Plurilock adds SAML, OpenID Connect support to behavioral biometrics for authentication
Plurilock has upgraded its behavior-based multi-factor authentication solution to support standard deployment frameworks Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) and OpenID Connect.
The updated Adapt is already available for use with a wide number of enterprise systems and it is “easily deployable across most industry-standard security stacks,” said Plurilock CEO Ian Paterson, in a prepared statement.
To secure SaaS applications, Citrix sessions and enterprise endpoints, Adapt uses behavior-based biometric attributes such as keystroke patterns, geolocation, login time, light and posture to identify users, removing the need for phones, codes or tokens.
The new deployment features ensure strong MFA and do not require custom integration with most environments. Single sign-on (SSO) providers supporting SAML or OpenID configuration include Okta, Cisco Systems’ Duo, OneLogin, and Ping Identity.
Adapt was launched in February 2019, and has since received research funding from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Canadian Department of National Defense, and the Canadian Armed Forces, according to , IT World Canada. The project funded by the DHS is focused on machine-to-machine anomaly detection for IoT authentication in federal networks, while the DND project is looking into cyberattack detection and response through machine learning.
Another product Plurilock is developing is named Defend, focused on endpoint and workstation authentication.
