Boston, MA, April 16, 2013: Delfigo Security, the pioneer in intelligent authentication solutions, today filed a utility patent based on the physics phenomenon to enhance user identity management based on individual enrollment data of users to their unique keystroke or mobile touch-based biometrics.
Enrollment in systems that examine behavioral and environmental data based on past inputs can challenge companies and enterprises that prioritize user experience during the enrollment process. While the access capabilities are enhanced and more secure with a robust set of reference data and the additional context it provides to the identity scoring of users, asking the user to repeatedly train a system, or settling for a smaller and weaker data set than would be ideal in order to get results more quickly, can weaken companies’ resolve to adopt touch-based biometric technology and cause frustration for their customers and global users.
Delfigo Security’s newly developed technology improves the strength of enrollment data for new users of keystroke and mobile biometric solutions, resulting in better scoring immediately following user enrollment. By using unique data that has been submitted by the user to enhance existing enrollment data and it’s accuracy, Delfigo is able to offer their customers the benefits of a stronger identity access enrollment balanced with the ability to continue to offer users a seamless enrollment experience, with improved results immediately following the enrollment period.
“The well known and understood phenomenon of Hysteresis, which is the dependence of a system not only on its current environment but also on its past environment is key to ensure that we turn mobile user data into big data at the micro scale,” said Ralph Rodriguez, CEO of Delfigo Security. “Our scientific team of physicists has taken our unique approach into almost a quantum scale whereby we are able to detect unique dependencies because the system can be in more than one internal state. This coupled with our ability to take a high-dimensional enrollment phase space after user enrollment is complete creates a solution that is truly a game changing leap forward in applying mathematics and physics to identity management.”
“Identity management needs to account for the concept that past behavior affects the current state of identity,” says Hyoun Park, Principal Analyst, Nucleus Research. “By reinforcing hysteresis, companies can create an identity state for each user that reflects past behavior rather than simply depending on a static password or identity profile. As a result, companies can develop a dynamic user identification where the current state of identity is defined and amplified by the past.”
