ii2P, IT self-service specialists, today launched MyLOK™, a revolutionary advancement in secure password management technology. MyLOK is a USB-based password manager that enables users to securely encrypt all of their passwords and login information – for Internet, intranet and desktop applications – and access it with one personal identification number (PIN).
The PIN makes MyLOK password management as convenient as an ATM card. Its MULTOS™ smart chip, the most secure smart chip in the world, ensures that IDs and passwords remain secure. And, its USB stick form makes it completely portable among PCs and Windows OS tablets. MyLOK currently works with users’ Firefox or Internet Explorer browsers, or users can access the pre-loaded browsers when they’re on a computer or tablet they don’t fully trust. Macintosh and Google Chrome compatibility are coming soon.
The MyLOK device contains an optional random generator for ultra-secure passwords. Users can back up data in encrypted form on their PCs in case of a lost MyLOK device.
The enterprise version of MyLOK provides all the same benefits, but additionally allows for true single sign-on and helps eliminate expensive and frustrating password reset phone calls. MyLOK is configurable for customized secure questions and supports split credential login requirements.
“About a year and a half ago, while discussing the overwhelming volume of calls to corporate help desks for simple password resets, the concept of MyLOK was hatched,” said ii2P CEO and Founder, Steve Carter. “Why not make it convenient to manage passwords, and at the same time keep the information highly secure – far better than writing them on sticky notes or using the same password for all accounts? MyLOK eliminates frustration for users and help desk costs for corporate IT departments. It’s a simple concept that nobody has executed well before now.”
Most password management software stores personal information in the “cloud,” which has been proven, time and again, to be insecure. Competing USB systems were designed as flash storage devices first, with password management as an afterthought. But, MyLOK was designed from the ground up to be convenient, secure and portable – the perfect password manager. In addition, the comprehensive level of support offered by ii2P far exceeds anything offered by competitors.
One PIN replaces allthe login IDs and passwords people struggle to remember – or worse, write down where they can easily be stolen and used to access accounts. With MyLOK, users must have two forms of authentication – both the device and the PIN –to access information.Lose the device? No problem – anybody who tries to access information would need the PIN. If physically tampered with, the MULTOS chip self-destructs.MyLOK customers get a convenient way to manage their passwords and free themselves from worrying about identity theft.
Convenient. Secure. Portable. MyLOK is the best password management solution for personal or business needs. MyLOK devices can be ordered online today at http://mylok.ii2p.com/.
