New behavioral biometrics FIDO certification, developer tool, customer win revealed
Zighra’s behavioral biometrics for decentralized continuous authentication have been certified by the FIDO Alliance, with the company claiming it is the first on-device behavioral biometrics solution confirmed to the FIDO standard.
The combination of AI, biometrics and behavioral analytics provides continuous protection against phishing and fraud in both conventional and zero-trust systems, the company says. The technology is available as a workforce app for secure logical access, and can help organizations comply with GDPR and the California Consumer Privacy Act.
“Now, with FIDO certification, Zighra adds tremendous value to meet the growing contactless-access needs of current and post-COVID work and lifestyles,” says Deepak Dutt, CEO of Zighra. “Our unique, patented solution provides powerful security controls to continuously protect enterprises and users, across devices, all with a seamless experience.”
The USPTO recently granted Zighra a patent for passwordless authentication with its behavioral biometrics.
