Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 2, 2011
AuthenWare®, a leading cybersecurity software provider, today announced that it has entered into a reseller agreement with PiK-SYS, allowing it to resell the company’s flagship multi-factor authentication security software. PiK-SYS is a Hungarian information technology (IT) consulting firm, focused on delivering high-value security solutions to the financial services and pharmaceutical industries as well as to government agencies. The AuthenWare technology incorporates keystroke dynamics, a form of behavioral biometrics, to recognize valid users and to stop identity theft, web fraud and other system intrusions.
“PiK-SYS is focused on strongly securing access to online banking, remote systems and other critical applications for their Hungarian clients,” said Tom Helou, President and COO of AuthenWare. “They selected AuthenWare because we provide a zero user impact solution that ensures the availability, integrity and confidentiality of their systems and personal information.”
AuthenWare’s zero-footprint approach towards user validation and authentication incorporates a series of biometric security algorithms that record and measure how a person uniquely types their credentials. The multi-dimensional product combines the user’s typing information with other behavioral and environmental heuristics to ensure that any stolen credentials are rendered completely useless.
“Regrettably, most credentials can be easily stolen or guessed thanks to social engineering or carelessness by the user’s part,” said Mária Pistár, Managing Director of PiK-SYS. “With AuthenWare we have found an intelligent, innovative, easy-to-deploy and user-friendly solution that meets the highest security demands to eliminate this issue.”
AuthenWare’s partnership with PiK-SYS builds upon the company’s goal to deliver strong security solutions across the globe.
