Visual Authentication Simplifies Mobile Security

The data shows users want safety and security, but convenience is of primary importance.

Delfigo Security, the pioneer in intelligent authentication solutions, filed for United States Patent protection (US Serial No: 61/490924) on May 27, 2011 for a visual authentication and authorization method for mobile devices. This new visual approach to authentication combines a simple to use four key color palette that natively embeds on mobile platforms, with Delfigo’s proven keystroke biometric and device ID technology. The result is an effective balance between user experience and effective security.

“Mobile platforms - iPhone, Android, Blackberry - are rapidly becoming the primary device for everyday access to social media, banking, commerce, shopping, and personal entertainment. Having a simple and convenient way to authenticate on the go matters to mobile users.” said Delfigo’s CEO Ralph A. Rodriguez. “The data shows users want safety and security, but convenience is of primary importance. The visual interface makes it easy to quickly input a four color pin. Users avoid the frustration of trying to type difficult passwords on tiny smartphone keyboards or wasting time waiting for an SMS message.”

Delfigo continues to make simple even simpler, providing novel means for users to comfortably engage in mobile security. An easy to use visual interface that combines with cost effective, secure biometric and device elements pushes authentication beyond the weakness of username and password, and the frustration of cumbersome tokens. The market requires more than a lowest common denominator approach aimed at commercially satisfactory security and avoidance of liability. The market requires a commitment to user experience, ease of integration and security that customers can rely upon.
