You can finally retire username/password for any Web or Mobile application. You can also apply a security layer for Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
PRLog - Nov. 2, 2014 - HAIFA, Israel -- Many people ask - why do we still use passwords ? Tim Bray of Time.com gave the following answer:
"They certainly don't keep us safe from hackers—but none of the alternatives out there are free from their own host of problems yet either.
Why do we still have passwords? Everyone hates them. They’re hard to keep track of and hard to type in, especially on your mobile device. And they just don’t work, judging by the all-too-frequent news of bad guys busting into this site or that app.
Two reasons they haven’t gone away: First, it’s easy for programmers to deploy a standard username/password setup. They more or less just push a button in their app-building toolkit. Second, the alternatives…well, they’re not quite ready for prime time".
Sentrycs Mobile is the innovative alternative to username/password.
Sentrycs Mobile combines web usability with voice security to identify the user and protect critical transaction data. Sentrycs Mobile brings to the market the following features:
1. Delivered as Software-as-a-Service, without the need for dedicated hardware.
2. Applicable via API to any Web or Mobile application, as well as Internet-of-Things.
3. Applicable to any endpoint device: PCs, laptops, tablets, smartphones or any other network-connected device.
4. Secure, even under Internet attack.
5. Takes no more user's time than entering long username and long password.
6. Does not require user's training: everyone knows how to speak over the phone.
Use case example- online banking third-party money transfers:
Man-in-the-browser is a proxy Trojan horse that infects a web browser by taking advantage of vulnerabilities in browser security to modify web pages, modify transaction content or insert additional transactions, all in a completely covert fashion invisible to both the user and host web application.
The majority of financial service professionals in a survey considered Man-in-the-browser to be the greatest threat to online banking. No strong authentication alternative exists today.
Sentrycs Mobile resolves the problem as following: the critical data is the money transfer recipient identification, i.e. his/her bank account number.This data is spoken by the person, authorising transaction, and his voiceprint is authenticated at the same time.Thus Sentrycs Mobile ensures that this critical data cannot be modified by fraudsters.
Sentrycs Mobile combines Identity-Management-as-a-Service with Transaction-Integrity-Assurance (patent pending).
In 2013, Sentrycs Mobile was recognized in the category of security at NSN Israel Innovation Competition for the potential value for the future mobile broadband industry.
