EDISON, NJ--(Marketwire - Jan 8, 2013) - StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: SFOR) announce the release of GuardedID® Anti-Keylogging Keystroke Encryption software for the Microsoft Windows 8 Operating System. GuardedID is the single most important security program that consumers and corporations need to protect themselves. It overcomes the inadequacies of anti-virus software by encrypting each and every keystroke in real-time, therefore protecting your computer, even if you are infected with keylogging malware.
"The biggest misconception that people have about anti-virus software is that they think it actually protects them from every type of threat, unfortunately, that's just not true," says Mark L. Kay, CEO of StrikeForce Technologies. "Test results from industry leaders have shown that anti-virus software is only about 25% effective in stopping threats; but you won't hear that from the anti-virus vendors."
Successful keylogging attacks are making the news on a daily basis, on Oct. 26th, 2012 South Carolina's Governor Nikki Hale announced that the IRS had been hacked, the culprit was a keylogger. "Keyloggers are the most efficient and effective way to steal personal and corporate information," adds Kay. "In the recent Verizon 2012 Data Breach Investigations Report, Verizon noted that 'When malware was used to exfiltrate data, 98% of the time it was paired with keylogging functionality.' Cybercriminals use keyloggers and ransomware to steal identities, access confidential corporate information and perpetrate financial fraud."
GuardedID's Keystroke Encryption Software can help put an end to data security breaches. If every computer had keystroke encryption, keyloggers, used in part for virtually every major breach in the last decade, would be rendered useless.
StrikeForce Technologies (OTCBB: SFOR) is the creator and key patent holder for two factor out-of-band authentication as well as an anti-keylogging keystroke encryption technology (patent pending). The company's GuardedID® anti-keylogging keystroke encryption technology prevents keylogger malware from stealing personal, business, financial information and passwords. Their software protects over six million individuals and businesses in over 100 countries from identity theft and data breaches. StrikeForce's ProtectID out-of-band authentication technology is the only platform to offer eight different out-of-band methods, including phone, voice, instant messaging, hard tokens, and desktop/mobile tokens. ProtectID can be installed and managed 100% on premise, or, via StrikeForce's hosted service offering.
