Clouds Battle to Prove Security
EDISON, NJ–(Marketwire – Jun 19, 2012) – StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: SFOR), creators of two factor out-of-band authentication and anti-keylogging keystroke encryption, today announced a solution designed to improve the security of private and public clouds. StrikeForce cloud solution is already being used by millions through an OEM pilot program with a few major providers.
“Cloud systems that rely on a single password for user authentication put their customers at risk. Without providing at least one other form of out-of-band authentication, it’s not a matter of if hackers will get in–it’s a matter of when,” said Linda Musthaler, principal analyst with Essential Solutions Corp. “Cloud security is a key criterion in the decision making process, so vendors that can show a higher level of protection will have an enormous advantage.”
“It’s easy to be critical of cloud security when you see read stories about breaches nearly every day,” said George Waller, EVP of StrikeForce. “Today’s hackers are too savvy to be stopped by antivirus and security appliances. They just aren’t enough. But adding more solutions is increasing the complexity, but doing little to improve the actual security.”
StrikeForce has been working on the problem for more than ten years and has developed and patented two technologies that, when combined, provide a higher level of security than anything on the market. “We have been speaking with savvy cloud providers to showcase how combining out-of-band authentication with keystroke encryption can make their cloud more secure than any others, including household names with very deep pockets,” added Waller. “Cloud vendors owe themselves a look; otherwise they are doing a major disservice to their customers.”
