ADAPT

Plurilock ADAPT™ is a Plurilock product that provides invisible, frictionless, biometric multi-factor authentication (MFA).

ADAPT uses behavioral-biometric, environmental, and contextual identity factors to authenticate users during login workflows. ADAPT relies on machine learning to maintain a fingerprint-unique profile of users' identity characteristics.

If during login the authenticating individual does not match the expected user's profile, they may either be excluded (login failed) or prompted to perform step-up authentication (such as with a phone code or email link) to confirm identity.

ADAPT makes stolen credentials useless to attackers; even if an attacker has captured a user's password, their location behavior, network characteristics, and behavioral-biometric typing and pointing style won't match the intended user, ensuring that inappropriate access is denied.
