Telefonica takes behavioural biometrics from Authenware

Authenware : 10 July, 2009  (Application Story)
Global telecommunications company to employ system access control using keystroke pattern and typing behaviour biometrics from Authenware
Behavioural biometrics leader Authenware has announced a landmark agreement with Telefónica, employing Authenware's security features through much of the global telecommunication giant's landline and mobile communications. Under the deal, Telefónica's login portals will be armed with the Authentest software, granting access to valid users by analyzing keystroke patterns and typing behaviours.

'In every corner of the globe today, cyberspace is becoming a more economically taxing and time consuming business expense,' said Tom Helou, president of Authenware. 'Governments and companies alike have made efforts to protect electronic information through the continual yet arduous alteration of usernames and passwords. As the online environment swells, however, security must become less about diversification and more about personalization. We are excited to begin working with Telefónica to provide a layer of security that is personal, allowing their online accounts to be protected by an individual's behaviors rather than simply a username and password that can be replicated or stolen.'

With the agreement, Authenware will initially provide its services to Telefónica employees within the Information and Fraud Prevention division. Once Authentest is implemented internally, the keystroke biometric software will then be incorporated into other critical access points.

'Authentest is the best behavioural biometric security solution that reinforces application authentication processes and provides additional mechanisms to monitor and analyze user behavior in accessing information systems,' said Fernando Bosch, Director of Information Security & Fraud Prevention at Telefónica.

Throughout the contract acquisition, global IT consulting firm Neoris participated as a liaison between the parties. 'Authenware is privileged to receive the confidence and support of Neoris during this endeavour. Earning the endorsement of such a reputable company is truly an honor, and for that we show our utmost appreciation,' said Helou.
