Typing biometric authentication is a less invasive form of MFA we call simultaneous authentication, because it uses something people are already doing (typing). The passive nature of the authentication takes the burden off the user creating a frictionless and simultaneous access method. Optimal IdM uses simultaneous authentication to provide increased security and improve the MFA experience for users.

What is a Virtual Directory Server?

Essentially, a virtual directory server is a way to visualize the data between applications that are fundamentally incompatible, as well as directory servers and data stores that are incompatible. A virtual directory abstracts back-end data from client software applications, which makes it possible to change the presentation of the data dynamically, but your data stays in its original format and place.
