Endpoint Agent

Plurilock's Endpoint Agent is a small, lightweight background application that is installed at the operating system level on a corporate endpoint.

The agent runs continuously and silently in the background, gathering keystroke and mouse movement and timing information, network context data, location data, and other ambient identity signals, which are then processed by Plurilock's machine learning engine in real time, on an ongoing basis, to continuously confirm or refute the identity of the currently logged in user.
