TWOSENSE.AI Awarded DoD $2.42M Security Contract for Behavioral Biometrics
announces it has been awarded a $2.42M contract through Other
Transaction Agreement (OTA) by the Army Contracting Command (ACC) to
deploy deep neural networks for continuous multifactor authentication.
The contract was awarded through the Rapid Innovation Fund on October
25th, 2018. TWOSENSE.AI is the leading provider of AI-based invisible,
continuous authentication for the workplace. TWOSENSE.AI is a B2B hybrid
SAAS product that invisibly and continuously authenticates users by
their behavior, such as how they walk, type, carry their device, or
interact with the screen. TWOSENSE.AI will be working with DISA to
create a government product to further secure employee identity while
improving the usability of secure systems.
"Both DISA and TWOSENSE.AI believe that continuous authentication is the
cornerstone of securing identity. Behavior-based authentication is
invisible to the user, therefore it can be be used continuously without
creating any extra work," said Dr. Dawud Gordo, CEO of TWOSENSE.AI.
This work stems from DISA's Assured Identity initiative to create
continuous identity security within the DoD, and eventually, replace
the Common Access Card (CAC) with traditional and behavioral biometrics.
This initiative builds on and leverages existing partnerships between
DISA and Qualcomm (News - Alert) for the purpose of hardware-backed device-level
hardware attestation, and Samsung to create the mobile Trusted Execution
Environment (TEE) as an extension of their existing SoC capabilities
TWOSENSE.AI's machine learning technology models the unique behavior of
each user, such as the way they walk, interact with their phone, commute
to work, and how and where they spend their time. Through the power of
deep learning, algorithms are highly personalized, learning the personal
characteristics that make each user unique on an individual level. The
product leverages mobile and workstation behavioral biometrics, as well
as proximity, to create invisible continuous multi-factor authentication
for the workplace. Continuous authentication drastically reduces the
risk of a breach while improving the user experience by removing
authentication challenges, creating the world's first secure yet
user-friendly employee authentication platform.
TWOSENSE.AI is a New York company focused on a deep learning-based
artificial intelligence that recognizes the behavior of the authorized
user. TWOSENSE.AI is helmed by a team with PhD machine learning
expertise, years of enterprise application building experience and a
leadership background in cybersecurity. TWOSENSE.AI offers a b2b SAAS
product that invisibly authenticates users by their behavior,
drastically reducing organizational risk and improving usability.
