By integrating MyPW into our OpenID server, we have created a secure solution that allows people to use OpenID without compromising security
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 20, 2007
MyPW LLC today announced that iamdentity is now a MyPW-protected service provider, allowing MyPW tokens to be used at over one thousand OpenID enabled sites through iamdentity's OpenID server.
MyPW's recent launch of its service provider product opens the door to any Internet connected service to implement the MyPW Authentication API at no cost whatsoever. This will allow the service's security-minded users to subscribe directly to MyPW for the added layer of protection that MyPW's two-factor authentication provides.
"It took us less than 24 hours to completely integrate MyPW into all our services," said Phillip Malan, Director of iamdentity Ltd, "making this one of the easiest integrations we've ever done. Partnering with MyPW enhances our services considerably by offering our users the security they need."
MyPW will offer 100 free subscriptions to users of iamdentity who subscribe to the MyPW service through their iamdentity MyPW settings page. MyPW will choose 100 accounts at random on the last day of April, 2007. These randomly selected users will receive a full year's credit to their account as a way of welcoming iamdentity users to MyPW.
"By integrating MyPW into our OpenID server, we have created a secure solution that allows people to use OpenID without compromising security," added Malan. "We're also happy to offer a solution our customers want at a price they can easily afford."
"The speed with which iamdentity implemented our API into its Open ID solution surpassed even my own expectations," said Brian Cartmell, CEO of MyPW. "They were up and running with MyPW in next to no time at all, which is exactly how we designed the system to operate. We're obviously very pleased."
MyPW's service provider solution allows any site to implement the MyPW authentication API at no cost whatsoever. Users or customers who want the added level of security that MyPW offers can then subscribe directly to the MyPW service for only $19.95 a year (price includes the two-factor token).
