Learn about us and how can UNLOQ help secure your application

What is UNLOQ

UNLOQ is a distributed authentication and authorisation system that increases the security of your digital properties without requiring your users to remember any passwords. Depending on the angle you look at it and the specific use case, is:

  • An IdaaS (identity as a service) or AaaS (authentication as a service) with a focus on providing a secure authentication solution for a service's users. UNLOQ does not rely on external solutions like Active Directory, LDAP, social logins or internal credentials database, but proposes a proprietary system where users, once on-boarded, can use their phone to authenticate with a service.
  • A software based second factor authentication solution. Third party services may decide to keep their current authentication system and implement UNLOQ as a second factor authentication service.
  • A supplier of personal encryption keys that a service could use to encrypt users' data in the browser, thus ensuring zero-knowledge at the service level. One specific use case would be an EMR (electronic medical records system) that uses UNLOQ as a provider of personal encryption keys for each of their patients. These will be used to encrypt and decrypt their records in the browser. UNLOQ also provides ways for such a system to allow their users to collaborate on encrypted data.
  • A platform for generating custom mobile applications with a focus on security applications. The generated applications will contain all of the security features that exist in UNLOQ mobile app and can include up to 3 custom pages. UNLOQ also offers ways to customize the language, emails, web pages and other aspects of the generated mobile app.
  • A communication platform where a service can leverage push notifications to send customised messages or collect feedback.

We recognize that different organizations have different problems or follow various opportunities and we've been amazed by the ingenuity we've seen in combining our set of features. Please contact us if you'd like a one-on-one session to assess your case and discuss potential solutions.

We protect you from cyber attacks via:

  • User authentication
    UNLOQ offers 3 authentication mechanisms:
    • Multi-factor authentication through push notification (using out of band communication)
    • Multi-factor authentication through time-based one-time-password (TOTP)
    • Email login
  • Transaction authorisation
    Companies can send push notifications on a user's mobile phone for approval before an action is performed. This is made to protect sensitive actions on applications such as financial transactions or access to a different part of the application.
  • Data at rest
    Provides businesses with a personal encryption keys per user.

All UNLOQ's technologies come in a white label, custom mobile and application that opens a new communication channel for your business with the help of push notifications and questionnaires.
