2factor® Named to "Security Companies to Watch" List

Real Privacy Management™ (RPM) Provider Recognized by Network World Magazine as a Hot Newcomer in IT Network Security

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - November 13, 2007) - 2factor, a provider of leading-edge security solutions, today announced that Network World magazine has selected the company as one of its 2007 "Security Companies to Watch." The full article is available at

Network World highlighted 2factor's ingenuity in the authentication software market, and celebrated its role as a flourishing innovator in the security industry. The magazine distinguished 2factor's Real Privacy Management™ (RPM) technology for its ability to provide "continuous mutual authentication and encryption during every transmission between client and server."

"Organizations around the world have acknowledged the inherent weaknesses in single-factor security and are searching for viable two-factor security solutions that minimize the risks associated with online threats and attacks," said 2factor CEO David M. Burns. "By honoring 2factor, Network World further validates our unique approach of providing continuous two-factor authentication and encryption that eliminates intra-session hacker attacks and security threats, thereby reducing online fraud."

2factor's Real Privacy Management™ (RPM) software addresses the shortcomings of today's PKI-based security products by providing a solution that continuously generates fresh, short-lived 256-bit secret keys used to both mutually authenticate each party and encrypt/decrypt every data transmission in real time. RPM is ultra-fast, extremely lightweight, easily customizable, and can be quickly deployed inside any software application, device or chip. RPM can function as a complete stand-alone security system or be quickly integrated into existing systems to stop security threats and next-generation hacker attacks. RPM's key generation algorithm is published, and its security strength has been mathematically proven. With its extreme speed (up to 100 times faster than PKI in generating new secret keys) and miniature size (six function calls in 10Kb) RPM brings security beyond desktop Web-based applications to the exploding world of low-latency wireless phones and devices, chips and applications where small code size and computational efficiency are critical.
