NEW YORK, Jan. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dashlane, the leader in online identity management, announces a collaboration with Intel® to deploy Intel® Software Guard Extension (SGX) technology with Dashlane's award-winning password manager. Dashlane's industry-leading and patented security software combined with Intel® SGX will provide an unrivaled layer of online protection.
Unrivaled Software + Hardware Security Combination
Massive security breaches dominated the headlines in 2016. As such, consumers and businesses are more concerned than ever about cybersecurity risks. That's why Dashlane is proud to announce support for Intel® Software Guard Extensions, a powerful security technology built into the latest Intel® Core™ processors.
Dashlane is the only password manager with a USPTO patented security architecture.
A user's data is safeguarded by their master password- the key that unlocks all of their data locally on their device. This password, which Dashlane requires to be a mix of at least eight characters, is not stored on any Dashlane servers and no Dashlane employee ever has access to it. Dashlane also encrypts all data with AES-256 and hosts it on Amazon's AWS, the most respected and secure hosting solution on the market.
This proprietary backend technology provides Dashlane users with a world-class level of security and the addition of Intel® SGX will provide an extra layer of hardware-based protection. When combined with Dashlane, Intel® SGX can be used to protect the user's data and seal them to the device, even if a hacker did export data to another machine.
When merged with Dashlane's industry-leading software, Intel® SGX will provide users with an unparalleled layer of password protection.
Cutting Edge Innovation
"Dashlane is committed to staying on the cutting edge of security," states Emmanuel Schalit, CEO, Dashlane. "The new Intel® Core™ processors provide a powerful new way to protect your passwords. Dashlane is taking full advantage of Intel's built-in hardware security to make our users' passwords safer than ever."
"The collaboration to bring Intel hardware-based security with Dashlane's easy to use password manager is a remarkable step in protecting users against the most current password related breaches." says Rick Echevarria, Vice President, Software and Solutions Group, and General Manager, Platform Security Division.
