SAN FRANCISCO, April 1st, 2019BehavioSec, a pioneer in the behavioral biometrics and continuous authentication space, today announced its inclusion in a new Top 3 Report and Decision Guide from Enterprise Management Associates, Inc. (EMA) titled “Ten Priorities for Enabling Identity Management in 2019.” EMA’s Top 3 Reports provide guidance to enterprise influencers and decision makers on the types of solutions they should invest in to resolve specific challenges in their organization. This report also awards recognition to the top three solution providers, including BehavioSec, EMA believes should be included in product evaluations for each of the identified business requirements.

This report outlines how identity management is the cornerstone for effectively securing enterprise IT resources. EMA’s decision guide provides actionable advice on the best practices and solutions organizations should adopt for addressing today’s most pressing challenges to enabling effective identity management.

“Behavioral biometrics is one of the key disruptive technologies in identity management and can greatly relieve authentication security problems industries face,” said Neil Costigan, CEO of BehavioSec. “Because we’re able to identify users by monitoring ways in which they interact with their applications, we are on the leading edge and delivering significant return-on-investment. Our inclusion in this ‘Top 3’ report from EMA is further validation of our ground-breaking behavioral biometrics solution and confirms the type of service our customers experience on an ongoing basis.”

BehavioSec’s platform drives the company’s worldwide momentum as more business and government authorities acknowledge the limits of traditional login credentials too often stolen or exposed in the cybercrime underground. By instantly analyzing users’ keystrokes, cursor movements, touchscreen pressure and device handling, BehavioSec can continuously authenticate users based on their authentic, innate behaviors in real time. The platform detects suspect logins and transactions, or subjects them to higher risk scoring and customers’ further mitigations. This adds a new, pivotal last line of defense against account takeovers and unchecked fraud costs when criminals use browser malware, stolen devices, intercepted passwords and other techniques to bypass account security.

The report featuring BehavioSec is available here for EMA’s subscribers. Organizations interested in additional details on BehavioSec’s Behavioral Biometrics software platform can download a hands-on product review called “The Algorithm of You: Defeating Attackers by Being Yourself,” conducted by the SANS Institute.
