TeleSign Launches Behavior ID Identity Platform
The platform is designed to provide authentication even after the user has been verified with traditional security measures such as passwords.Mobile identity solutions specialist TeleSign announced the launch of TeleSign Behavior ID, which enables Web and mobile applications to measure and analyze a user’s behavioral biometrics in order to provide continuous authentication. The platform is designed to provide authentication even after the user has been verified with traditional security measures such as passwords. The product works in the background to collect and evaluate a mix of mouse dynamics, keystrokes, graphical user interface (GUI) interaction and behavioral algorithms to establish a unique user profile. With this profile, Behavior ID can help prevent account takeover attempts even if a hacker is in possession of a user’s correct account credentials.
"The reality is, passwords alone are no longer enough to protect online accounts. Consumers are tired of passwords, with 70 percent losing faith in their ability to protect accounts, and companies are looking for new, simple and secure ways to verify their users," Sergi Isasi, director of product management at TeleSign, told eWEEK. "At TeleSign we believe the strongest form of account security requires a layered approach, with behavioral biometrics as a key component of establishing and authenticating a user’s identity."
