In a remarkable achievement, Cursor Insight, a Hungarian-founded company with operations in the United Kingdom, clinched the coveted Cyber Defence Product of the Year award at the prestigious British National Cyber Awards 2023. This recognition highlights the exceptional quality of Cursor Insight’s continuous authentication solution, Graboxy Sentinel Online, which leverages cutting-edge technology to bolster cybersecurity measures. Furthermore, the Hungarian firm also secured a special accolade in the Cyber Innovation of the Year category during the Monday gala event, Telex reported.
Cursor Insight’s journey has been marked by noteworthy milestones. Back in 2015, the company made headlines by outperforming global competitors in a competition aimed at detecting forged signatures, showcasing the prowess of their proprietary algorithm. Notably, even at that early stage, Cursor Insight had ambitions to employ their technology for categorizing internet users based on their mouse movement patterns, a vision that has since become a reality. Presently,
Cursor Insight specializes in conducting in-depth scientific analyses of human movement,
using their technology to identify and group users based on their unique movement patterns while engaging with computers, mobile devices, and even video recordings.
Operating in both the United Kingdom and Hungary, Cursor Insight is at the forefront of developing biometric applications across cybersecurity, banking, and digital healthcare sectors. Their products have garnered a substantial user base, with Graboxy Sentinel standing out as a prime example. This award-winning solution harnesses the power of artificial intelligence, particularly machine learning algorithms, to perform real-time user authentication by monitoring cursor movements within web browsers.
While this approach may seem unconventional, Cursor Insight underscores that the intricate dynamics of fine motor movements during cursor control are just as distinctive as human fingerprints. Consequently, their technology not only facilitates real-time user monitoring but also offers a viable alternative to two-factor authentication and CAPTCHAs through cursor-based verification. Cursor Insight is also actively engaged in developing anti-cheat software, with an ongoing open beta for users of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. (Editor’s note: Global Offensive officially retired as of yesterday, so their software will likely be developed for CS2). This beta enables players to submit match replays, allowing the system to detect cheating based on cursor movements.
