CaptureIn + Samsung KNOX: Better together
Right from the start of IT era the information security and user experience were the opposite poles. Complex password policies enforce users to keep it on the sticky notes. Or they should carry with them inconvenient hardware OTP tokens, smart-card and smart card reader wherever they go. But information security and especially identity management could be convenient. And this is exactly what CaptureIn products is all about.
Based on asymmetric cryptography CaptureIn provides advanced security comparable to the most complex one time password tokens. Without any central database of secrets, without exposing users to any human readable secrets, CaptureIn is considerably more efficient against modern threats, including social engineering. Fully compatible with European Banking Authority guidelines on secure authentication, CaptureIn enables to limit exposure to cyber risks, providing convenient and affordable, secure smartphone assisted authentication solution. From end user perspective, the only requirement is to have a compatible smartphone based on iOS, Android or Windows Phone with Internet connection (WiFi or cellular) and installed CaptureIn mobile application.
And today we are very proud to announce that thanks to our joint solution with Samsung Electronics based on Samsung KNOX platform CaptureIn products became even more convenient.
