Replace Hardware Tokens with BYOD

Unbound enables high-trust operations right from the devices your users already own and carry. Give your users excellent user-experience without compromising security.

( let’s talk )

The Burden of Security Should Fall on Apps, Not on Users

High-trust operations performed from end-user devices has typically relied on external, dedicated hardware, such as smart cards and OTP tokens. While highly secure, these methods cause frustration and hassle to both the users who must carry them as well as the provisioning teams who procure and ship them at high costs.

Forcing Users to Carry Dedicated Devices is Bad UX

Carrying additional hardware is cumbersome, especially when users have multiple devices for multiple services
Users tend to forget or lose devices, which is a security risk
Hardware is also costly to deploy and maintain, especially across a large number of employees or customers.

BYOD-as-a-Token Has Been Discouraged for High-Trust Scenarios

BYODs are inherently insecure, as they allow for potentially malicious software to be installed
Storing keys on insecure devices means keys may be lifted off and compromised remotely
It’s not always possible to use manufacturer embedded hardware (e.g. secure elements) but when it is, developers must develop per device

Trust Insecure 'BYO' Devices to Perform Highly-Sensitive Operations without Compromising Security

Unbound Crypto-of-Things (CoT) protects authentication and authorization private keys on any BYOD, regardless of the security posture of the device. A single API allows seamless integration with any desktop or mobile application, so users can carry out high trust operations like document signing, payments, authorization and authentication from the devices they already own. In addition, unlike hardware solutions, CoT provides central control, real-time tamperproof auditing of any cryptographic operation carried out by the user’s device, as well as the option to immediately revoke keys from a central server.

Secure & Easy

No hardware tokens and smart cards – same level of trust, just without the hassle

Elastic and Scalable

Infinitely scalable to support any number of users

Central Control

Centralized management and tamper-proof, real time auditing for any crypto key operation

Flexible

Support your choice of additional authentication: biometrics, PIN, Swipe and more

Any App. Any Device

BYOD as a token on any desktop, mobile or IoT device

Choose Usability. Choose Security. Choose Unbound

Unbound gives you the freedom to choose both UX/CX and security without the hassle of dedicated hardware on any Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).

In this scenario, Unbound integrates with any two-factor authentication app, that can now replace a hardware token used for privileged access.

In this scenario, Unbound CoT is integrated with a mobile banking app to provide secured transactions signing from the end-users device, ensuring non-repudiation along with real-time tamper-proof audit of any signing operation.
