ForgeRock adds TypingDNA’s typing biometrics authentication to identity platform
The ForgeRock Identity Platform has integrated the typing biometric authentication API developed by TypingDNA to boost security and workforce and customer authentication experience, the company announced.
As a result, TypingDNA is officially recognized as a ForgeRock Trust Network Behavioral Biometrics Partner.
“In today’s challenging times, digitalization often implies compromising usability for the sake of security,” said Tudor Goicea, Chief Revenue Officer at TypingDNA in a prepared statement. “As a Behavioral Biometrics Partner in ForgeRock’s Trust-Network, we aim to help ForgeRock’s clients take full advantage of the innovation that comes with accurately authenticating people based on how they type, and in doing so, maintaining a frictionless user journey.”
To improve digital journeys, ForgeRock clients can now roll out seamless behavioral-based passive authentication that reduces cybersecurity risks and prevents account takeover and fraud. The technology is very flexible, making behavioral biometric features easy to deploy through the ForgeRock Marketplace.
TypingDNA’s authentication API is part of risk-based authentication (RBA) and two-factor authentication (2FA) measures to prevent account takeover. It delivers risk-score assessments and authentication in real-time. Other step-up authentication measures can be triggered by analyzing users’ typing style, regardless of device, app or browser.
“Our partners help us make the ForgeRock Identity Platform stronger, by bringing new and exciting technologies to our customers,” said Ben Goodman, Senior Vice President, Global Business and Corporate Development at ForgeRock in a prepared statement. “We believe user-friendly solutions like TypingDNA’s typing biometrics authentication API are key to streamlining the digital journeys of consumers, and the security of employees.”
Typing biometrics (keystroke dynamics) have been approved by the European Banking Authority (EBA) for strong customer authentication (SCA) within the PSD2 framework. This has sped up implementation in banking and financial industries to prevent online banking fraud, card-not-present transactions, and to secure checkouts, according to the announcement.
TypingDNA, in partnership with CPaT Global, recently released a student verification tool with behavioral biometric technology. It also released a biometric data app for online exam proctoring in collaboration with Tremend.
