CARLSBAD, CA - June 25, 2008 - AP Technology announced today the availability of a state-of-the-art tri-level authentication solution. The solution called Keystone Authentication provides three security components for a multi-layered approach to front-end authentication and maximum protection against unauthorized user entry. Customers benefit by incorporating single-, dual- or tri-levels of interoperable security to match user security requirements for data applications.
"Due to the increase in unauthorized security access, a stronger industry solution was needed to prevent users from gaining improper access to valuable data, accounts, and information," said Richard Love, CEO of AP Technology. "Our customers in the financial services arena require the strongest security solutions available to insure client information and data are never compromised. They also need multiple layers of protection and a solution that is convenient to use." AP Technology's tri-level authentication solution is currently meeting the secure access demands for online banking applications, such as bank official check printing, remote check printing, and positive pay services.
Keystone Authentication is a one-time password architecture that offers two options for password-generation. Option one is an image-based CodeSheet that provides tri-level access security by enabling standard password user authentication, one-time password user authentication, and anti-phishing protection via a Keystone Identifier Image that is unique to the user's CodeSheet. Option two is a Visual Signing Technology that combines standard password security with one-time password authentication and a transaction verification component. System users can conveniently access Keystone Authentication password-generators via a desktop application, their cell phone, or other mobile devices.
This unique solution reclaims customer trust in the online environment by offering extensible authentication for website, email, ATM/Card, and transaction channels. The Keystone authentication method can be applied on a user-by-user basis, and the technology can be layered with existing single sign-on authentication. Additional security is possible with optional PIN protected hardware (USB or Camera Phone) devices. Financial services and other sectors, from healthcare to insurance, can significantly improve their application security by integrating the Keystone tri-level user authentication solution.
"AP Technology continues to develop industry-leading security solutions that insure that sensitive data remains secure and free from unauthorized access, phishing attempts, man in the middle attacks and more," said Richard Love. "We help protect our customers from security breaches that cause irreversible damage in terms of an institution's reputation and bottom line."
