Digital Fingerprints uses behavioral biometrics, a machine learning-based approach for identifying users based on their behavior, to add a layer of additional authentication to the login process.
Companies set their thresholds for this score and their own policies for the actions to take at those thresholds, perhaps rerouting some users to secondary authentication, while blocking others.
Misidentification of authorized users as suspicious is certainly possible, so companies should only use the Digital Fingerprints tool along with other authentication methods. That being said, it does an excellent job identifying bots and other types of brute force attacks.
