Infosec Island™, the new community for IT and information security professionals, today announced that its new enhanced authentication service based on the SyferLock™ GridGuard™ solution, is now live.

Deploying this technology provides Infosec Island members with the option to login with a very high level of security for confidential business, personal or security-related communications. SyferLock’s GridOne authentication is available on Infosec Island to all registered members, and membership is free.

The new SyferLock service on Infosec Island offers the following functionality to Infosec Island members:

  • Allows you to use your existing password
  • Makes your password a device-less one time password
  • Always on security – from any machine, anywhere
  • Complete self service escalating security features to combat key-logging, sniffing, phishing, even continuous screen capture
  • Self-service 2 factor authentication capabilities
  • Self-service customized UI and languages
  • Detailed account monitoring and analysis

The SyferLock GridGuard system is an enhanced authentication methodology and system that’s completely deviceless for the generation of one time passwords, providing an extremely cost effective security solution. This allows users to have a simple, more secure way to access information leveraging their existing passwords. In addition, the GridGuard solution is completely zero footprint. There’s no need to download or install any additional software. This allows the members to receive the same level of security from any machine they use to login to Infosec Island.

SyferLock also is offering the Grand Prize in Infosec Island’s Q1 Infosec Port of Call Membership Drive Drawing. The prize is a free core server license, including maintenance, of the Grid Data Security Enhanced Authentication Solution, with a value of up to $10,000. (The winning member gets a single core server license for their organization. User licenses remain at regular price.) In addition, registered members of Infosec Island are eligible for an additional 10 percent off year one costs, including 10 percent off any additional core or user licenses purchased.

GridGuard authentication will remain a permanent demonstration and premium level of security available free to all Island members. Infosec Island members are eligible for special incentives and those interested in site licensing options for their organizations are encouraged to contact SyferLock directly for more information at http://www.syferlock.com.

Anthony M. Freed GridGuard is pretty cool - I had someone watch me log in three times in a row - with full view of my screen and my keyboard - and they still could not figure out my password!

Ah progress!
Fred Williams Great information. Mike, thanks for the explanation on why we should dig this technology. I'm going to try it today.
