Shelton, CT -- May 18, 2011-- SyferLock Technology Corporation (www.SyferLock.com) is pleased to announce the release of its patented enhanced authentication system and methodology to the OpenID platform. The authentication system allows users the ability to login to their OpenID enabled accounts with higher security, device-less, zero footprint One Time Passwords utilizing one of the, if not the most secure knowledge based authentication systems currently available. SyferLock's MySyferLock™ product delivers a huge increase in security and protection over the predominantly used static passwords, which are extremely vulnerable to many forms of attack. MySyferLock™ creates a more secure access gateway to the cloud and OpenID.
SyferLock's MySyferLock™ system is an OpenID technology where the user still remembers and leverages their existing static password, but when the OpenID user registers usingMySyferLock™, the user creates a transparent multi-token authentication scheme that has the user input and transmit their password as a true one time password throughMySyferLock™'s patented security grid user interface. Key to MySyferLock™ users is that they now have the option for more secure cloud access - universal access using deviceless, zero footprint one time passwords to login to their favorite OpenID enabled web sites and portals versus using an easily compromised static password.
