Tolly Group Report Gives High Marks to BioPassword's Keystroke Biometric Solution

BioPassword's Software Achieves Over 99% Accuracy Rate

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - August 13, 2007) - BioPassword, Inc., the leader in strong authentication software, today announced the availability of The Tolly Group report reviewing the accuracy and functionality of BioPassword's Enterprise Edition. The Tolly Group, a leading global provider of third-party validation services for vendors of IT products, components and services, tested the BioPassword solution and found that BioPassword Enterprise Edition was 99.2% accurate when detecting imposters trying to log into existing user accounts with legitimate credentials. In addition, the report found that the BioPassword solution was 98% accurate in determining and granting access to legitimate users.

The Test: The Tolly Group tested BioPassword Enterprise Edition to evaluate the accuracy and effectiveness of its software-based biometric authentication solution to allow legitimate end users to logon to their accounts without issues, while also offering high security for user accounts when credentials have been shared or compromised.

The tests aimed to show that keystroke dynamics authentication (capturing users' typing rhythms) provides a viable alternative to token-based authentication -- simply and effectively, without changing user behavior.

Test Highlights: Tolly Group engineers installed BioPassword Enterprise Edition on a standard Windows Server 2003 Active Directory environment with Windows XP clients. Over 100 users were enrolled (with 100% effectiveness), generating over 11,000 logons. BioPassword Enterprise Edition was 99.2% accurate when detecting imposters trying to log into existing user accounts with legitimate credentials. In addition, the report found that the BioPassword solution was 98% accurate in determining and granting access to legitimate users.
