AuthenWare, a provider in keystroke biometrics software, announced Hutchinson Port Holdings Group (HPH) selected its patent-pending AuthenTest software to handle the security interactions between its customers and Customs for its Americas operation. HPH is the port investor, developer and operator.
"We evaluated other biometric solutions such as tokens, security cards, and other traditional solutions but found them to be inadequate for our needs," said Pedro Maidana, CIO at Hutchinson. "We selected AuthenTest because it is cost-effective, easy to implement, requires no special hardware, and most importantly, it is non-intrusive to our users."
HPH Americas is implementing AuthenTest to increase the security of the interactions between its customers and customs declaration systems. The company has a portal by which its customers declaring goods entering or leaving port. Using AuthenTest, HPH will be able to ensure that its customers can transact with the customs application safely, and without risk sensitive information being lost, stolen or misused.
AuthenTest offers a different approach towards handling security by not only securing information access through keystroke biometrics, but also by rendering any stolen credentials useless. It accomplishes this through a proprietary protocol that creates and maintains a unique personal security pattern for each user every time that he or she enters data using the keyboard.
"We are proud that HPH Americas has selected AuthenTest for its application security needs," said Tom Helou, President and COO, AuthenWare. "Our unique approach towards keystroke biometrics protects companies against any unauthorized access to sensitive data, making it the ideal solution for organizations of all sizes."
