Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
Delfigo Security, the pioneer in intelligent authentication solutions, today launched SoMoCloud™, a mobile biometric application available to Android users on Google Play. SoMoCloud showcases Delfigo’s biometric based device technology designed for touch screen displays in an easy to use application. “As consumers start using their smart phones for mobile payments they will need the security of knowing someone cannot simply steal their phone to make purchases without being the true owner,” says Ralph Rodriguez, CEO and Founder of Delfigo Security.
SoMoCloud enables mobile application developers to enhance security of mobile applications by ensuring that their users “Are Who They Say They Are” when they launch a banking or mobile payment application. SoMoCloud’s biometric technology enables providers to enhance or replace the use of 4-digit PINs or simple passwords on mobile devices. SoMoCloud captures unique behavior of the user as they interact with a simple interface in place of a traditional password. By collecting, storing and scoring data resulting from their mobile behavior, SoMoCloud can positively identify a user accessing an application on their device – and prevent a fraudulent user from accessing an application and it’s valuable data, in cases of a lost or stolen phone.
As consumers become increasingly attached to their mobile devices, mobile security solutions must accurately identify each user trying to access a device in real-time, states Hyoun Park, Principal Analyst, Nucleus Research. "These needs are especially true in the Android ecosystem, where device security defaults to features that can be easily hacked through social engineering, such as passwords, PINs, and pattern locks. By implementing a combination of biometric and device-based inputs in real-time without forcing the user to exert any additional effort to remember a complicated series of characters, mobile users can continue to add personal information on their smartphones and tablets without worrying about the security of their devices.”
