The patent is intended to expand Plurilock’s AI-driven technology portfolio, strengthening its competitive moat
New innovations documented in the patent application detail cybersecurity protection for remote work and virtual desktops
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 submitted documentation to finalize a patent pending with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) that covers enhancements to its continuous authentication solution.
The patent application, titled “Side-Channel Communication Reconciliation of Biometric Timing Data for User Authentication During Remote Desktop Sessions”, documents a new side channel for the Company’s continuous authentication solutions that will eliminate timing delays for authenticating user identity for remote work setups. Plurilock’s cutting-edge behavioral-biometric technology assesses a user’s unique keyboard and pointer movements to generate unordered numeric timing data. This data is then used to invisibly authenticate without adding friction or delays for the end user.
According to patent application documentation, the side channel enables Plurilock to solve for delays that result from working in a virtual desktop infrastructure environment, providing continuous authentication while also protecting devices from cyber attacks that target remote desktop data to steal credentials and user access.
“With the well-documented shift to remote work environments such as virtual desktops due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we felt it was critical to expand our innovative technology to provide continuous authentication for users without compromising data latency,” said Ian L. Paterson, CEO of Plurilock. “This patent is intended to be part of Plurilock’s ongoing strategy to strengthen its competitive moat in delivering state-of-the-art identity-centric cybersecurity solutions that can be implemented during remote work sessions for enterprise customers.”
Plurilock began the patent process for this innovation in November 2020, as previously announced on January 13, 2021, and has submitted comprehensive documentation on the technology. This documentation will undergo an assessment by the USPTO before the final patent is granted.
