Plurilock Listed as Representative Vendor in 2022 Gartner® Innovation Insight for Biometric Authentication report

Research report, titled ‘Innovation Insight for Biometric Authentication’ provides key insights on biometric authentication which offers unique advantages over other credential-based methods’

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA—Plurilock Security Inc. (TSXV: PLUR) (OTCQB: PLCKF) and related subsidiaries (“Plurilock” or the “Company”), an identity-centric cybersecurity solutions provider for workforces, has announced that the Company was mentioned as a Representative Vendor in a 2022 Gartner Innovation Insight for Biometric Authentication report.1

Gartner delivers actionable, objective insights to executives and their teams.2 Gartner has identified PlurilockTM as a representative vendor for gesture and keystroke biometric authentication among the offerings profiled in this research:

  • Gesture – “Uses pointing devices (mice, trackpads) or touchscreens (which support screen pressure as an additional metric). Often combined with handling and keystroke.”
  • Keystroke – “Keystroke dynamics, keyboard dynamics, typing rhythm:
    • Uses a physical or virtual keyboard.
    • This can be active, typically in conjunction with typing a legacy password, but sometimes in conjunction with a “drawn” password (e.g., BioMetric Signature ID).” 3

According to Gartner, “Biometric authentication has a high profile in the market. Biometric methods promise better user experience (UX), trust and accountability benefits than other credential-based methods and enable passwordless authentication, alone or combined with other methods”.4 Furthermore, Gartner recommends that identity and access management and fraud detection leaders “Improve authentication UX for employees and customers or enhance trust and accountability by implementing biometrics alone or in combination with other credentials across a wide range of use cases, including identity life cycle events, not just interactive login.”5

On May 11, 2022, Plurilock announced new functionality for its core behavioral biometrics solution, Plurilock DEFENDTM, that will allow the technology to extend its continuous identity assurance capabilities to Amazon WorkSpaces virtual sessions.

“We believe our inclusion as a representative vendor in this Gartner report validates Plurilock’s position as a leading player in the zero-trust identity space,” said Plurilock CEO, Ian L. Paterson. “In our opinion, this inclusion also demonstrates the Company’s work in alignment with our strategy to acquire profitable cybersecurity companies with great customers and provide cutting-edge identity confirmation solutions that protect workforces.”
