CHICAGO, June 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Keeper Security, Inc., the world's leading password manager and secure digital vault, today announced its membership in the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance. Keeper recently announced that its latest release integrates with FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) compatible hardware security keys, such as YubiKey, to provide easy two-factor authentication (2FA) for businesses and individual customers.
The FIDO Alliance is a nonprofit organization formed to address lack of interoperability among strong authentication devices as well as the problems users face with creating and remembering multiple usernames and passwords. It is changing the nature of authentication by developing specifications that define an open, scalable, interoperable set of mechanisms that supplant reliance on passwords to securely authenticate users of online services.
"Keeper Security is a security-focused company. FIDO authentication is quickly becoming the popular standard in strong authentication for consumers and businesses," said Darren Guccione, CEO and co-founder of Keeper Security, Inc. "We are pleased to become a FIDO member to reinforce our commitment of protecting our customers with modern technology."
Keeper is a software platform that provides both password management and secure digital file storage for businesses. The platform ensures that employees utilize Keeper to protect the organization's most sensitive assets. Keeper is a zero-knowledge platform that incorporates the industry's strongest security protocols while also having prominent industry certifications including SOC 2, TRUSTe, Qualys and HIPAA.
"I am pleased to welcome Keeper into the FIDO Alliance and thank them for their commitment to modern strong authentication. Keeper, more than most, understands the need for a more secure approach to user authentication based on un-phishable account credentials and faster, easier user experiences," said Brett McDowell, executive director of the FIDO Alliance. "Keeper is now part of a growing global ecosystem using FIDO standards to deliver simpler, stronger authentication."
