Green Armor Solutions Announces Invisible Authentication Upgrade (IAU) Technology

Seamlessly & Invisibly Converts Authentication from Challenge Questions to Strong Multi-Factor


February 14, 2011 - Hackensack, NJ - Green Armor Solutions, a leading provider of information security software, announced the availability of its Invisible Authentication Upgrade (IAU) technology which allows organizations currently using challenge questions for authentication to transition to strong, multi-factor authentication without requiring users to re-register or be re-trained.


Many organizations that currently rely on challenge questions for authentication are expected to transition to multi-factor authentication over the next few years. Challenge questions have proven problematic from both security and usability perspectives, attracting the attention of both hackers and regulators. Answers are often easily guessable, found in Google searches or on FaceBook, or available in public records. Furthermore, training users to answer questions posed by websites prior to the sites’ authenticating themselves to the users may increase – rather than decrease -- the risk of identity theft.


Green Armor's strong authentication technology eliminates the “guessing game” by providing powerful multi-factor security without the typical usability sacrifices common across the industry. It also supports a large number of mobile devices without the need to install any software on the devices.


"We are happy to announce that organizations can now replace their challenge-question based authentication with stronger multi-factor authentication without having to endure the pain often associated with such an upgrade," said Joseph Steinberg, C.E.O. of Green Armor Solutions. "Green Armor's unparalleled ease of use, coupled with its leading-edge security and support for mobile devices, allows organizations to benefit from strong security without sacrificing usability.”
