StrikeForce Combines GuardedID, ProtectID in SMB Offering
The company aims at small businesses with a security package combining its GuardedID and ProtectID platforms.Security specialist StrikeForce Technologies launched a protection package aimed at small and midsize businesses, which combines both GuardedID and ProtectID into a bundle to shield businesses from identity theft and data breaches. StrikeForce's GuardedID anti-keylogging software protects the SMB by encrypting each keystroke in real-time, preventing keyloggers, malware that records every keystroke you type into the computer, from stealing their data. The service, which doesnt require any set-up fees and comes with a three-month commitment, is offered in three pricing tiers, with one to 100 users costing $5 per month, 101 to 500 users priced at $4 per month, and 501 to 1,000 users costing businesses $3 per month. ProtectID can be integrated into many types of environments, such as remote access (VPN), domain access, Website access, risk-mitigation and transaction-based systems, and can be installed locally on premise, or accessed through the companys Cloud Service.
"Most small businesses feel that they are safe by using antivirus programs and firewalls, but for today's cyber-criminals, that's child's play," George Waller, executive vice president of StrikeForce, said in a prepared statement. "The SMB community has become easy prey; all it takes to get hacked is for one employee to open an infected email, or visit a commonly used Website that has been tampered with and is now a harbinger of malware, or, download a presumably safe file from a business associate or friend. Hackers are taking advantage of the common things we do every day to communicate with others."
