SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for auction a security passcode software portfolio from Pinoptic Limited, which includes assets using a sequence of symbols or images for authentication. This auction lot will be included in the 17th ICAP Ocean Tomo IP Auction on November 29, 2012, at The Ritz Carlton in San Francisco, California.
"We are excited to be offering this improved security software to our global base of buyers. This technology could be an exclusive differentiator as it provides high-level security technology with quick, user-friendly access," says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.
Key Characteristics & Benefits
Escalating IT security threats and strengthening regulatory requirements are driving the adoption of multi-factor authentication to unprecedented levels. The technology available provides high-level passcode security, which prevents security breaches through casual observation or by key loggers, and is safer over open networks by sending a different 4-digit number every time. Therefore, one symbol-based code could cover all of an individual's existing PIN requirements – debit/credit cards, internet/cloud security, access control, corporate IT and mobile verification. Plus, as a user's passcode is in the form of personalized images that are easier to recall, this invention avoids the need to remember different numerical codes. This IP package is relevant for companies seeking new and improved methods of identification and verification to protect their products and services, and ultimately, their consumers.
Further, new and expanded multi-factor implementations are leveraging phone-based authentication instead of the often misplaced security tokens, which had previously dominated the multi-factor market. According to Goode Intelligence, an information security research and analysis firm, phone-based authentication will comprise 61% of the multi-factor authentication market by the year 2014. This portfolio provides a significant enhancement to mobile device authentication security and can be the easy-to-set-up-and-use codes for multi-factor implementation, i.e., what you know (personalized symbols code), what you have (mobile device), and where you are (location-based via mobile) or alternatives.
