Strengthening Web Authentication, Without Overcorrecting

BEDFORD, NH–(Marketwired – Jun 3, 2014)

Today, PistolStar, Inc. announced immediate availability of PortalGuard’s newest solution, PassiveKey. PortalGuard’s PassiveKey is a customer driven response to deliver the latest in innovative identity solutions. PassiveKey transparently enables two factor authentication while allowing the user to login with the familiar username/password approach. This simultaneously strengthens authentication and eliminates the need for end-user training.

 

“Many think the correlation between strong security and identity logins is an unavoidable inconvenience to the end user. With PassiveKey, you can strengthen identity logins without ever impacting the end user,” says Thomas Hoey, founder and CEO of PistolStar, Inc. “Increasing security can be accomplished with many different two factor authentication methods, but most stifle usability, negatively impacting the end user,” Hoey says. “Answering the need for both security and usability, PassiveKey cuts through all the hassle of second factors without ever compromising strong identity security.”

With PassiveKey enrolled on a user’s device, the user logs into the protected account like they normally would with their password while PassiveKey transparently generates and transmits a one-time token which is validated by the PortalGuard server based on a shared secret between the two. “It is clear that it is no longer enough to protect private information with just a password,” Hoey continues. “Authenticating the user today must be more than just a user’s password, but the login process must be as easy as using just a password.” Revolutionizing logins, PassiveKey is restoring the balance between security and usability.
