CyberArk Introduces Biometric Authentication for Enhanced Security

Organisations of all sizes greatly value security in today's fast-evolving digital ecosystem; traditional password-based authentication techniques no longer adequately protect sensitive data and vital systems as cyber-attacks become increasingly sophisticated and frequent.

Before investigating CyberArk's biometric authentication solution, understand the limitations of password-based and storage solutions.

Though passwords remain popular, they remain susceptible to phishing attacks, brute force attacks, and credential stuffing.

Humans frequently choose weak and easily guessable passwords that repeat across accounts while being stored unsafely, which only heightens security risks further.

Therefore, password-only authentication puts businesses at greater risk for data breaches that could endanger finances and reputation.

Biometric authentication uses unique physical or behavioural traits to verify, such as fingerprinting, face recognition, iris scanning, speech patterns analysis, or gait analysis.

Due to these features, biometric authentication offers greater security and user-friendliness than password authentication.

Biometric data are stored securely across different locations, making them less vulnerable to theft or misuse than password databases.

CyberArk's biometric authentication technology integrates smoothly into its privileged access security platform, facilitating improved enterprise security without disrupting operations or changing infrastructure.

Biometric authentication technology enables multi-factor authentication, which combines biometric information with smart cards or one-time passwords; this form of security reduces the chances of unauthorised entry if even one component becomes compromised.

CyberArk's biometric authentication system uses machine learning algorithms to analyse user behaviour and contextual factors like location and device type.

Information obtained during authentication requests enables organisations to assess risk and tailor authentication factors accordingly; for instance, accessing vital systems from unknown locations may necessitate providing more biometric data or going through a more stringent authentication process.

CyberArk's biometric authentication system supports large deployments and varied use cases; its flexible architecture enables enterprises to tailor authentication procedures accordingly, whether protecting a few privileged accounts or an extensive infrastructure across many locations.

Biometric authentication systems prioritise user experience by streamlining authentication processes to be quick, effortless, and non-disruptive. This helps firms reduce help desk calls while improving user adoption rates and increasing productivity levels.

CyberArk's biometric authentication technology stores biometric information safely and efficiently to prevent unwanted access and abuse of this sensitive data.

Organisations have confidence that their biometric information will be handled responsibly and in compliance with applicable data protection laws such as GDPR or CCPA regulations.

Integration into Existing System Integration CyberArk's biometric authentication solution works seamlessly with cloud platforms, VPNs, and RDP clients to ensure seamless biometric implementation throughout an organisation's infrastructure without costly and time-consuming custom implementation projects.

Biometric authentication in CyberArk's Privileged Access Security Solution may positively affect many businesses that handle sensitive information or are especially susceptible to cyber-attacks.

Security can improve for financial organisations, healthcare providers and government entities alike.

By protecting privileged accounts and sensitive data, companies can reduce breaches, protect their brand image, and increase consumer trust. CyberArk's biometric authentication solution showcases its commitment to innovation and staying ahead of cybersecurity threats.
