Romanian behavioural biometrics startup TypingDNA has raised an undisclosed figure in their latest financing round.

The round was led by Gecad Ventures with money also coming from Adrian Gheara, Alexandru Negrea, Lucian Todea, and Dan Mihaescu, reports GeekTime.

Typing DNA uses typing speed, movements and possibly keypad pressure to detect remote access hacks or attempts by an unauthorized user to use a machine.

They have participated in MVP Academy, Hub: raum Accelerators, and Microsoft Bootcamp, according to capital.ro (Romanian).

“We managed to develop an innovative technology with multiple applications in fields such as e-learning, e-banking, corporate and much more,” TypingDNA Co-Founder and CEO Raul Popa said in a statement. “By partnering with an investment fund, such as Gecad Ventures, and by involving some investors with entrepreneurial experience in the IT and cyber-security field we can maximize the potential of this technology.”

“Passwords, face unlock, fingerprint and so on are easy to be replicated/stealed. But your behavior is very hard, if not impossible, to be replicated,” Popa said back in July. “The fundamental of TypingDNA is the technology we built around typing biometrics security.”
