Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 15, 2009
Mitto, a leading provider of Internet password storage and management, today announced its support of National Cyber Awareness Security Month. Throughout October, the National Cyber Security Alliance (http://www.staysafeonline.org) and its partners are engaging in awareness campaigns designed to inform the public of the importance of keeping their online passwords secure and the steps they can take to ensure security.
The NCSA is promoting vigilance against password fraud 365 days a year during the month of October, a sentiment echoed by Mitto. As a leading password manager, Mitto offers customers multiple layers of protection to keep their passwords safe along with an easy and secure password organizer that allows them to access their private accounts without having to remember multiple passwords.
"Given the continuing escalation of cyber crime and password theft, it's very important for Web users to understand how to keep their passwords secure," said Arsen Ovanessoff, CEO of Mitto. "We support the efforts of the NCSA to promote Web security through National Cyber Awareness Month and remain committed to providing our clients with the best password storage solution possible."
A recent report by McAfee says that malware designed to steal online passwords has risen by 40 percent in the past year alone. Along with other password hackers attempting to manually crack log-in information, people are more vulnerable than ever to password theft. Anyone from home users doing their banking online to small businesses that rely on the Internet to conduct their activities are possible targets.
Unlike password programs that are tied to one computer, Mitto.com offers a solution that can be accessed securely from any computer with Internet access. By logging into their Mitto account, a Web surfer can get access to their important Web log-in information with just one click of a mouse.
