Safelayer Secure Communications, a leader in technology for PKI authentication and digital signature, announces its new authentication solutions.Based on context information and behavioral biometrics, the new system makes Safelayer's TrustedX product extremely flexible in terms of strong authentication methods.
The solution uses context information to enhance security. Examining the user's context allows detecting accesses from unknown devices, impossible changes in location between two consecutive accesses and keystroke patterns that differ from the user's, which may indicate fraudulent use of the device or an automated attack. This analysis determines if an additional authentication factor should be required for obtaining access.
Current strategies for improving confidence and security are based on a layered approach. Safelayer's new technology provides an additional layer of security that operates transparently and assesses the authentication risk. This means that the solution is also extremely adaptable. It detects and audits when risk levels change and allows launching additional steps to increase security only when required.
According to Francisco Jordan, Safelayer's CEO and cofounder, "the Cloud, mobility and social networks are driving the development of authentication systems with improved user experiences that find the right balance between security and costs". This new milestone will allow Safelayer's TrustedX product to continue its growth in the government, banking, certification service provider and corporate sectors by providing new authentication methods and incorporating the right security methods for Web and mobility environments.
