Global Cloud-Based Authentication Provider Establishes Corporate Headquarters in Manchester, NH; WWPass safeguards sensitive data and user privacy by eliminating usernames and passwords with two-factor authentication.
New Hampshire technology innovators DYN, DEKA and Texas Instruments have a new neighbor - WWPass - a global, cloud-based authentication provider led by Gene Shablygin, an unabashed nuclear physicist turned IT entrepreneur poised to transform the world of online security. Employees, partners and business leaders celebrated the grand opening of WWPass’ new corporate headquarters located in the heart of downtown Manchester and steps from what has been dubbed New Hampshire’s “Silicon Millyard.”
WWPass provides cloud-based authentication that safeguards sensitive data and user privacy with one universal, self-managed PassKey. By combining patented multilateral authentication technology with the PassKey, WWPass eliminates the antiquated and vulnerable username and password combination, ensures that data is isolated, anonymous and unseen across businesses, service providers and applications. In addition, it allows users to authenticate into an unlimited number of WWPass-enabled applications with a single PassKey, eliminating the need to carry multiple authentication credentials.
“WWPass solves one of online security’s biggest problems – how to make impenetrable security that’s also convenient,” said Steven Grant, Vice President of Operations at WWPass. "We have established partnerships with global solution providers like BrightPlanIT and are currently delivering our technology solution to municipalities and health care networks throughout North America. We also have proof of concept agreements in place with multiple Fortune 1000 companies which have fueled our growth. Our workforce has quadrupled in size over the past year and prompted our move from Bedford to a new, larger corporate headquarters in Manchester that will give us the ability to scale over time.”
WWPass was founded by Gene Shablygin, a nuclear physicist turned IT entrepreneur. After graduating Moscow State University with a degree in Theoretical Physics, and working several years in the field of symbolic computations and artificial intelligence, Shablygin launched Jet Info Systems, one of the leading IT solutions providers in Eastern Europe. Shablygin continues to serve as Chairman of the Board of Jet which employs 1,500 people and has annual revenue of about $350 million.
WWPass started with an idea that information can be securely stored in a distributed environment. Several years of intensive research and development turned the idea into a patented working solution, which is used to safeguard personal information and replace vulnerable usernames/passwords with virtually unbreakable authentication systems.
Shablygin and his team specifically chose to launch WWPass in New Hampshire and establish a new corporate headquarters in Manchester. “As a global, cloud-based business, WWPass could literally be located anywhere,” said Shablygin. “We looked all over the country – Silicon Valley, North Carolina’s research triangle, Chicago, Denver and Seattle. However New Hampshire’s bourgeoning high-tech community, access to skilled workforce, and quality of life made it the ideal home for us.”
WWPass is especially focused on developing relationships with the higher education community throughout the state and region. WWPass has established internship relationships with Dartmouth College, Northeastern University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, University of Massachusetts at Amherst and the Imperial College London. “We are deeply committed in harvesting talent from the academic world,” continued Grant. “Internships play a vital role in identifying, recruiting and keeping highly-skilled graduates here in New Hampshire. We recently hired an intern into our IT group and another from Dartmouth played an integral role in a recent solution development.”
WWPass has 70 employees at offices in Manchester, New Hampshire and Moscow, Russia. The company has co-location facilities in Dallas, Montreal, Singapore, and Switzerland. Learn more about WWPass at http://www.wwpass.com.
