How are Plurilock ADAPT™ and Plurilock DEFEND™ different from one another?
Plurilock ADAPT provides multi-factor authentication for login or credential workflows, while Plurilock DEFEND provides continuous authentication for endpoints and workstations.
Plurilock DEFEND is deployed as a low-level, lightweight software agent on Windows and Mac OS systems. Plurilock DEFEND monitors all keyboard and pointer activity on the workstation or endpoint, using behavioral biometrics to verify identity of the logged-in user every 3-5 seconds. The outcomes of these regular checks can be used to lock the workstation when a user’s identity can no longer be confirmed or to provide detailed identity input to SIEM systems or other security frameworks for further action.
