Glossary Term

DEFEND

Plurilock DEFEND is a Plurilock product that provides continuous authentication for enterprise workstations and endpoints.

DEFEND continuously monitors behavioral-biometric, environmental, and contextual identity signals to authenticate users in real time, on an ongoing basis, as they carry out everyday computing work and activities.

When the identity of the user at a workstation or endpoint is no longer consistent with the expected user's identity profile, DEFEND acts autonomously, within seconds, to alert administrators, prompt for further identity confirmation, or lock the workstation or endpoint.
