CRYPTOCard Partners with Pyn Logic

CRYPTOCard has partnered with Florida-based network database security company, Pyn Logic. CRYPTOCard's two-factor authentication tokens now integrate with Pyn Logic's innovative Enzo security solution to make it simple for organizations to enforce tight database authentication controls for a rapidly-growing number of database servers.

Acting as a security guard the Enzo platform creates an invisible protection layer around databases to enforce granular authentication controls and simplify real-time monitoring. Enzo blocks unwanted database connections by inspecting and enforcing four critical components: who, what, when, and where. Utilizing CRYPTOCard tokens, Enzo provides credential aliasing and two-factor authentication to prevent "side-door" attacks by positively identifying users accessing sensitive databases. This enables corporations to implement a highly-granular database access control framework that significantly increases existing security capabilities.

Developed to meet real-world requirements where Linux and Mac workstations often live in a mixed Windows domain, with Windows clients and Apache or IIS Web servers CRYPTOCard's event-based two-factor authentication tokens make it simple and cost effective to eliminate weak static passwords by generating a random password for every logon attempt. One-time passwords cannot be reused by hackers and do not need to be memorized by users eliminating the help-desk costs associated with resetting forgotten passwords, and the security risk resulting from users writing them down.
