Risk Assessing App Adjusts Authentication Demands on BlackBerry Dynamics

BlackBerry has brought a behavioral authentication system to its enterprise security platform, with the Sentegrity app now available to all BlackBerry Dynamics users.

Risk Assessing App Adjusts Authentication Demands on BlackBerry DynamicsThe app is designed to use a range of contextual factors to assess risk and regulate access control, dynamically adjusting security requirements based on analysis. One assessment might not require a password at all, while another may call for biometric authentication, and a serious threat could trigger all locally stored data on a device to be deleted.

The app joins a number of other emerging security platforms designed to assess contextual data and even behavioral biometrics such as how a user tends to tap on a mobile screen. For its part, Sentegrity says its app only kicks into operation when data is being accessed, and can perform its risk assessment in less than a second.

The app is now available to all BlackBerry Dynamics users across any OS, Sentegrity says.
