Obsecure launches biometric authentication SDK and messaging app
Cybersecurity firm Obsecure has announced a new authentication tool and messaging app, each with behavioral and face biometrics, at the Finovate Fall digital event.
AuthenticAction and AuthenticMessage are the new solutions designed for notary-grade digital action signing.
At the event, Obsecure also revealed that industry executives Ben Wallach and Avner Gideoni have joined the company as executive advisors.
Obsecure’s technology uses a combination of AI, biometrics and unique passive action capture techniques to verify users. This allows the identity of the person performing a digital action to be captured and verified simultaneously with the action they performed.
The combination of face and behavioral biometric authentication provides a tamper-resistant proof of the activity, guaranteeing that the action is authentic and can be trusted.
“The unique approach of Obsecure’s technology is so robust that it can hermetically protect from existing and future account takeover and malware attacks,” Gideoni commented.
“I am thrilled to be a part of a team that will finally close the security gaps fraudsters abuse.”
The company describes AuthenticAction as a simple SDK for integrating Obsecure’s technology into websites and mobile apps, and says it increases the level of trust to eliminate multiple authentication steps, reduce limitations and false declines.
AuthenticMessage is a standalone messaging application that ensures the authenticity of business communication, preventing social engineering and business email compromise attacks.
“Our team of global security professionals decided to make it impossible for fraudsters to hide behind devices, bots and malicious programs,“ Obsecure Co-founder and CEO Erez Zohar explained.
“By providing the same visibility and transparency as face-to-face interactions do, Obsecure’s solutions help organizations trust their customers, vendors and employees as they interact digitally, while preventing fraudsters from impersonating others.”
