Citing demand for behavioural biometrics, Plurilock Security Solutions has grown its US footprint with two new East Coast locations.

The company has also added and additional staff to expand commercial and government market access to its continuous user validation cybersecurity platform.

Driven by two new notable financial services clients and recent contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense's Defense Innovation Unit Experimental (DIUx) and U.S. Army NETCOM, Plurilock has added offices in New York and Baltimore and welcomed a new Director of Sales for the Atlantic Region.

The firm has said this is a strategic move that will provide "boots on the ground" to serve both enterprise and public-sector entities that require a more sophisticated approach to cybersecurity beyond traditional login authentication.

The expansion is made possible in part by a recent round of angel investment from an international team that includes former Microsoft Bing search architect, founder/CEO of Powerset (acquired by Microsoft) and artificial intelligence expert Barney Pell; fintech-focused Mike Benna, general partner at Stanley Park Ventures; and Colin Harris, a special limited partner with Yaletown Partners.

Plurilock has also inked partnership deals with the Microsoft Azure BizSpark and SAP Startup Focus programs, along with a teaming agreement and technology alliance program agreement with a major Fortune 100 enterprise IT firm. In addition, the company was accepted into the iCyberCenter@bwtech, a program that recruits high-potential international cyber companies into the Maryland economy.
