EDISON, NJ--(Marketwire -07/17/12)- StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. (SFOR), creators of out-of-band authentication and anti-keylogging keystroke encryption, today announced that a strategic partnership with TradeHarbor has resulted in the industry's first "three-factor" voice verification solution. The new multi-factor solution meets the highest level of regulatory compliance by combining all three critical factors: who you are, what you have & what you know, over a mobile device.
TradeHarbor is an industry leader in voice verification software and StrikeForce is the creator and patent holder of multi-factor out-of-band authentication, which also includes biometric authentication methods. This is the same proven technology in StrikeForce's ProtectID® authentication solution which is used by many of the industry leaders who have avoided breaches.
"Combining voice verification and out-of-band authentication together to help prevent online fraud was a natural integration waiting to happen," said Mark L. Kay, CEO of StrikeForce. "We can now offer a higher level of security with choices at a fair price."
Three-factor voice verification is ideally suited to protect the industries that most appear in the crosshairs of hackers, including:
- Financial Services
- Healthcare Providers
- Online Retailers
- Government Agencies
- Public Sector Organizations
- Construction Facilities
"This combined offering is a ground-breaking new approach to authentication that provides a level of accountability that has not been available before," noted Paul Heirendt, CEO of TradeHarbor. "With the proliferation of mobile devices and mobile applications, enterprises need strong multi-factor authentication and accountability to provide the security for BYOD, which allows users to access sensitive data on their own devices."
The solution, available as a web service, enables an enterprise to offer its customers a consistent authentication experience across all of its business units and on any of its platforms. Each verification interaction produces a legally-binding voice signature combined with out-of-band authentication, which includes an audit trail to mitigate repudiation by the person being authenticated.
"It provides a consistent user experience and has proven to add high security while providing increased convenience and flexibility," added Heirendt. "Since this total three-factor voice authentication solution is provided as Software as a Service, it minimizes capital expenditures, minimizes internal development resource requirements, time to market, and boosts the ROI resulting from cost savings and customer acquisition & retention."
StrikeForce Technologies (SFOR) is the creator and key patent holder for two factor out-of-band authentication as well as an anti-keylogging keystroke encryption technology (patent pending). The company's GuardedID anti-keylogging keystroke encryption technology prevents keylogger malware from stealing personal, business, financial information and passwords. Their software protects over four million individuals and businesses in over 100 countries from identity theft and data breaches. StrikeForce's ProtectID out-of-band authentication technology is the only platform to offer eight different out-of-band methods, including phone, voice, instant messaging, hard tokens, and desktop/mobile tokens.
