StrikeForce Technologies Inc.'s GuardedID Keystroke Encryption Patent Granted

GuardedID encrypts every keystroke typed on a keyboard

Edison, NJ (August 28th, 2013) – StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. (SFOR.OB), a company that specializes in Cyber Security for the prevention of Data Breaches, announced today that it has received an official Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent Office stating that their patent application "Methods and apparatus for securing keystrokes from being intercepted between the keyboard and a browser" has been allowed for issuance and a patent.

"We are extremely excited about getting the patent for our GuardedID® Anti-Keylogging Keystroke Encryption technology," says Mark L. Kay, CEO of StrikeForce. "GuardedID is in a league of its own. It proactively encrypts each and every keystroke typed on a keyboard. One thing that all security experts can agree on is that the use of encryption is the best way to protect your data," says Kay, "and until GuardedID, there wasn't any way to encrypt data at the point of origin, when typed on a keyboard including our Cryptocolor® user visualization feature."

Prior to GuardedID, consumers and organizations relied on anti-virus software to keep them safe, but as the world has seen, anti-virus software is no match for today's sophisticated hackers armed with zero-day threats. The growth in cybercrime is a staggering eye opener. In a CNBC article which was published on August 14th, 2013 titled, "The Threat from cybercrime? You ain't see nothing yet," it was cited that cybercrime is now estimated at a staggering $400 billion annual market and continually increasing. It was noted that a large portion of those annual losses were due to the lack of a real-time anti-keylogging solution.

"The timing of this patent couldn't be more perfect for StrikeForce," says Kay. "In addition to the almost six million people that have downloaded our keystroke encryption technology over the last several years, this patent enables us to expand on our current patent litigation strategy."
