IRVINE, Calif. — HID Global and behavioral biometrics company BehavioSec have collaborated to offer a new layer of protection to prevent identity fraud.
The firms have combined HID Global’s 4TRESS authentication server fraud detection system with BehavioSec’s Behaviometrics technology to increase security when users try to access digital resources, such as logging into company networks or banking online.
The Behaviometrics solution can create digital fingerprints of users’ ongoing keyboard pressing patterns, including speed, frequency and pressure, when interacting with computer applications and Web sites. The system can detect deviations from a user’s normal behavior and whether an attacker takes control of a computer, according to a company press release.
“Recent security breaches have driven home the fact that the less layers of authentication your organization employs, the more vulnerable you are to attacks and exploitation,” says Hilding Arrehed, director of worldwide professional services and technology partner programs, Identity Assurance, HID Global. “By combining BehavioSec’s groundbreaking technology with our 4TRESS authentication server, we can provide added value and security to our customers by increasing the auditability and traceability of activity online, without making it more difficult for the end user.”
