FAQ'S as of March 28th, 2013

Who is StrikeForce Technologies, Inc.?

StrikeForce Technologies provides a suite of online products that help prevent identity theft by protecting customers, employees and partners in real time at every vulnerable point. Its products prevent fraud during account creation, account access, transactions and changes, and transaction verification, saving businesses millions of dollars, offering new levels of customer protection, and strengthening their brand names.


What is the patented technology and what are its benefits?

The patented technology, which is used by StrikeForce's ProtectID® Authentication Product, offers 2-factor "Out-of-Band" authentication across many methods and devices for cyber security protection. Methods that are used include, for example, receiving a call and entering a PIN number or One-Time Password (OTP) on a phone-type device. This approach leverages a 2nd network for entering or receiving passwords, which locks out hackers - even if they have your username and password. The key benefits include greater security than simple username and password and even stronger security than physical hard tokens, ease of use, no need for additional hardware or devices, low cost, and real-time choices based on the policies of the companies providing the services.


What is the patent and when was it issued?

Patent 7,870,599, entitled "Multichannel Device Utilizing A Centralized Out-of-Band Authentication System (COBAS)," relates to several key technologies underlying a multichannel security system for granting and denying access to a host computer in response to a demand from an access-seeking individual and computer. The '599 Patent was granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office on January 11, 2011. A reexamination certificate was issued after a successful Ex Parte Reexamination concluded on December 27, 2011.


What are some of the key features of the StrikeForce ProtectID® Authentication Product?

The StrikeForce ProtectID® Authentication Product, which incorporates the invention of the 599 Patent, is the only known authentication product that provides an easy-to-use platform. It features full redundancy of methods for authentication utilizing hard and soft tokens, and biometric, voice, email, PIN and one time password (OTP) methods, all in one system with one management and administrative function that can be installed and serviced in-house, through the Cloud, or a hybrid of both.


Who are some of the clients and markets to which the StrikeForce ProtectID® Authentication Product is licensed?

A listing of our clients appears under our Company/Partners tab, which list includes companies in the Fortune 100, Fortune 500, and Fortune 1000, along with other clients in the financial, healthcare, telecommunications, technology, government, manufacturing and social media markets globally.


Why is StrikeForce bringing this lawsuit?

StrikeForce has spent a substantial amount of time and money developing the StrikeForce ProtectID® Authentication Product and in getting the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to issue the '599 Patent. This product was invented by our CTO, who conceived of the only way to avert identity theft long before this problem became widely recognized. In light of the above, StrikeForce is determined to protect its intellectual property and seek all remedies available to it under the law.
