Winfrasoft to Help Organisations Move from Passwords and Hard Token Authentication at the Security IT Summit 2015

Winfrasoft today announced that at the Security IT Summit 2015 it will be demonstrating how organisations can move away from password-based security with the award-winning PINgrid, PINpass and PINphrase. The one-day event takes place on 7th July at the Hilton London, Wembley.

At the Security IT Summit, Winfrasoft (an OATH and FIDO Alliance Member) will provide security professionals working in B2B and B2C organisations with a fresh alternative to their current authentication and transaction verification methods. Delegates will learn how they can remove the reliance on password-based authentication and pressure on the helpdesk for resets, eliminate procurement costs and administration surrounding card readers and keyring tokens, and innovate without the need to implement expensive biometrics.
- PINgrid is an award-winning and patented multi-factor authentication and transaction signing solution that is being used in the public and private sector today to transform any mobile device into a soft-token, via a simple offline app, replacing passwords with a memorable pattern that automatically generates an OTP.

 - PINpass turns any mobile device into a token by sending a six to eight digit OTP to it via SMS or email. By combining it with a PIN, or an existing Active Directory password, PINpass creates a strong 2FA solution.

- PINphrase uses Random Character Authentication.

PINgrid, PINphrase and PINpass all support implementation in 1.5 and 2FA environments.

Head of Sales at Winfrasoft, Fred Astfeldt comments: “Recently we have seen a reaction from retail banks as they start to offer customers a choice in how they authenticate themselves online, giving the option to continue with card-reader or keyring token, or to login using their memorable information. In PINphrase, Winfrasoft is the only authentication speciality with an off-the-shelf product that enables any organisation to implement this form of authentication without the need to develop it in-house.”

Astfeldt adds: “Our solutions have been rigorously tested in public and private sector organisations and have been proven to deliver strong, robust and reliable authentication. However, they have also been demonstrated to have a major impact on improving the end-user experience.”

In addition to PINgrid, PINphrase and PINpass, Winfrasoft will also be demonstrating its Enterprise Desktop Logon and Remote Desktop Agent for organisations using Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Services, Citrix and VMware. These solutions enhance secure access to the corporate network, applications and data by augmenting the username and password login with either 1.5 or 2FA.
