"We are excited to demonstrate how REL-ID can support any biometric or advanced credentials, while strengthening the underlying secure connectivity of the entire network."

Uniken is a cybersecurity firm that makes connecting safe, simple, scalable with its core offering, REL-ID. REL-ID is a unique family of solutions built on its patented security protocol that binds identity and channel to ensure that user, application, and device posture and identity are verified before access to applications is granted. Uniken is demonstrating its solutions at the 2016 Money 20/20 conference being held October 23rd-26th at The Venetian in Las Vegas.

With over 10,000 attendees from 75 countries, more than 1,000 CEOs and speakers from over 3,000 companies, Money 20/20 is one of the largest payments conferences in the world and focuses on the intersection of payments and financial services.

At the conference, Uniken is announcing a significant enhancement to its REL-ID and REL-IDverify offerings. The new feature expands on Uniken’s existing channel and device level continuous authentication verification capability, further allowing a mix of username/passwords, fingerprint and FIDO compliant biometrics to validate any combination of application, user and transaction type all without a third party involved.

With this new feature, organizations can mix and match continuous authentication levels and approaches, depending on the needs of a particular transaction, user, device, geolocation, etc. Higher value transactions, for example, may prompt the user for a voice authentication or more rigorous biometric. Lower risk transactions may only require the use of the iPhone’s TouchID. Any transaction or session can be stepped-up or revalidated based on a transaction request or a number of continuously checked parameters such as geolocation. This feature builds on the strength of REL-ID’s existing, continuous, channel security. Uniken’s current offerings will be displayed at booth 2740.

“We are very pleased to showcase our innovative REL-ID connectivity technology at the 2016 Money 20/20 conference,” said Gandhi. “Firms across the banking and financial services industry demand a safe and secure alternative to complex, vulnerable pin and password protocols. We are excited to demonstrate how REL-ID can support any biometric or advanced credentials, while strengthening the underlying secure connectivity of the entire network.”

Uniken, recently announced it has joined the FIDO (“Fast Identity Online”) Alliance, a cross-industry coalition developing open, interoperable authentication standards that reduce reliance on passwords with authentication that is more secure, private and easier to use.
