Earlier this month, Victoria’s Plurilock announced that it has been awarded new contracts by the United States Department of Homeland Security and the Canadian Department of National Defence and Canadian Armed Forces. The deals are for ADAPT, Plurilock’s invisible, risk-based authentication technology.
Previously, Plurilock used Innovate BC’s Tech-Coop Grant Program to hire a student that helped accelerate their development cadence and allowed for the flexibility for them to experiment with new product ideas.
“The market is really hungry," says Plurilock CEO Ian Paterson. "Companies are frantically looking for a way to deploy multi-factor authentication without harming delicately balanced user experiences or bottom lines, which is what we offer with ADAPT. It’s amazing to see such rapid uptake just as we ink new deals with federal agencies.”
The Department of Homeland Security contract is funded through the Department’s Silicon Valley Innovation Program in which Plurilock is one of only three non-U.S. companies, and the only Canadian company, represented.
