Plurilock files behavioral biometrics patent for continuous remote worker authentication
Plurilock has filed for a patent to cover a new form of continuous authentication with behavioral biometrics for remote workers.
The filing with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) describes the use of keystroke biometrics with previously-enrolled data, and Plurilock says it can enable companies to constantly authenticate their employees working on remote devices or in remote settings while staff remain ‘invisible.’
“The filing of our provisional patent application validates our intention to create innovative authentication solutions that are designed to prevent, and address security challenges faced by the enterprise customers that have a growing remote workforce,” says Ian L. Paterson, CEO of Plurilock Security Inc. “As the world moves to remote work, we plan to develop more advanced continuous authentication solutions that can challenge the current industry standards while ensuring our clients’ workflow remains uninterrupted in and out of the office.”
Plurilock also just announced a contract renewal with a regional U.S. bank.
