The majority of enterprises still use user ID and password as their only standard authentication criteria. With fraud on the rise, enterprises are finding themselves at risk of non-compliance with regulatory mandates as well as increased business risk
Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 14, 2009
Delfigo Security, the pioneer in intelligent authentication solutions, announced today they are offering a 90 - Day free trial of DSGateway™ in a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) mode for enterprises and organizations. DSGateway™ will help organizations ensure secure access to their enterprise systems, customer portals, and business-to-business portals. DSGateway requires no external hardware or software and uses multiple factors including biometrics to validate users accessing the system and enables traceability for compliance audits where necessary.
"The majority of enterprises still use user ID and password as their only standard authentication criteria. With fraud on the rise, enterprises are finding themselves at risk of non-compliance with regulatory mandates as well as increased business risk", said Bharat Nair, Vice President of Product Strategy. Mr. Nair continued, "Companies are reluctant to move ahead with second factor authentication solutions because of two primary concerns - Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and managing the distribution and lifecycle across a large user base of devices or digital certificates. DSGateway solves both of these primary concerns with our zero-footprint multifactor authentication (MFA) platform using only your existing Internet browser."
The 90-day trial is a fully operational environment where companies can make secure authentication requests over the cloud to ensure true authenticity of their end-users without inconveniencing them. There are no end user downloads or installs necessary for the system to be functional - which makes it very easy for an enterprise with, for example, 2,500 to over 1 million users to quickly and easily roll out a strong MFA platform. The free trial is offered as a software service over the cloud. Simply download and integrate DSGateway Client API into your web application to make it operational.
Unlike competing products that only use a mobile device as a One Time Password (OTP), DSGateway uses multiple factors including keystroke dynamics, system, and geospatial parameters to authenticate users. DSGateway can leverage existing Challenge Response Questions (CRQ) to further authenticate the user or utilize any SMS or email for OTP. These capabilities are built into the DSGateway platform and incorporates 'what you know', 'what you have' and 'who you are' into the authentication equation.
DSGateway uses several advanced mathematical algorithms and advanced artificial intelligence (AI) to compute a Confidence Factor (CF) based on the observed identity factors. Only DSGateway enables organizations to configure 'tolerance levels' to match their internal risk mitigation strategies and policies. The unique use of the Confidence Factor allows organizations to be more flexible and not locked into an all-in, all-out approach to authentication.

About Delfigo Security
Delfigo Security is the pioneer in intelligent authentication solutions. The company's patent-pending AI based DSGateway™ security platform is uniquely positioned to answer the question, 'Are you who you say you are,' when a user accesses a system. Using multiple identity factors including keystroke dynamics, geospatial location and system parameters, Delfigo evaluates each user to assign a Confidence Factor (CF) and transparently provides the appropriate level of system access. Organizations that use DSGateway know their users are not unduly burdened by the system with long validation procedures, false negatives preventing access, or the need to carry additional hardware.
