Netlokr™ Photo Technology System Named “Authentication Solution of the Year”
Netlok® announced today that its patented Photolok™ technology, which replaces passwords with photos, has been selected as the winner of the “Authentication Solution of the Year” award from CyberSecurity Breakthrough, an independent organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market today. Photolok is part of the company’s groundbreaking Netlokr™ product, which integrates private messaging, confidential file sharing and protected data storage in one secure environment.
“We are thrilled to receive this prestigious industry recognition for our Photolok authentication system because there is nothing like it on the market today that truly protects the most common activities you do as a business or an individual online today,” said Tony Perez, CEO at Netlok. “The escalation of cybercrime demands that new solutions are found and Netlok is committed to shutting down the entry points for hackers.”
Netlokr, featuring the Photolok authentication technology, pairs its photo-based login system with a cloud-based cybervault that operates in Netlok’s own proprietary eco-system to avoid the vulnerable public pathways of the Internet. The system is designed to protect personal, business or client information and correspondence that are deemed highly confidential, sensitive or private. The Netlokr market includes individuals, groups and organizations, small and medium-sized businesses, large enterprises, government entities, celebrities and other high-profile individuals.
“CyberSecurity Breakthrough’s authentication award category was highly competitive this year, with 41 impressive nominations from a variety of leaders and innovators in the information security market,” said James Johnson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “We congratulate Netlok for breaking through the pack with their innovative approach to authentication to receive this recognition and we look forward to continued success for Netlok in 2018 and beyond.”
Nominations were evaluated by an independent panel of experts within the information security industry, and CyberSecurity Breakthrough judges considered authentication solutions featuring a variety of approaches, including multi-factor and password-based methods. Netlok’s patented Photolok™ technology was a stand-out among those nominated in this category, because of its innovative use of photos in the authentication system, combined with a simple set-up process and its ease-of-use.
