Overview of Intelligent Adaptive Authentication

OneSpan Intelligent Adaptive Authentication secures your web and mobile applications by analyzing vast and disparate data acquired through user actions and events. Based on this analysis, Intelligent Adaptive Authentication dynamically assesses which authentication and/or transaction security measures are appropriate for each unique end user.

Intelligent Adaptive Authentication provides hosted solutions to test and build web and mobile applications for login and transaction signing flows.

Integration with Intelligent Adaptive Authentication is simple and extensible, as it will support future authentication technologies without the need to change anything in your integration code.

OneSpan Intelligent Adaptive Authentication uses a trusted device (e.g. a mobile phone using the OneSpan Mobile Security Suite Orchestration SDK) to provide strong multi-factor authentication whenever the risk associated with an action is high.

Intelligent Adaptive Authentication evaluates the risk related to an end-user request through vast data collected from the devices which is then scored with a sophisticated machine-learning engine. Depending on the risk, Intelligent Adaptive Authentication can dynamically adjust the end-user security requirements by requesting step-up authentication for higher risk transactions. Step-up authentication can involve various configurations of device-based, PIN-based, or fingerprint-based, or face recognition-based authentication as needed to fully secure transactions.

Intelligent Adaptive Authentication includes the following features:

  • User authentication
    • With static password
    • With offline one-time password (OTP)
    • FIDO-based
  • Transaction data signing
    • Offline signing
    • FIDO-based signing (UAF only)
  • Administration
    • User management
    • Authenticator management
    • User import
    • Reporting
