Security in your keystrokes

Product: BioPassword

In an era when computer systems and confidential customer data are under continual threat from hackers, a simple password based on your pet hamster's name and birth date is no longer enough. But BioPassword takes security to the next level.

Based on Morse code, BioPassword employs an individual's unique typing rhythm to authenticate user identity. Much like other biometrics (a person's fingerprint or iris characteristics, for example) a user's typing rhythm is intrinsic to that person, so it cannot be shared, lost, stolen or forgotten.

Since BioPassword relies on a person's way of typing, which is as unique as how a person walks or talks, it more thoroughly blocks data thieves' attacks. And it combines two levels of security in one single step: the traditional login and how that login is typed.

BioPassword is a software-only solution. There is no hardware to purchase, so users can be quickly and easily enrolled on the system. And because there is no need to frequently reset passwords, BioPassword may reduce costs associated with help desk calls.

It reportedly speeds compliance with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard and eliminates vulnerabilities associated with lost, stolen, shared or weak passwords; phishing and pharming scams; and password crackers and keystroke loggers. BioPassword requires no password memorization (meaning no more notes stuck to the edge of your monitor) or frequent password changes either. And it works with a keyboard, or even a cell phone.

BioPassword's multifactor authentication software can be deployed across an enterprise network or over the Internet. It is ideal for protecting network applications, online banking sites, e-commerce users, digital content, Internet portals, or individual laptops and PCs.
