Winfrasoft, the developer of the award-winning PINgrid soft-token authentication solution, today announces its membership of the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance, an industry consortium revolutionising online authentication with standards for strong authentication.
“We are excited to welcome our newest associate member Winfrasoft,” said Michael Barrett, FIDO Alliance president. “The FIDO vision of universal strong authentication promises better security, enhanced privacy, more commerce and expansion of services throughout digital industries. Winfrasoft’s addition to our Alliance supports our industry goal to make user authentication easier and safer for all parties.”
CEO of Winfrasoft, Steven Hope states: “Winfrasoft has joined the FIDO Alliance as we share the vision to break the token<->server silo mantra.” Hope adds: “The global demand for our PINgrid solution, from organisations of all sizes and sectors, suggests that the market is beginning to break free from inflexible hard-tokens and unsecure password-based authentication. Through the creation of a standards-based foundation the FIDO Alliance will open up a world of opportunities for vendors and end-user organisations and deliver huge benefits to consumers.”
