Allpoint to sell GrIDsure into the public sector

Gridsure : 07 January, 2010  (Company News)
GrIDsure has entered a strategic partnership with Allpoint Security to market secure login technology based on pattern recognition into the public sector
GrIDsure has formed a strategic partnership with Allpoint Security to resell GrIDsure technology to the public sector. GrIDsure is also announcing that it has received the CESG Claims Tested Mark (CCTM) certification for its Enterprise Login product sold by Allpoint, which means that UK public sector organisations, including local authorities, NHS, education, criminal justice, police, Central Government and MoD, will now be able to recognise GrIDsure's pattern-based authentication system when looking to improve the security of their existing computer login methods.

Ken Douglas, Director, Allpoint Security, commented: "Over the last seven years Allpoint Security has delivered information assurance projects to an impressive list of clients operating in key sectors including European, central and local government, finance, police, pharmaceuticals and defence. GrIDsure's Enterprise Login is an excellent addition to our product portfolio as it is much easier for the end user, offers increased security, greater flexibility and significantly reduces the cost and administration of password resets than competing solutions."

Stephen Howes, CEO and CTO, GrIDsure commented: "Allpoint is a great fit for GrIDsure and the company's extensive experience will be invaluable in enabling us to reach key markets such as local Government. We are very excited about the opportunities this partnership will bring and coupling this with our CCTM accreditation for Enterprise puts us on a really firm footing to reach out to this important market.

"Public sector organisations are now working to meet more stringent security standards, coupled with budget cuts and disparate authentication techniques, we are confident that GrIDsure Enterprise will be seen as a ray of light for many IT, security, compliance and risk managers across the UK. We believe that GrIDsure is a win-win for both system administrators and end users as it is simple to use and dramatically cuts down the number of password changes and re-sets required. On-domain authentication is now available for the first time and is easily deployable across multiple channels, such as laptops and mobile phones for both LAN and remote access.",

The award of this certification supports the adoption of GrIDsure Enterprise (Version 3.3.30.14) by public sector agencies in complying with the Government's Code of Connection (CoCo 4.1), the code that regulates security for all organisations connecting to the Government Secure Extranet (GCSx). In addition, GrIDsure represents a user-friendly and cost effective technology that is much more secure than a traditional password and is ideal for organisations looking for a tokenless two-factor authentication solution for remote access and home working employees.

GrIDsure's innovative solution is based on a groundbreaking yet simple concept that allows users to login to their PC by remembering a sequential pattern on a grid. Each time the user logs in they are presented with a challenge grid containing randomly generated numbers or characters, and they authenticate themselves by entering a one-time passcode created from the numbers or characters that correspond to their personal identification pattern (PIP). GrIDsure Enterprise is easily adopted by business users and consumers alike because it has been proven that patterns are easier to remember than passwords; it is highly secure as there are numerous pattern permutations that are almost impossible to shoulder surf, and it is very cost effective and scalable as it requires no additional hardware or software.
