StrikeForce Receives Notice of Allowance From United States Patent Office That Their Keystroke Encryption Technology Is Approved for Issuance of a Second Patent

Second Patent Increases Scope of Keystroke Encryption Coverage for PC's, MAC's, Mobile Devices, Tablets and Mobile Applications

EDISON, NJ--(Marketwired - Mar 25, 2014) - StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: SFORD), a company that specializes in Cyber Security solutions for the prevention of Data Breaches and Cyber Theft, announced today that it has received an official Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent Office stating that a second patent application titled "Methods and apparatus for securing keystrokes from being intercepted between the keyboard and a browser" has been approved for issuance.

"We are extremely excited about receiving this Notice of Allowance for our Keystroke Encryption technology," says Mark L. Kay, CEO of StrikeForce, "it has game changing implications for our Company and the industry. This expands on our original patent and includes: all computers, smart phones, tablets, and all the keystrokes you enter. Our patented Keystroke Encryption technology proactively encrypts each and every keystroke typed on a keyboard. All security experts agree that the use of encryption is the best way to protect data on your mobile device," continues Kay. "Until we developed our Keystroke Encryption Technology for mobile devices, there wasn't any way to encrypt data in motion at the point of origin, when typed on a mobile device keyboard."

"Additionally, as announced two weeks ago on March 11th, StrikeForce has received an official Notice of Allowance from the US Patent and Trademark Office that we have been approved for Issuance of our third patent for Out-of-Band Authentication," says Kay. "Our patent portfolio continues to increase. After these two Notices become patents, StrikeForce will then own five patents in our portfolio, and there will still be three more pending. Owning the patents for Keystroke Encryption and Out-of-Band Authentication positions us on the forefront of what is hot in security and regulatory requirements today, as seen through our new contracts and increasing pipeline. As we learned at the recent RSA Security Show, these are the types of product purchases now being included in security budgets. Our increasing patent portfolio also improves our value as we continue to protect our intellectual property assets."

The timing of this Notice of Allowance coincides perfectly with StrikeForce's recently announced two new mobile products (MobileTrust® and GuardedID® Mobile SDK). Both products already include our patented keystroke encryption technology and should be available within the next thirty to sixty days. Individuals and Corporations will now for the first time, be able to protect themselves with our MobileTrust application, while mobile application developers will be able to build our one-of-a-kind Keystroke Encryption technology directly into their mobile applications.

"Keystroke Encryption is an extremely critical security technology, which plays a major role in preventing the most widespread malware from stealing confidential data from mobile devices," says Kay.
