Describe your company's current technology and solutions
As a security camera in a store, F8th secures your online platform by recording and analyzing user sessions in real-time. F8th uses machine learning that can identify users and fraudsters via 100s of patterns of how an individual uses their mouse, keyboard, touchscreen and other inputs. It continuously analyzes typing speed, movement speed, clicking speed, acceleration, and more, and then builds a behavioural profile.

Are you aware of any current government challenges or opportunities that would be addressed by using your technology solution? Or a future need you can identify?
The government needs to improve their identity security with more innovative solutions. Cyber-crime is now the world's biggest criminal growth industry the world has ever seen. For that reason, there is plenty of government projects that help the industry of the Identity and Access Management (IAM).

As example, the Digital ID & Authentication Council of Canada (DIACC) is committed to unlocking economic opportunities for Canadian consumers, and businesses by providing the framework to develop a robust, secure, scalable and privacy-enhancing digital identification and authentication ecosystem that will decrease costs for everyone while improving service delivery and driving GDP growth. In collaboration with SecureKey, F8th would be an extra layer of security that could be add on any level of their product.

As the COVID crisis continues, please describe specific opportunities where your technology might support Canadian needs / government needs
Due to the Covid-19 situation, corporations trend toward remote working. Consequently, there is a rising risk of internal actors such as partners or teenagers that could easily access the credential from the employee residence, and then access, or worse, damage the corporation data. With F8th, corporations can be sure that only their employees can access the sensitive information.
