Working from home in the era of COVID-19 has presented organizations of all sizes with new and complex security challenges. Dawud Gordon, CEO & Co-Founder of Twosense sat down with Michael Vizard of TechStrong TV to explain why invisibly capturing biometric data will ultimately be the way identities are managed.
Twosense, a Machine Learning and AI startup is focused on solving the fundamental problems of identity security. Currently one of the issues facing identity security is that these systems operate by making the user responsible for interacting with the security infrastructure to prove that they are in fact an authorized user, which leaves significant room for human error.
Another challenge organizations are facing is that the implementation of highly effective security measures takes a toll on the user experience. The fact that human effort is involved in creating these systems up until now has been a limiting factor in how secure things can be made.
Twosense is trying to change that paradigm and have created software that removes the human variable. Automation and software can be responsible for proving an individual user’s identity. Twosense acts as a base layer that can be deployed into any infrastructure and works on the user’s behalf to run continuous authentication via passive biometrics.
Passive biometrics are intrinsically part of who you are. Traditional MFA focuses on something that you know or something that you have on your person. For example, single sign-on requires a login and password, or MFA sends you a 6-digit via text, email, or requires a RADIUS device. With the implementation of AI, we can create invisible biometrics where the software looks at every aspect of the actions behind what makes a person a person. It can then inject those biometrics into every transaction to validate the user’s identity and create a baseline of trust. Those behaviors are then used to automate the challenge-response of identity with the goal of creating a world where all identity security is invisible to the user and free of human error.
The Twosense software can be deployed in 15-30 minutes and is a combination of integrating standards that are already implemented such as SAML 2.0, OpenID Connect, and even RADIUS. For more information regarding the implementation and deployment please see our Integration Guides.
