EDISON, NJ--(Marketwire -06/04/12)- StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. (SFOR), creators of two factor out-of-band authentication and anti-keylogging keystroke encryption, today announced a new package aimed at small businesses. StrikeForce's SMB offering combines both GuardedID® and ProtectID® into an affordable bundle that protects these businesses from identity theft and data breaches.
According to a recent data breach study by Verizon, businesses with 11 to 100 employees are by far the most targeted groups being attacked, over 4 times more than the second highest group (101 to 1000). Most of these attacks come from the outside using keylogging malware.
Keyloggers (malware that records every keystroke you type into your computer) are common tools used by hackers to steal user names, passwords, personal and business information. The best anti-virus programs can only detect about 20% of keyloggers and new ones are being developed every day which are able to bypass detection completely. StrikeForce's GuardedID anti-keylogging software protects the SMB by encrypting each and every keystroke in real-time, preventing keyloggers from stealing their data.
"Most small businesses feel that they are safe by using anti-virus programs and firewalls, but for today's cyber criminals, that's child's play," said George Waller, EVP of StrikeForce. "The SMB community has become easy prey; all it takes to get hacked is for one employee to open an infected email, or visit a commonly used website that has been tampered with and is now a harbinger of malware, or, download a presumably safe file from a business associate or friend. Hackers are taking advantage of the common things we do every day to communicate with others."
"Combining our anti-keylogging with our out-of-band authentication will provide military-grade protection to the SMB for a small price tag," says Waller. "ProtectID is our patented out-of-band authentication platform that enables SMB's to use their mobile devices to login to their corporate VPN's, customer contact databases and cloud applications, etc. Our SMB offering protects data from being stolen due to keyloggers and unwanted access due to the lack of two-factor out-of-band authentication."
StrikeForce's SMB offering requires no set up fees and only a three month commitment. Per user pricing is as follows:
1-100 users $5.00 per month 101-500 users $4.00 per month 501-1000 users $3.00 per month

The companies GuardedID anti-keylogging keystroke encryption technology prevents keylogger malware from stealing personal, business, financial information and passwords.
