Bharosa Available for Microsoft Intelligent Application Gateway to Enhance Security for Online VPN Solutions

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 7, 2007 -- Bharosa, a global provider of proactive, real-time fraud detection and multifactor authentication security solutions, today announced that its online security software products, Tracker and Authenticator, will be available for Microsoft Intelligent Application Gateway, enabling strong online security which can be layered with Microsoft's offering for secure sockets layer (SSL) virtual private network (VPN) access via the Web.

"We are pleased to be working with Bharosa to provide customers with an option for fraud protection and advanced authentication that enhances simplified identity management," said Mike Schutz, group product manager of Security and Access Products at Microsoft Corp.

Bharosa, a registered member of the Microsoft Partner Program, offers strong security at login by verifying the user's computer and location as well as securing the user name and password. By layering Bharosa's clientless software (Bharosa requires no hardware, software or user downloads) with Microsoft's SSL VPN, which also requires no user downloads, organizations can enable multifactor authentication security for all their corporate applications and portals, which users can access through a single online VPN site.

Bharosa also provides strong fraud detection capabilities against the most advanced fraud threats, including phishing, spyware, and malicious bots. An award-winning, privately held Silicon Valley company, Bharosa has quickly joined the ranks of the industry's largest security providers, and is now securing over 20 million users worldwide.

"Bharosa's technology enhances Microsoft's SSL VPN security by providing strong, multifactor authentication security without the maintenance burdens of tokens, hardware or downloads," said Thomas Varghese, president and CTO for Bharosa.
