IBIA Welcomes New Members
Center for Unified Biometrics and Sensors (CUBS) at the University of Buffalo advances the scientific underpinnings of biometric technologies for both civilian and homeland security applications by integrating pattern recognition and machine learning algorithms with sensor technology. CUBS pursues research and development activities in machine learning through two strategic application areas – biometrics and language technologies. The Center, which was established in 2003, works on government projects, develops prototype devices for industry, organizes major technical conferences, and trains graduate students.
BehaviosecA company based in Sweden that specializes in strong, multilayered customer security. Behaviosec uses machine learning and behavioral biometrics to stop fraud, prevent attacks, and verify customers — all without slowing them down. Behaviosec’s products authenticate users based not on what they do, but on how they do it. Its algorithm can verify identity based on their natural interaction with a device, delivering instant identity verification and continuous authentication without special sensors or new hardware.
AwareA leading global provider of biometrics software products, services, and solutions. Aware’s products include all the software components necessary for collection, management, and utilization of identity data for biometric identification and verification. These products fulfill critical biometric functionality for a variety of applications including border management, law enforcement, defense, intelligence, banking, and payments. Aware is a publicly held company (NASDAQ: AWRE) based in Bedford, Massachusetts.

TwoSense, Inc. is building continuous authentication for mobile devices through Behavioral Biometrics. Our product is a mobile SDK that can be integrated into any mobile application with a few lines of code. It observes and models the physical, digital, spatial and temporal behavior of the user, and can authenticate against that model at any time. This single point of mobile integration is made possible by the first commercial application of Deep Learning to mobile behavioral data. Behavioral Biometrics secures even weak credentials through multi-factor authentication such that only the authorized user authenticates, while reducing friction in the user interface to 0.
