Marketwired

EDISON, NJ--(Marketwired - Nov 21, 2013) - StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: SFOR), a company that specializes in Cyber Security solutions for the prevention of Data Breaches and Cyber Theft, announced today a strategic partnership with VigiTrust, the industry's leading Security Awareness and PCI Compliance Specialist.

"We are very excited to partner with VigiTrust," says, Mark L. Kay, CEO of StrikeForce. "VigiTrust is a global leader in helping companies meet and maintain PCI security compliance. The new PCI-DSS 3.0 standard which becomes effective January 1st 2014 was developed to encourage and enhance cardholder data security and facilitate the broad adoption of consistent data security measures globally. In order for organizations to meet these new PCI security requirements, they are required to implement security solutions allowing entities to assign a unique ID to each user, track system component usage and encrypt data in transit and at rest. StrikeForce's patented ProtectID® Multi-Factor Authentication technology and GuardedID® Keystroke Encryption technologies not only enable this but help reduce PCI-DSS scope for merchants and PSPs. StrikeForce anticipates increased revenues from this new partnership."

"We look forward to working with the StrikeForce team," says Mathieu Gorge, CEO of VigiTrust. "Their ProtectID Multi-Factor Authentication and GuardedID Keystroke Encryption solutions are well positioned to help entities not only achieve but also maintain compliance with PCI-DSS thus fostering continuous compliance. That's why we invited them to address our clients at our upcoming PCI-DSS Strategy Workshop in NYC on December 3rd, located at 345 Park Ave inside the Irish Consulate office. This one day workshop will cover everything that an organization needs to know in order to achieve and maintain compliance at all times, how to build & manage a PCI-DSS team and what to expect in the new PCI-DSS 3.0 regulations.
