“Samsung SDS is showcasing the BioCatch-infused solution at this week’s Money20/20 …”
The idea is to couple Nexsign’s biometric authentication capabilities – enabling mobile login based on facial, fingerprint, or voice recognition – with the kind of continuous authentication offered by behavioral biometrics. Once a user has logged into the mobile platform via Nexsign, BioCatch’s technology will continuously monitor the user’s activity. If an anomaly is detected indicating that account takeover or a similar form of fraudulent activity is in play, the system will prompt the user for another form of authentication.
In a statement announcing the integration, Samsung SDS America Enterprise Solutions VP Richard Lobovsky explained that while biometrics offer a powerful form of authentication at login, “behavioral biometrics is the perfect complement to provide continuous authentication inside a session,” adding that BioCatch’s technology “is able to detect both human and non-human imposters inside a session that would otherwise be impossible to identify with traditional means.”
Samsung SDS is showcasing the BioCatch-infused solution at this week’s Money20/20 event in Las Vegas, where biometric technology is once again proving to be a hot topic among the financial services-focused crowd.
