joining the Azure Marketplace and enabling the ‘transact’ feature, BioCatch’s behavioral biometrics technology now becomes readily available to the vast community of Microsoft enterprise customers who are looking for innovative ways to manage risk and user experience in the digital channel. Via the Azure Marketplace, contracting and implementing BioCatch becomes easier, cutting the time it takes to activate the service, for which demand is rapidly growing.”
BioCatch’s AI technology will be demonstrated during Microsoft’s new Executive Briefing Center (EBC) in Singapore.
Acceptto has, in turn, been verified as Citrix Ready, and can now be used by enterprise customers to enhance Citrix environments, the company announced. The tool works with Citrix Workspace to boost authentication, reduce friction and improve productivity.
“Acceptto’s solution, which has been tested and validated as Citrix Ready, is integrated with Citrix solutions to address the chronic risk and cost of binary authentication like passwords, 2FA and MFA (including biometrics),” said John Panagulias, Citrix Ready Director. “Offering a password-less, context aware, risk-based authorization and, most importantly, UBA based post-authorization, it’s continuous behavioral authentication unleashes the power of Citrix while delivering a higher level of platform trusts.”
Acceptto claims to be the industry’s first to develop a Biobehavioral authentication that continuously monitors and manages access to cyber resources.
In September, Acceptto was included in the SINET 16 Innovators, an industry evaluation of hundreds of innovative cybersecurity firms, and recognized for its user identity and behavior verification technology.
