Remote Data Backups & A & C Direct IT Consulting Partner to Protect Clients’ Data

A & C Direct IT Consulting Owner James Readnower today announced it has partnered with Remote Data Backups, Inc. to provide its customers with the the most cost effective, convenient and secure way to automatically back up their data offsite.

“This is a mission-critical service every business needs,” Readnower said. “We are excited to be able to integrate Remote Data Backups into our core offerings. They have an impressive list of clients who praise their reliability — the most important aspect in data protection — and ease of use.”

One in 4 PC users suffer from data loss each year, according to a Gartner Group study. Seven of 10 small firms experiencing a major data loss go out of business within a year (DTI/PriceWaterhouse Coopers).

“We know how frequent and damaging data loss can be, and this is the best way to prevent it,” Readnower added. “Backups need to be automatic, secure and offsite. With RDB, you can rest assured your data is safe.”

Clients are encouraged to take a free 30-day trial at http://ancdirect.databu.com. Setup is simple and takes just a few minutes.

After the initial backup, nightly automatic backups compress and securely transfer only new files and block-level changes, for fast, efficient backups with minimal bandwidth usage and transfer time. With one click, you can also run backups on-demand any time, on Windows exit, or on network connection (great for laptops) backups.

Users can retrieve files via the desktop agent or securely online through the Remote File Access feature. Easy System Restore provides a full system backup to protect the operating system, program files and registry settings.

In addition, Horizon will intend to offer new technologies and applications about “Ubiquitous” in sequence .From all over the world, Horizon will suggest only new technologies to do excess of existing technology. In addition, all these technologies consigns system test to “the technically authoritative third person organization” strictly.

This program is gross size 1.43 kbytes, and the changing quantity is really a very small program of 292 bytes.

The masking system is in particular security software of a totally new type to overturn the conventional common sense that there is not in U.S.A., EU, Japan either. It has been never exceeded so far by any hackers.

Expansion of company’s SecureAuth authentication products fuels growth

MultiFactor Corporation, an innovator in 2-way 2-factor authentication, Web application security and SSL VPN Authentication solutions, announces record fourth quarter growth of its SecureAuth authentication products, despite the slumping global economy.

Thomas Stewart, CFO of MultiFactor Corporation stated, “Our recently completed Q4 ‘08 sales revenues maintained 300 percent quarter over quarter growth for the third consecutive quarter as enterprises and Web operators are increasingly adopting SecureAuth as a superior authentication method for SSL VPN, IPsec VPN, and secure Web applications. We are very happy with our ‘08 results and our projections for 2009 are strong.”

A contributing factor to SecureAuth’s continued market growth was the addition in the third and fourth quarter of native integration into Juniper SSL VPN products, CA’s SiteMinder and the IBM Tivoli Security Products. This complements very strong adoption for SecureAuth with Cisco ASA SSL VPNs, Microsoft Outlook Web Access, Microsoft SharePoint Server and all .NET applications. New customers were drawn to the automated simplicity of a truly strong dual factor authentication scheme. SecureAuth’s low acquisition cost and minimal implementation burden provided added incentive to move forward.

“Security concerns have not subsided due to the economic downturn,” said Craig Lund, CEO of MultiFactor Corporation. “On the contrary, threats are increasing and rendering legacy authentication methods practically obsolete. SecureAuth’s novel technology allows companies to have the strongest authentication without the large capital investment.”

“In these times, we are fortunate to be operating in the relatively resilient sector of IT security,” added Lund. “However, we are even more fortunate to have a product with a price/performance value far superior to any competitive or substitutive technology.”

MultiFactor Corp. announces the integration of its flagship product, SecureAuth(r) and Data Guard Systems’ newest product, AlertBoot

MultiFactor Corporation, an innovator in 2 factor authentication, Web application security and SSL VPN Authentication solutions, today announced the integration of its flagship product, SecureAuth® and Data Guard Systems’ newest product, AlertBoot.

AlertBoot transforms enterprise-level full disk encryption and data security into a fully-managed and centralized Web-based service. It promises customers the same benefits as a traditional full disk encryption and data security solution, but on a platform that is scalable to the needs of an organization and requires far less investment in IT infrastructure, support, and training.

“A Web-based platform and an emphasis on a user-friendly customer experience were common ground for AlertBoot and SecureAuth,” said Timothy Maliyil, Data Guard’s Systems’ CEO. “And it didn’t take long to realize that SecureAuth could integrate X509 certificate technology authentication in a way that wouldn’t affect delivery of AlertBoot’s basic product performance while maintaining the integrity of key differentiators of speed and convenience.”

SecureAuth revolutionized X509 certificate technology authentication into a tokenless, non-phishable, two-way authentication solution that can be effortlessly deployed over the Web and requires virtually no training or infrastructure modifications to implement and manage. The solution proved to be a perfect match for the type of multi-factor authentication system AlertBoot needed for AlertBoot Central, its administrative console.

“This level of security becomes especially critical, considering the new type of DNS phishing attacks Hackers have been mounting,” said Garret Grajek, COO of MultiFactor Corporation. “These attacks fool a DNS server—which directs alphabetical URL requests to the corresponding numerical IP address of a website—into directing the user unknowingly to a hacker-created site where they capture your log-in information. However, when a hacker attempts to replay your log-in in AlertBoot, the absence of a certificate prevents them from gaining access.”

SecureAuth works by authenticating both the user and the client for each session via a non-exportable cryptographic credential. When an authorized user logs into AlertBoot Central for the first time, they’re immediately redirected to the SecureAuth registration system, which emails them a PIN. Once they enter the PIN, the system installs the certificate on their computer. From that point on, whenever the user logs into the AlertBoot management console, they’re instantly authorized.

The end result is that the user and customer both enjoy the full security benefits of X509 certificate technology authentication, but without the additional infrastructure that would have otherwise been required.

“By offering direct integration of SecureAuth into CA SiteMinder, we extend the SecureAuth security and benefits to CA’s SiteMinder customers, while keeping the total costs down to a few dollars per user, per year,” said Craig Lund, CEO of MultiFactor Corporation. “These days real security at the lowest possible cost is the top customer priority.”

The benefits of the integration include ease of use of a standard username and password but with strength of full X.509 authentication, all in a frictionless user environment.

The easy to implement integration leverages SecureAuth for a tokenless, non-phishable authentication scheme which can be used to protect both new and existing web resources. In today’s age of increased security, this integration ensures that access is restricted to authorized users and also helps to protect your company brand and customer retention,” said Todd Clayton, President and CEO of CoreBlox, the leading CA SiteMinder integration company.

In addition to user friendly username/password validation, SecureAuth features a unique, variable certificate expiration option that gives the enterprise additional flexibility in setting their authentication parameters.
