    Behavioral Biometrics

    The definitive PLURILOCK guide

    You are the NEW password

    Behavioral biometrics and authentication today

    Passwords have long been the standard authentication tool. But there are a growing number of serious problems with this form of authentication.

    Users today have a lot of passwords to remember—more than ever before—and they’re asked to change them frequently. Each of these passwords can be used by anyone that has them if they’re compromised or stolen.

    Meanwhile, the need for ever more complex passwords, in ever greater numbers, that are ever more ready at hand leads to poor password hygiene and habits. These defeat the purpose of password use.

    Behavioral Biometric: User Friction Passwords

    Password management software makes it easier to store and manage passwords, but passwords remain vulnerable to human error, social engineering, and theft—and once a password is in the wrong hands, the door is wide open.

    Behavioral Biometrics Carelessness, Loss, or Theft

    For these reasons, multi-factor authentication (MFA) is now in widespread use. By requiring both a known password and the possession of a particular device or other hardware, MFA is designed to plug some of the holes that decades of password use has created.

    But devices, too, are vulnerable to loss, social engineering, and theft—often at the same time that passwords are being stolen—and MFA makes heavy demands on users and support teams.

    Behavioral biometrics, on the other hand, plugs these holes by providing transparent authentication that is neither password- nor device-dependent.

    Instead, everyday behavior provides continuous, real-time verification of identity, whatever device is being used. Meanwhile, strangers are caught and excluded—with or without the “right” passwords and devices.

    Authentication Methods: A Side-by-Side Comparison

    A closer look at how current authentication methods perform

    Vulnerability

    User Friction

    Regulatory Compliance

    Passwords

    Password Vulnerability

    High

    Prone to human error, poor hygiene, and theft.

    Password User Friction

    High

    Forgetfulness and complex password policies lead to high support needs.

    Password Compliance

    LOW

    Do not alone meet many current  regulatory standards.

    Multi-factor Auth

    Multi-Factor Vulnerability

    Medium

    Prone human error and compromised by device loss or theft.

    Multi-Factor USER FRICTION

    High

    Further increases complexity and imposes new logistical constraints.

    Multi-Factor Compliance

    High

    Enables regulatory standards to be met, though at high costs.

    Behavioral Biometrics

    Behavioral Biometrics Vulnerability

    VERY LOW

    The capture and re-use of micro-behaviors is currently not possible.

    Behavioral BIometrics USER FRICTION

    NONE

    Authenticates in real time while invisible to the user.

    Behavioral Biometrics Compliance

    High

    Continuous, strong authentication is driving rapid adoption in regulated organizations and industries.
