LADERA RANCH, Calif., April 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Access Smart, provider of Power LogOn® – an enterprise multi-factor authentication solution with password management – announces the combined product launch with Secure Channels Inc., provider of innovative ParaDoxBox™ – a data-at-rest and in-motion encryption solution. The combination of Power LogOn and ParaDoxBox (PDB) creates a circle of trust not found in other enterprise data cybersecurity systems.
The two companies integrated their products to help reduce the hacking epidemic by approaching cybersecurity in a more holistic manner: Secure Access Authentication with patented Super-Encipherment Data Encryption capabilities. We are taking a customer-centric approach, by designing a solution that fits the clients’ needs, budget, and particular environment for a fast and easy deployment.
Power LogOn first authenticates the user into their computer during Windows boot-up and then into the company’s network. Then, Power LogOn auto-starts the PDB program and auto-fills the PDB secure logon password. Next, PDB automatically decrypts the data drives using very strong symmetric keys. If the user tries to copy files or attach files to an email, they cannot be read without also having the Power LogOn smartcard.
“Our technology partners are the cornerstones of cybersecurity, and data encryption is a core function. We’re thrilled to offer a convenient and secure means to access company sensitive data,” said Dovell Bonnett, Founder & CEO, at Access Smart. “Cybersecurity starts at login whether it be on the computer, website, server, cloud or application. With ParaDoxBox, when the card is presented and user authenticated, sensitive files become available. When the card is removed, the files are re-encrypted and unreadable.”
Both Power LogOn and ParaDoxBox are compliant to the latest FIPS 140-2 security specifications and operating systems, and the solution is easily installed. The Power LogOn smartcards can be contact or contactless and can be added to either a new or post-issued ID card. Secure Channels selected Power LogOn because the company needed a proven authentication tool that was flexible and could act as the first line of defense against security intrusions.
“This partnership with Access Smart enables us to present a combined solution that is unparalleled in the marketplace,” said Richard Blech, Chief Executive Officer of Secure Channels Inc. “We are providing the ‘vault’ for the confidentiality and integrity of information. Access Smart provides the authorization including access controls for physical environments or devices in a package that does not forfeit security for convenience. Access Smart solutions are powerful and flexible – we simply used their API to merge a solution that can greatly reduce the impact of cybersecurity problems.”
ParaDoxBox allows users to encrypt storage network spaces, protect data saved in public file share services, and safeguard endpoints by developing encrypted virtual containers or entire drives. It offers clients a suite of both FIPS 140-2 compliant algorithms (AES-256, 3DES) and additional algorithms (Serpent, Twofish) to meet their desired level of security.
