Plurilock Security (PLUR.V) filed a new patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a novel form of remote authentication technology today, according to a press release.

The application is for a continuous authentication method used to verify the identity of a user working remotely. It uses a subject’s unique keystroke patterns, and compares them to patterns previously collected while allowing the user to work on a remote device or in a remote setting without any interruptions.

“The filing of our provisional patent application validates our intention to create innovative authentication solutions that are designed to prevent, and address security challenges faced by the enterprise customers that have a growing remote workforce. As the world moves to remote work, we plan to develop more advanced continuous authentication solutions that can challenge the current industry standards while ensuring our clients’ workflow remains uninterrupted in and out of the office,” said Ian L. Paterson, CEO of Plurilock Security.

The company’s latest method will give companies the ability to constantly determine if the person working at the station is in fact their employee and staff even if the user isn’t immediately accessible to them.


Plurilock dropped half a cent to close at $0.38 today.
