Founder and CEO, Mayukh Gon expressed excitement at being nominated for this prestigious award. “This is great news for us and I would like to thank the CATAAlliance for recognizing the innovative nature of our offering and the importance of securing identity at a time when data security and privacy is breached on a daily basis. I think consumers deserve protection for their online identities, passwords, and most importantly their privacy. I wanted to give users a simple way to take charge of their own security and privacy. SmartSignin is the only Identity solution for consumers and enterprises that delivers convenience enhanced by robust security. Our cookie-less architecture, token free authentication, and patented Smart-Key algorithm developed in a Joint-venture with the University of Toronto, ensures no single point of weakness.”
Last year the world witnessed the highest number of breaches ever across both government and enterprise sectors. There were also high profile breaches that compromised tens of millions of individuals’ digital identities. According to 2011 Javelin trends research, targeted attacks against high-profile organizations as the FBI, CIA and Sony, have motivated consumers to improve their security practices. Today more than ever consumers need to secure their credentials and private information as they are at the mercy of the poor security measures in use at most websites.
SmartSignin was developed with a non-technical user in mind. Most solutions available in today’s marketplace are designed for large enterprises. The few available to small businesses and individuals are expensive, insecure, need collaboration, and are far too complicated for ordinary users to comprehend. With the inevitable growth of cloud computing and the increase in security breaches, SmartSignin strives to provide a secure way for all web users, both enterprise and individual, to take charge of their own online identities in a simple way, while maintaining privacy, integrity and data security.
SmartSignin is currently in closed beta. Free access to the SmartSignin beta is available by invitation. Signup to be on the wait list at http://tiny.cc/smartsignin
