LiveEnsure Debuts User Authentication Platform

The company pairs a light mobile client with a few lines of system code to help ensure ease of deployment and use on both sides of any authentication experience. "User authentication is critical to every level of digital activity. Without it, no payment, social connection, login, download, access or interaction can be considered authentic. All meaning, value and validity surrounding them are suspect," Christian Hessler, CEO of LiveEnsure, told eWEEK. "User authenticity is like a personal brand. It is the very essence of our digital selves, since we lack any actual physical manifestation in the bit realm. Personal information, reputation, integrity and revocability are critical to surviving and thriving in cyberspace, whether via mobile, desktop, wearable or the Internet of things." The platform correlates data on a variety of dynamics involving device type, location and even user behavior for irrefutable authentication without certificates, tokens, SMS, biometrics, NFC, OOB, OTP or other techniques.
"It’s about the crowd, not the cloud. The cloud is big, the hackers are bigger, but the crowd is the biggest of all. It is the base of the identity and authenticity triangle and it is where the solution lies," Hessler said. "In addition, if you want to beat a scalable hack or threat, you simply have to out-scale it--and we have that opportunity with LiveEnsure."
