Acceptto granted patents for behavioral authentication, orchestration, adaptive authorization
Acceptto has been granted five U.S. patents for user device authentication policy orchestration, dynamic adaptive authorization and enhanced identity access control, the company announced.
The patented technologies are part of the company’s behavioral authentication portfolio. They focus on identity and access management (IAM/CIAM) issues, which Acceptto aims to solve through its adaptive authorization and identity information access control solution that leverages modern and proprietary continuous behavioral modeling to verify users across mobile, web, and other platforms.
“Cybercriminals are not slowing down which means we cannot either. At Acceptto, we continue to demonstrate global innovation in the security and privacy of our customers as demonstrated by our latest patents,” said Shahrokh Shahidzadeh, CEO at Acceptto. “Authentication has never been more important. We are continuing to provide the most resilient authentication defenses powered by the portfolio of our IP partnerships with trailblazer clients who are employing our state-of-the-art patented technologies, delivering next-generation security innovation.”
The newly issued patents focus on authentication orchestration for risk-based authentication through context, behavioral modeling and policy orchestration; dynamic levels of assurance which discusses an authorization token for real-time multi-factor authentication (MFA) that uses a device for secure service authorization for online services relying on on-demand level of assurance; and consumer-based access control which involves a system for processing a registration and verification request to provide identity information for an identity service or services associated with the user identification.
Acceptto’s authentication solution phases out risks associated with binary authentication methods such as passwords, two-factor authentication (2FA) and other forms of MFA including biometrics that do not solve IAM-associated problems. Acceptto says it leverages policy orchestration and an AIML-powered risk engine to provide continuous behavioral authentication for its Fortune 500 and SMB clients.
In December 2019, Acceppto announced it would deliver Central Authentication Service (CAS) Single Sign-On (SSO) integration with multifactor authentication and QR code passwordless authentication support at login and post-authorization to phase out usernames and passwords.
