The Israel-based authentication company BioCatch announced today that the U.S. Patent Office has granted the company two new patents that extend its ability to authenticate PC and mobile device users through cloud-based behavioral biometrics.

The BioCatch patents allow developers to authenticate users through various physiological factors, including palm size, press size, hand tremors and eye-hand coordination, as well as behavioral factors such as touch and measurements taken by the phone’s accelerometer (a component that measures tilt and motion).
