Global Port Operator Selects AuthenWare to Secure Customs Interactions

We evaluated other biometric solutions such as tokens, security cards, and other traditional solutions but found them to be inadequate for our needs

AuthenWare®, the leader in keystroke biometrics software, today announced that Hutchison Port Holdings Group (HPH) has selected its patent-pending AuthenWare® software to handle the security interactions between its customers and Customs for its Americas operation. HPH is the world's leading port investor, developer and operator.

"We evaluated other biometric solutions such as tokens, security cards, and other traditional solutions but found them to be inadequate for our needs," said Pedro Maidana, CIO at Hutchison. "We selected AuthenWare because it is cost-effective, easy to implement, requires no special hardware, and most importantly, it is non-intrusive to our users."

HPH Americas is implementing AuthenWare to increase the security of the interactions between its customers and customs declaration systems. The company has a portal by which its customers declaring goods entering or leaving port. Using AuthenWare, HPH will be able to ensure that its customers can transact with the customs application safely, and without risk sensitive information being lost, stolen or misused.

AuthenWare offers a radically different approach towards handling security by not only securing information access through keystroke dynamics, but also by rendering any stolen credentials useless. It accomplishes this through a proprietary protocol that creates and maintains a unique personal security pattern for each user every time that he or she enters data using the keyboard (for example, their user name and password). By doing so, AuthenWare delivers the highest levels of security to companies at a very low cost and minimal effort.

"We are proud that HPH Americas has selected AuthenWare for its application security needs," said Tom Helou, president & COO, AuthenWare. "Our unique approach towards keystroke dynamics protects companies against any unauthorized access to sensitive data, making it the ideal solution for organizations of all sizes."
