2013 Security Resolutions from SurePassID

Happy New Year! 2013 isn’t just a new year, it’s a new opportunity to become more secure. What security resolutions are you making? In addition to your list, SurePassID would like to suggest a few of our own:

  • Embrace the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) phenomenon. Whether it’s a user’s personal smart phone, tablet, or laptop, SurePassID makes it easy to lock down your apps and control user access – without sacrificing the two-factor authentication (2FA) security required for compliance.
  • Start using Single Sign-On – securely. What’s worse than multiplying apps, usernames and passwords, and URLs or network locations to remember? A single static password which grants access to all of a user’s apps. But no organization needs to live with that critical vulnerability. SurePassID’s Secure SSO offering is the fastest, most cost-effective path to safe SSOing. Try it free for 30 days and experience the secure convenience for yourself.
  • Go EMV with the Chip Guard Card. EMV stands for Europay MasterCard VISA, but it may be better known as “chip and PIN.” It’s a more secure payment card that’s coming to North America. Both Canada and Mexico are mandating EMV cards, and many major banks in the U.S. are preparing to deploy them. EMV cards can be made even more secure by SmartDisplayer’s Chip Guard Card, which requires users to enter a unique One Time Password (OTP) in order to activate the payment chip for us. Best of all, this card-level security requires no back-end changes to banks’ transaction processing system.
