AuthenWare Technology® is an identity protection service that is based on “what the user knows” and “how the user behaves” (a behavioral biometric) significantly reducing the risk of identity theft without the need for any additional hardware.
“We are excited about the partnership with CGC in support of Authenware’s expansion across the World,” said Tom Helou, president & COO, Authenware. “They considered a number of solutions, and ultimately chose AuthenWare Technology® as their Keystroke Biometric of choice due to its ease-of-use, scalability, SOA nature, adherence to standards and its ability to deliver immediate ROI to their customers.”
Authenware is the world’s leading provider of keystroke biometrics. Keystroke Biometrics lets organizations get the highest security levels to enterprise applications, the web, and any form of transaction that engages a software artifact.
Our product AuthenWare Technology® creates and maintains a personal pattern for each user (equivalent to recognizing the calligraphy and conduct of the user) each time that the user enters data using the keyboard (for example user name and password). Therefore in the case somebody else knew the user name and password and tried to use it to log in to a site or system, AuthenWare Technology® would attempt to match the behavior of the violator to the genuine user’s pattern and log in would be denied in spite of “knowing” the correct inputs.
The personal pattern is formed by the peculiar typing rhythm that each person adopts when typing the same thing over and over (i.e. user name and password) plus behavior variables plus environment variables.
