Are you who you say you are
Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 23, 2009
Delfigo Security, the pioneer in intelligent authentication solutions, today launched DSGateway™ multifactor authentication (MFA) for iPhone users. Organizations that deploy DSGateway can offer full authentication for web applications without needing to deploy new software or policies to support mobile devices. A recent Gartner report, 'Competitive Landscape: Mobile Devices, Worldwide, 2Q09' cited 27 percent growth in worldwide adoption of smartphones, underscoring the importance that organizations deploy full authentication solutions for these devices to protect their assets and customer privacy.
Users type on smartphones differently than they do on full keyboards. DSGateway captures their unique keystrokes along with other identity factors to score and authenticate iPhone users ensuring mobile security. DSGateway uniquely verifies the identity of a mobile user using the biometric, geospatial, and system parameters associated with that device.
"As the proliferation of smartphones continues in businesses, organizations are looking for ways to leverage their mobile platforms beyond email and calendaring to access applications and data that sit behind the firewall" said Philippe Winthrop, research director in Strategy Analytics' Global Wireless Practice. "This increased interest in accessing data behind firewalls requires that organizations deploy security solutions that include multifactor authentication as part of an information and data loss protection strategy."
"Other authentication solutions offering mobile device support use the device as a channel to communicate login and password information or as a simple one-time password (OTP) device," said Ralph Rodriguez, CEO and Founder at Delfigo Security. "Delfigo incorporates full multi-factor authentication (MFA), including biometrics, into our mobile device support ensuring the security of the user's information. For example, a bank utilizing DSGateway can accurately determine if the user of a mobile device is the bank's actual customer. With this knowledge, the bank is able to better protect its customer's information, accounts and reduce operating costs associated with fraud and identity theft."
About Delfigo Security
Delfigo Security is the pioneer in intelligent authentication solutions. The company's patent-pending artificial intelligence 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.
Built on true zero-footprint cloud architecture, DSGateway provides unmatched manageability and ease of installation, lowering total cost of ownership (TCO). Organizations rely on Delfigo Security to reduce fraud, meet compliance demands, or provide tiered access to member services. Delfigo's premier authentication platform validates the user, not the machine.
