“It’s a solution that could dramatically transform the end user experience when performing online transactions, since it’s essentially passive…”
The integration was announced at this year’s Money20/20 event in Las Vegas, where it fit right in with the trends of biometric and multimodal authentication. Samsung SDS’s NexSign platform already supported facial, fingerprint, and voice recognition for user authentication, so BioCatch’s technology has been brought in as an additional layer of security.
In a new demo video on BioCatch’s website, the company shows off what that extra layer of security looks like. Using a mockup of a money transfer app, BioCatch VP Frances Zelazny shows how the NexSign platform is able to identify her just by her patterns in typing and otherwise interacting with her phone’s touchscreen. But when she hands it over to another user to do the same transaction, but system triggers an alert prompting a step-up of authentication – a biometric scan, in other words – since this other user’s behavioral patterns are completely different.
It’s a solution that could dramatically transform the end user experience when performing online transactions, since it’s essentially passive – once the system knows your behavioral patterns, it can authenticate you without you having to take any special actions beyond normal device use. And BioCatch’s demo helps to make clear why Samsung SDS found BioCatch’s solution so appealing.
