TypingDNA’s behavioral biometrics now available for Azure AD clients to leverage 2FA

TypingDNA’s behavioral biometrics now available for Azure AD clients to leverage 2FA

Microsoft Azure Active Directory B2C customers can now leverage behavioral biometrics through TypingDNA’s Authentication API to ensure a frictionless two-factor authentication, the companies announced.

The company’s AI technology that identifies a person from their typing pattern on a keyboard or mobile device will protect Azure AD B2C clients from password spray and brute force attacks. Microsoft’s customer identity access management (CIAM) solution processes millions of users and billions of authentications on a daily basis.

The TypingDNA Authentication API collects user data to verify identity and to ensure risk-based authentication through frictionless validation, trust scoring and account creation.

“We are delighted to work with Microsoft Azure Active Directory B2C and drive digital transformation by offering both seamless user experience and security,” said Tudor Goicea, Chief Revenue Officer at TypingDNA, in a prepared statement. “This collaboration extends to providing companies with innovative typing biometrics technology used for a range of authentication situations and various global compliance requirements.”

“With increased growth in account takeover fraud and a broader array of digital threats, we are pleased with the collaboration with TypingDNA to enhance seamless authentication. Together we help our customers improve account security in a frictionless manner,” said Sue Bohn, Partner Director of Program Experience, Microsoft Identity Division, at Microsoft Corp, in a prepared statement.

Behavioral biometrics-enabled authentication reduces customer churn rates, while improving security and engagement, according to the announcement. The system can reduce drop-offs, helps companies implement passive Risk-Based Authentication and Two-Factor Authentication workflows in regulated industries, and ensures compliance.

TypingDNA technology has already been implemented by various European banks to comply with the European Banking Authority Strong Customer Authentication requirements, as well as online learning institutions in the U.S. and online proctoring regulations.

In March, TypingDNA extended the free use of its API to schools and universities for exam proctoring and remote student identification to support remote online learning during the covid-19 pandemic.

More details about the technology are available in a webinar to be held by Tudor Goicea and Microsoft’s Identity Program Manager, Jas Suri, on June 30.
