In the current online environment, individuals are asked to maintain dozens of different usernames and passwords (some websites include exotic types of two-factor authentications), one for each website with which they interact. The complexity of this approach is a burden to individuals, and it encourages behavior such as the reuse of passwords that makes online fraud and identity theft easier.
Besides password reuse, Internet users are at risk of being victimized by password related security threats such as keylogging, phishing, and man-in-the-middle attack. If a criminal can commandeer your browser or your endpoint, entering password or PIN into your browser unlocks your accounts and allows criminals to steal from them. What makes defense difficult is that the compromise is likely to be at the user's endpoint. If we are able to mitigate threats by reinventing the password, making online transactions more trustworthy and better protecting privacy, we will prevent costly crime; we will give businesses and consumers new confidence.
Passwords are no longer inconvenient and insecure. Ohanae® Connect reduces the need for consumers to use and remember multiple passwords. Once your Ohanae® Connect account is activated; users may sign in and register with any sites.
Layered Protection, characterized by the use of different controls at the endpoint of an authentication process, allows for a weakness in one control to be generally compensated for by the strength of a different control.
Layered Protection can substantially strengthen the overall security of Internet-based services and be effective in protecting sensitive customer information, preventing identity theft, and reducing account takeovers and the resulting financial losses.
