DIGITALEUROPE is proud to introduce TypingDNA among the selected SMEs to participate in the Future Unicorn Award. This Romanian company is driving the digitisation of SMEs and enterprises by creating Typing DNA, which is a future for customer authentication. Instead of cumbersome passwords & 2 factor authentication, it recognises people by the way they type, thus providing new solution in preventing online fraud, reducing account sharing or stopping people from cheating.
The company was founded in 2016 and had a rapid development, creating proprietary artificial intelligence algorithms to authenticate users based on how they type. Typing biometrics, also known as keystroke dynamics, are utilized in a variety of use cases such as authentication, fraud detection, password recovery, and online education assessment to authenticate users more securely than traditional forms of two-factor authentication.
Other compelling arguments that support typing biometrics’ popularity in the next future are the global regulation impacting face recognition-based authentication and the increased hacking attempts targeting SMS-based two-factor authentication.
The company develops several products offering high-security alternatives and seamless user experience: commercial authentication API suitable for online biometric authentication and enforcing reset passwords. The product can be integrated into any corporate or consumer app, including SaaS, web apps, online learning, and payment providers, to enable two-factor authentication.
The Pan-European Future Unicorn Award aims to highlight innovative SMEs that have the potential to become Europe’s next unicorns. The award is compiled by asking all the national trade associations affiliated with DIGITALEUROPE to nominate a single SME from their country. This results in a truly pan-European selection of incredible digital companies from all sectors.
The award will be delivered at our flagship event, Masters of Digital, in Brussels on 6 February.
