NewYork, NY (PRWEB) September 10, 2013
Mobile fraud as well as device and identity theft are the leading barriers to the growth and profitability of consumer banking and commerce using smartphones and tablets. Today, Zighra announces and previews KineticID – its patent pending implicit mobile authentication solution designed to:
"While 57% of smartphone owners have banking apps and 41% have shopping apps, nearly 70% of users disable screen locks and leave apps perpetually logged in,” said Deepak Dutt, Zighra founder and CTO. "These facts underscore consumers’ demand for convenience and yet the behavior represents a real risk of fraud and theft, both to consumers and businesses."
Zighra’s KineticID provides effortless, automatic, and instantaneous user verification by adding an invisible security layer to user authentication on smartphone and tablet devices. KineticID implicitly recognizes and verifies users by continuously evaluating the user’s unique kinetic interaction patterns on their device, as well as a wide array of other invisible background checks. KineticID avoids dependence on traditional authentication mechanisms such as PINs, passwords, and other biometric data that are inconvenient, exploitable, and intrusive, and have been barriers to usability and trust.
