We evaluated several keystroke dynamics solutions before selecting AuthenWare. The software helps us affordably protect against unauthorized access and stop password sharing without impacting our users.
Miami, FL (PRWEB) January 18, 2011
AuthenWare®, a leading cybersecurity software provider, today announced a new contract with the Wasatch Front Regional Multiple Listing Service (WFRMLS), operator of the top-rated Utahrealestate.com website. The agreement, which includes licenses for up to 11,000 REALTOR® users, is designed to help authenticate and protect the identity of members accessing property information on the Utahrealestate.com Multiple Listing Service, as well as limit invalid password sharing. The AuthenWare technology incorporates keystroke dynamics, a form of behavioral biometrics, to recognize valid users and to stop identity theft, web fraud and other system intrusions.
“We evaluated several keystroke dynamics solutions before selecting AuthenWare,” said Rebecca Jensen, CEO and President, of Wasatch Front Regional Multiple Listing Service. “The software helps us affordably protect against unauthorized access and stop password sharing without impacting our users.”
Under the agreement, the Wasatch Front Regional Multiple Listing Service will integrate AuthenWare’s flagship authentication technology with its Utahrealestate.com website, protecting user id and password access to its multiple listing service real estate database. AuthenWare’s zero-footprint approach towards user validation and authentication incorporates a series of biometric security algorithms that record and measure how a person uniquely types their credentials. The multi-dimensional product combines the user’s typing information with other behavioral and environmental heuristics to ensure that rightful users are granted access to the system, while prohibiting the sharing of credentials by users of the system. AuthenWare also ensures that if stolen, credentials are rendered completely useless.
“We are proud that WFRMLS selected AuthenWare as the technology to help protect its MLS members and real estate data,” said Tom Helou, President and COO of AuthenWare. “The additional layer of identity protection and authentication that AuthenWare delivers will ensure that only rightful owners of credentials can access the system and provide a complete audit trail for regulatory compliance purposes.”
