Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 22, 2013
Appmosphere, Inc., a leading mobile application development company from Minneapolis, is proud to announce their new software development partnership with Vir-Sec, a virtual security company helping to revolutionize data security for secure communications, especially in the healthcare and banking industries.
Vir-Sec’s security solution is based on two objectives: to provide strong two-factor authentication to virtually eliminate a hacker’s ability to pose as the user, and to insulate the interactions between a user and an application so that it cannot be hijacked and so that no evidence of the user’s session remains on the host computer once the session has ended.
The idea is a surprisingly simple one. In addition to an application having login credentials, it also has a USB device which looks and functions like a physical key. And not only does the key keep unwanted intruders from posing as the user, but also allows no data to be stored on the terminal that is used. This means that after the key is inserted and accepted as valid, it will prompt communication with a server that provides access to a virtual application. The application will require additional login credentials such as usernames, passwords, codes, or other personal information. Almost any customized application can be developed with this technology. Then, when the user is finished accessing their information on the virtual application, the key is removed, and the application and all its data disappear. There is no application residue on the computer to be traced by even the best hackers. It’s like the user was never even there.
This technology has potentially massive consequences. When healthcare industries use this, insurance and medical fraud will decrease. With less risk involved, costs go down for everyone involved. Banks would also be under less risk, allowing everyone greater peace of mind when accessing their financial accounts anywhere without worry about security breaches. Vir-Sec’s security solution could even allow for top-secret email services.
Appmosphere is excited about the technology and what it could mean for the future of data security. Once development begins for mobile devices, Appmosphere is on board to help with application software development.
