TriCipher Wins New Patent for Affirming Remote Users’ Identities

2008-07-17 09:00:00

   Removes Last Business Barriers to Telecommuting and Digital Signatures



    LOS GATOS, Calif., July 17 /EMWPresswire/ -- TriCipher

(http://tricipher.com/), the strong authentication company, won its newest

key patent: the first automated multi-factor authentication tool for remote

users -- eliminating the costly burden of smart cards and tokens.



    This is the 19th patent for TriCipher, whose secure log-in solutions

let companies quickly and securely vet the identity of any would-be user,

anywhere.



    The patent, U.S. number 7,386,720

(http://www.profsandhu.com/sandhu/patents/007386720.pdf), was awarded

because of TriCipher's unique approach to marrying the pervasive username

and password combination into a single, strong and authenticated credential

that absolutely confirms a user's identity -- without a third-party

single-use device. This split key technology divides the credential between

the user's system, an authorized portable device like a USB drive, and

TriCipher's appliance.



    Because it is so simple to use and fast to provision, early customers

indicate that this new approach could accelerate secure adoption of digital

signatures as an everyday business tool.



    "How do we let people work remotely, and log in -- without compromising

our security and IP?" said Kyle Austin, VP of Engineering at TriCipher.

"That's the million-dollar security question. We're answering it with a

solution that costs pennies per user."



    The patent is embedded in ID Tool ToGo(TM)

(http://tricipher.com/product/id_tool_togo.html), which authenticates

remote users. Until now, enterprises that wanted this higher level of

authorized security needed a third element for the security equation. This

typically included smart cards or tokens, which need to be installed and

maintained. ID Tool ToGo eliminates all of those costs.



    TriCipher's flagship offering provides rock-solid identity assurance

for businesses whose employees rely on critical Web-based applications. Its

enterprise solutions, which are used by dozens of financial services and

pharmaceutical companies, are optimized for any industry needing higher

levels of certification to meet regulatory requirements.
