ZorroSign adds biometric passwordless login to improve security

ZorroSign adds biometric passwordless login to improve security
 

ZorroSign has introduced biometric paswordless login features to reduce security vulnerabilities, the company announced.

The platform has been updated with security and identity protocols. By introducing multi-factor authentication, users can log into the system without a password and sign, validate and authenticate electronic documents without risking security and data privacy.

In 2019, the company already enabled One Time Password (OTP) for basic two-factor authentication and added a security protocol in its Identity as a Service (IDaaS) feature which allows corporate customers in the US to use a premium service that will allow user validation through Knowledge Based Authentication (KBA). The third feature recently introduced is the use of mobile biometrics to sign documents.

When users have usernames and passwords for authentication, they often choose simple passwords that they reuse. This creates a security vulnerability, which is why paswordless environments deliver more security, the company says.

To use the passwordless feature, ZorroSign users scan a QR code on the login screen and immediately the mobile device will ask for biometric verification or will send a pin code via email or text if the device does not have biometric capability. Following authentication, the user is automatically logged in.

The paswordless feature can be turned on using the ZorroSign mobile app.

“We are the first to provide our customers with the option to utilize the most advanced security and privacy protocols, which is not a focus area of our competitive landscape,” said Shamsh Hadi, Chief Executive Officer at ZorroSign. “This reinforces our commitment to providing the most advanced, secure, accessible, privacy focused, electronic and digital signature platform on the market, while maintaining our own digital certificates placed on the blockchain at a competitive price.”

ZorroSign’s Digital Business Platform uses Digital Transaction Management streamlines end-to-end digital transactions. Its patented Electronic Signature technology enables users to actually sign a document electronically or digitally.

In 2020, ZorroSign will release a digital signature solution recognized by international Certifying Authorities (CAs), which will use a cryptographic technique to secure the signed document and the data contained, and will include digital security certificates that never expire, the company says.

Other plans for 2020 include focusing on on Identity as a Service (IDaaS) and the release of new AI and ML technologies in areas such as identification, facial recognition and true signature recognition. Developing partnerships include work on use a technology product to sign and compare current signatures to previous signatures.
