Overview

In 2006 a technical team with a deep understanding of knowledge discovery, pattern recognition and analysis began early development on elements of the current technology. By 2008 the team had begun primarily focusing on real–time behavioral-biometrics (the quantification of human behavior in digital environments) and created a behavior-based scoring platform that measures micro–distributions of human interactions with electronic devices. This technology was designed to advance the art of behavioral- biometrics in its accuracy, speed and scalability.

In 2010 Identity Metrics (IDM) was founded to expand and accelerate the innovative technical groundwork that had been initiated during the prior years.
