Nymi unveils two-factor authentication from your wrist at Dreamforce

SAN FRANCISCO – Toronto-based wearables startup Nymi Inc. was at Dreamforce showing off a new problem that its wristband can solve for enterprises – securely delivering two-factor authentication.

We spoke with Nymi CEO Karl Martin, sporting an orange Nymi Band of his own, about how the smart wearable is putting its identity-authenticating potential into action. The device, which uses Nymi’s software to detect the wearer’s unique heartbeat rhythm and use it to gain secure access, can now issue two-factor authentication tokens.

In our video above on the Dreamforce floor, in the IoT zone, Martin explains the new feature and shows off accessing his locked MacBook without need to type in a password.

After you’re done watching that, check out our photo recap of this week’s Dreamforce event over on ITWorldCanada.com.
