Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) February 23, 2011
SecureIQ (http://www.secure-iq.com), a global leader in managed information security services and solutions, today announced its new AuthentiQate Secure Gateway. The AuthentiQate Secure Gateway works with SecureIQ’s wide range of hard and soft tokens and offers application layer firewalling to protect against common web attacks.
“With cyber attacks on the rise, legacy computer systems and web servers are more vulnerable than ever before. Despite this growing need, adding secure remote access to existing web applications can be difficult and expensive,” said Jim Zalnasky, Vice President of Marketing, SecureIQ. “Our new AuthentiQate Secure Gateway solves this problem by front-ending physical web servers and adding strong two-factor authentication to existing applications.”
The AuthentiQate Secure Gateway supports one time passwords (OTP) and strong two-factor authentication, eliminating the risk of password sniffing and other hacker exploits. Offering full web application masking, it ensures that potential cyber attacks never reach protected web applications. It also scales easily to accommodate medium-sized businesses and large organizations, including financial institutions, government agencies, healthcare entities and corporations. Most importantly, it is fully transparent to web applications and servers, thereby eliminating the costly expense of rewriting or scrapping aging web programs or applications. Customers can also use the product to add encrypted SSL capabilities to their web applications without changing code on their servers.
SecureIQ has exhibited and demonstrated this new technology at several recent international trade shows. With more companies storing sensitive personal and financial information online, web attacks have continued to escalate. SecureIQ's customer base has responded enthusiastically to this innovative new product.
