Identity-Bound Biometrics (IBB)Constantly You. Universally True.
Identity-Bound Biometrics is a category of biometrics that puts the only constant in cybersecurity — people — at the center of its architecture. Used for authentication and identification, IBB centrally stores biometric data in a non-reversible way, to create a unique biometric identity that’s used to verify the person taking action.
Why Identity-Bound Biometrics?
Establishes trust and accountability rooted in a person's biometric identity so organizations can be assured of genuine presence and audit with full transparency.
Flexibility & Ease of Use
Greater deployment versatility and scalability across use cases enables enterprises to provide a consistent and seamless user experience. One-time enrollment quickly sets up access across multiple devices and locations.
Cost & Efficiency
Reduces overall costs by streamlining IT department resources and eliminating operational redundancies yielded by traditional authentication systems. Easily integrated with systems, applications, and infrastructure, inherent cloud-readiness, and straightforward pricing makes it easy to achieve measurable ROI in 90 days or less.
Eliminate the Risks of Traditional Authentication
Decreased susceptibility to attacks, as IBB methods cannot be forgotten, shared, exchanged, stolen or forged.
Enterprise-controlled enrollment prevents account handovers and ensures only approved individuals can use account privileges.
Eliminates concern around having a single point of failure by removing physical devices as potential vulnerabilities (as present with local or device-native biometrics).
Key Features of IBB
Implement a layer of security and consistent user experience across all access.
One-time enrollment required to setup access across multiple devices and locations.
Quickly and efficiently scale to meet the needs of a user base of a few hundred to millions.
Prevent account handovers and ensure only approved individuals can use account privileges.
