What is CygnIFyID?

CygniFyID is an end-to-end mobile biometric user authentication Software as a Service. It allows an organization to quickly, easily and inexpensively add face, voice, and fingerprint authentication into any existing security process. It’s so easy, you can authenticate with biometrics anywhere. You become the password.

Banking / Retail

  • A qualifying event (like a retail transaction at a store) starts the process.
  • The transaction vendor server (like a bank) pings the CygniFyID server for an authentication request.
  • The user is asked to submit their biometrics for authentication.
  • Based on the results from the servers, the authentication is approved or denied.

    Step 1

    An individual attempts to access an account or site protected with Cygninet's CygniFyID SaaS system.

    STEP 3

    Cygninet CygniFyID SaaS system sends an authentication request message to the CygniFyID app on the user’s mobile device.

    STEP 2

    The corporate server alerts Cygninet's CygniFyID SaaS system about this request for access, along with the user’s identifier for this request.

    STEP 4

    The user is prompted by the CygniFyID mobile app to capture their biometrics using the CygniFyID app on their mobile device.

    STEP 5

    Cygninet CygniFyID SaaS server compares the user’s biometrics and then returns either an authentication or rejection message back to the corporate server.

    STEP 6

    The corporate server responds to the point-of-origin application, site, or system with an approval or denial of access.

    CygniFyID Use Cases

    Many important use cases exist for adding multi-modal biometric identity authentication to business processes within enterprises, law enforcement, the retail industry, the banking industry, and in healthcare organizations. Some of the most obvious use cases are described below. Using CygniFyID is beneficial any time you need assurance of the identity of the person accessing a system or making a transaction.

    1. Application Access (Direct application login or using Single Sign-On systems)

      - Includes applications that are hosted on premise or in the Cloud.

      - Often provided in conjunction with a Single Sign-On (SSO) product (e.g. CA Single Sign-On, OneLogin, etc.).
      1. Mobile Device Application and Data Security

        - Includes securing access to mobile apps and corporate data accessed from mobile devices.

        - Provided in conjunction with a mobile device management product (e.g. MobileIron, Good Technologies, Citrix XenMobile, etc.).

        1. Password Reset

          - Includes using CygniFyID to authenticate a user before they can reset their password.

          - Generally provided in conjunction with a password reset vendor (e.g. Avatier, Courion, etc.)

    1. Corporate Network Access

      - Includes securing access to corporate networks and data using VPN, Firewalls, etc. (e.g. Aruba, Cisco AnyConnect, F5 Networks, etc.).

      - Can replace or supplement token devices, such as RSA SecureID and other products.
      1. Enterprise Data Security

        - Includes securing access to cloud or hybrid corporate data storage systems (e.g. Box, DropBox, etc.).

        - Recommend using enterprise hybrid storage solutions, like Extenua Cloud2Drive, to provide enterprise security with convenience.

        1. Cloud Access

          - Login access to public cloud systems, such as AWS, Azure,, etc.

          - These cloud services provide SAML or other interfaces that can be used with

    1. Password Manager Products

      - Products that securely store all of your passwords in a software vault for access to all of your devices.

      - The security of the password manager product itself is critical since it stores all of your other passwords.
      - Adding CygniFyID for multi-modal biometric identity authentication to these products is very beneficial.
      1. GPS and Logistic System Integration

        - When a vehicle or person has to be located via GPS, such as in Logistics and Mobile Health applications.

        - The CygniFyID multi-modal biometric identity authentication can provide assurance of the user’s identity for these types of applications.
