Authentest protects Microsoft Applications

Authenware : 16 July, 2009  (New Product)
Biometric keystroke recognition technology provides protection for Microsoft Office applications using Authentest
Authenware has announced the general availability of an effective, consumer-friendly version of Authentest that is certified to protect logon access to domains and applications within the Microsoft Windows XP environment. Authentest is a second-factor authentication system that detects if a login is being attempted by the rightful user based upon the particular 'way' that person types, rather than 'what' the person types.


'The physical world has been transplanted into cyberspace,' said Tom Helou, president of Authenware. 'Large filing cabinets have been replaced with a small icon on our desktops and face-to-face conversations are often exchanged for a series of Tweets, chats, and wall posts. The innovations of companies such as Microsoft have transformed the way humans interact and businesses operate. And while these advancements have improved our lives in many ways, they have also opened a Pandora's Box in terms of security issues. Companies look to us to provide them with an additional layer of protection for their clients and consumers who interact with Microsoft systems.'

With more than ninety percent of Authenware's customers using Microsoft XP as their operating system of choice, it was important to address their needs immediately by enhancing Authentest to close their security gaps. Authentest's effectiveness on Microsoft platforms is due to the biometric software's implementation of a three-tiered architecture: presentation, business logic, and server data protection - all configured to address the needs of Windows users. Employing a highly sophisticated algorithm as the foundation, Authentest monitors a series of user logins to develop a unique personal biometric pattern for the user.

Specifically, the Authentest software offers simple end-user registration, effective troubleshooting, and efficient training requirements as well as successful elimination of all known man-in-the-middle hacking attempts. With a menu of options to configure the right features for each application, Authentest allows administrators to determine the level of security at any access point. Further, the software is implemented on a black-box server stored behind the inner firewall, providing SOA Web services for training, authentication and administration of biometric patterns, as well as SQL access to log data.
