Behavioural biometrics developers SecuredTouch has revealed that its technology is now a primary authentication option in IBM’s MobileFirst Foundation.

In a statement, SecuredTouch said the integration allows IBM customers to implement behavioral biometrics directly into their apps without any additional steps.

SecuredTouch said its solution analyses how each person uses his mobile device, combining angle, pressure, speed, size, and patterns to continuously authenticate users.

These “digital” behavioral characteristics help SecuredTouch immediately recognizes non-human behavior, catching and stopping suspicious activity before fraud occurs.

“SecuredTouch gives IBM MobileFirst users a competitive advantage, allowing them to reduce the friction caused by passwords and other security checks without compromising security,” says Yair Finzi, SecuredTouch CEO. “Both the company and end user benefit.”
