Plurilock Listed as Sample Vendor in 2022 Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Digital Identity

Research report, titled ‘Hype Cycle for Digital Identity, 2022’ provides key insights on how IAM and security professionals should use the Hype Cycle to understand emerging Digital Identity technology.

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 Sample Vendor in 2022 Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Digital Identity.

Gartner delivers actionable, objective insights to executives and their teams. Gartner has identified PlurilockTM as a Sample Vendor under Passive Behavioral Biometrics in their recent report.

According to Gartner, “Digital identity depends upon authentication that can provide credence in an identity claim (sufficient to bring account takeover risks within an organization’s risk tolerance), ideally without adding unnecessary friction to the user journey. By generating recognition signals from a person’s normal interactions with an endpoint device at login or throughout each session, passive behavioral biometrics can elevate trust without interrupting the user journey, thus enhancing user experience (UX).”

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.

“Our inclusion as a Sample Vendor in this Gartner Hype Cycle report is a validation that Plurilock is providing its customers with superior passive behavioral biometric technology,” said Ian L. Paterson, CEO of Plurilock. “We aim to continue developing new advanced products with an emphasis of zero-trust architecture in order to become a leading global provider of cybersecurity solutions.”
