Plurilock Security (PLUR.V) has added another authentication option through a mobile application for iOS and Android phones, according to a press release.

The company intends to include the app as part of their ADAPT, Plurlock’s multi-factor identification product using behavioural-biometrics and machine learning as identification criteria based on distinct movement patterns in their typing style.

“Plurilock’s mobile app complements ADAPT and enhances its ability to identify users under different circumstances, resulting in ADAPT being a stand-alone login authentication solution. Organizations no longer need to consider other alternatives for back-up authentication to overcome situations in which users cannot authenticate themselves biometrically. We are pleased to offer this functionality to our clients going forward,” said Ian L. Paterson, CEO of Plurilock Security.

ADAPT allows for authentication without the requirement for SMS codes, USB authenticators or other more annoying types you’ll commonly see on the market today. The new mobile applications will provide a back door for organizations to get users past the security system when ADAPT’s behavioural-biometric tech can’t confirm the user’s identity—for example, when some variety of injury has changed the way a user types.

The company’s application can be used with all recent iOS and Android devices, and is freely available in Apple’s iOS store and Google’s Play Store.

Plurilock’s prices are flat today, but it’s early yet, and off-trend the trend as the chart suggests. Over the past month, the company’s price has been steadily climbing and their present position at $0.37 represents a nine cent increase over the month, or roughly a third of its former price. That’s not nothing and it’s two cents off from its previous all time high of $.39 from late October.
