SecuredTouch is an authentication assessment system that uses innovative biometric technology to continuously monitor desktop and, especially, mobile devices to detect identity theft. As people become more reliant on their smartphones and tablets, it is apparent that extra steps need to be taken to keep their personal information secure. What makes this authentication assessment system innovative is its lack of passwords.

E&T writes, "The SecuredTouch algorithms--which are identified with a set of specific user characteristics, based primarily on touch--are able to detect minute changes in behaviour which are not compatible with that of the authorised user and alert the system administrator or perform preventative measures to keep personal information safe." Through this sophisticated authentication assessment system, businesses and everyday users will be able to stand up against hackers.
