About Us

Founded in 2015, TWOSENSE is a company dedicated to the future of identity security: Continuous Authentication. We developed our behavioral biometric technology through the needs of the US Department of Defense and now we're looking to bring it to enterprise. We believe that user authentication should be easy, automatic, and secure.

Who we are.

Machine learning expertise meets software development experience.  We are a team with PhD machine learning expertise, years of enterprise application building experience, and a leadership background in cyber-security who are making user authentication as seamless as saying hello to an old friend through behavior based authentication.
