Lavasoft Adds GuardedID's Keystroke Encryption Software to Their Tax Season Protection Bundle

Cybercrime Is Skyrocketing; Keystroke Encryption Is Essential When Filling-Out Personal and Corporate Tax Documents

EDISON, NJ--(Marketwire - March 18, 2010) -  StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: SFOR), a company that specializes in the prevention of Identity Theft, announced today that Lavasoft, "the original anti-spyware company," with over 400 million downloads worldwide of its flagship Ad-Aware software, has partnered with StrikeForce to promote its GuardedID® keystroke encryption software as part of a world-wide tax-season protection campaign.

"With tax-season upon us, we are very concerned about the millions of individuals and tax preparers that are unknowingly in the cross-hairs of the cyber-criminals," says Jason King, CEO of Lavasoft. "They are relentless with one goal in mind: trick the user into downloading their keystroke logging malware, where they steal every keystroke you type and send them to their computers without you ever knowing the thieves got your personal information."

Cyber-criminals have discovered that the keystroke logger is the perfect tool for stealing usernames, passwords, credit card #'s, online banking information, and all personal / corporate information typed onto tax forms.

"Keystroke loggers are both dangerous and stealthy," says Mark L. Kay, CEO StrikeForce. "They are designed to avoid detection and can be easily hidden inside of email attachments, documents, .PDFs, & mp3 files. Social Networking websites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, MySpace & Google are common websites that cyber-thieves are now using to trick unsuspecting users to download their keylogging spyware."

"What makes GuardedID so powerful is that it encrypts each and every keystroke that you type in real-time, making those keystrokes invisible to keyloggers that have been secretly hidden on your computer," says Mark Kay.
