Toopher Formalizes Toopher Partner Alliance

Toopher announced the launch of the Toopher Partner Alliance and released the names of the first 12 members. The members will get full access to the patented invisible authentication technology, all updates, help desk support, Certification Testing from Toopher, cobranded marketing tools and related visibility opportunities. Toopher provides convenient security solutions for financial services, enterprises, cloud services, healthcare, ecommerce, and education domains.

The initial 12 members of the Toopher Partner Alliance include, 21CT, Gluu, IBM, Iovation, LastPass, MailChimp, miiCard, mSIGNIA, Ping Identity, SYNNEX (News - Alert) Corporation, Viivo, and WordPress. Some of the partners will be integrating Toopher’s invisible multifactor authentication into their technologies, while others will be offering it as an authentication solution for their own customers.

In a release, Lance Kelly, director of Business Development at Toopher, said, “All companies in our program have demonstrated an enthusiastic desire to change the way their employees, customers and users experience strong security. These partners believe in the mission of Toopher, which is to create the strongest, most elegant online security solution available using our patented technology.”

Toopher offers invisible, innovative, location-based multifactor authentication and authorization using smartphones, which are ideal for protecting logins, online payments, and other sensitive online actions. Toopher’s critical action authentication utilizes out-of-band push, eliminating repetition poisoning. Some of Toopher’s key areas of focus include, prevention of online fraud and identity theft; usable, flexible, and ease of use of security; highly customizable; major platform support; significant reduction of password fraud; superior user experience; and increased efficiency and better data, for both consumers and enterprises.

Toopher enables easy and lean onboarding. Once the app is installed, the Toopher-enabled site’s security setting provides a button which activates the pairing phase. Toopher then pushes notifications to its users while login attempt is made for a paired account, providing detailed information of who is logging in, doing what and from where.  The user has the option to allow or deny log in, if the login is allowed then the user can enter using username and password, and immediate access is granted for the session. There is an option with a button for “automate when near here,” which ensures automatic and authenticated login in safe locations.
