The research report, titled “Innovation Insight for Biometric Authentication” provides key insights into biometric authentication that offers unique advantages over other credential-based methods

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – May 19, 2022) – Plurilock Security Inc. (TSXV: PLUR) (OTCQB: PLCKF) and its subsidiaries (“Plurilock” or the “Company”), a cybersecurity company focused on Identity Workforce Solution Provider, announced that the company was listed as a representative vendor in a 2022 report by Gartner Innovation Insight for Biometric Authentication.1

Gartner delivers actionable, objective insights to leaders and their teams.2 Gartner identified PlurilockMT as a representative seller for gesture and struck biometric authentication among the offers profiled in this search:

  • Gesture – “Uses pointing devices (mouse, trackpads) or touch screens (which support screen pressure as an additional measure). Often combined with manipulation and typing.”
  • Struck – “Keystroke dynamics, keyboard dynamics, typing rhythm:
    • Uses a physical or virtual keyboard.
    • This can be active, usually in conjunction with entering an old password, but sometimes in conjunction with a “drawn” password (e.g. BioMetric Signature ID).”3

According to Gartner, “Biometric authentication has a strong presence in the market. Biometric methods promise better user experience (UX), trust and accountability benefits than other credential-based methods and enable passwordless authentication, alone or in combination with other methods”.4 Additionally, Gartner recommends that those responsible for identity and access management and fraud detection “improve the authentication UX for employees and customers or build trust and accountability by implementing the biometrics alone or in combination with other credentials across a wide range of use cases, including identity lifecycle events, not just interactive login.”5

On May 11, 2022Plurilock has announced a new feature for its leading behavioral biometrics solution, Plurilock DEFENDMTwhich will allow the technology to extend its continuous identity assurance capabilities to Amazon WorkSpaces virtual sessions.

“We believe our inclusion as a representative vendor in this Gartner report validates Plurilock’s position as a leading player in the zero-trust identity space,” said Plurilock CEO Ian L. Paterson. . “In our view, this inclusion also demonstrates the company’s work in line with our strategy to acquire profitable cybersecurity companies with great customers and to deliver industry-leading identity confirmation solutions that protect the workforce. »
