Brainloop AG: SMS More Secure Than Security Tokens

BRAINLOOP AG informed about data security IN companies Munich, June 21, 2011 recently, the security company RSA admitted a partially successful hacker attack on its servers. As was described in a post of the computer week of the 14.06.2011, the impact of hacker attacks are more serious than previously thought and reveal the weakness of token systems for dial-in protected areas of IT. This topic may be of little significance for private users, but represents a serious security risk for businesses and public institutions that must ensure data security and privacy. Often local authentication techniques are needed for protection from the document, which go beyond a simple password and deny unauthorized persons access to confidential information and documents. The use of token guarantees no optimal data security.

So called one-time passwords (OTP one time password =) during token already exist before login, you can login and OTP gephisht”. In this way, they endanger the safe access to confidential documents and fail to protect them effectively. Against the use of token technology now in the years, the complex and expensive management speaks of hardware tokens. These must be registered on the authentication server, and mapped to the respective users. Not rarely the tokens are lost and then to represent to logoff automatically a vulnerability or they are, as in the current case, hacked and need to be replaced. This solution in terms of data security and document protection is complicated and very expensive. SMS-based authentication solutions are comparatively safe, slim in the management and therefore inexpensive. They create a high level of data security in the enterprise and are superior to the common token solutions thus.

Markus Seyfried, CTO Brainloop AG, explains the own solution for data backup in the enterprise: we provide secure access to mission-critical information a so-called two-factor authentication on. This multi-stage login procedures combined short-lived SMS PIN, generated in the real time process using a user name and a password with one and is sent to the mobile phone of the user. There it only applies in a session and expires after a certain time.” Because mobile phones are for the reachability of users of great importance, their loss is quickly. A blocking of the SIM card by the user is the logical consequence. Thus, this device represents a highly flexible and secure infrastructure that helps to ensure document security and also for the protection of personal data. Overview of solutions of Brainloop AG in the area of data security, document security, protection of application documents and compliance, see also: products/sicherheit.html about Brainloop AG which Brainloop AG with its headquarters in Munich and Boston is the leading provider of document compliance management (DCM) solutions for highly secure dealing with confidential documents.

More compliance requirements are met by full traceability and logging of all accesses and actions. Applied solutions and others in the body communication, human resources departments and the financial and Contract management.

LEDs For Industrial And Craft

Manufacturing industry increasingly uses light-emitting diodes tiny light-emitting diodes provide light in huge factories? It sounds contradictory, is the result of a rapid technical development. Signal indicators or machine lights, LEDs have conquered early industrial lighting. Kidney Foundation takes a slightly different approach. Now further penetrate the diodes in industry and craft, licht.de, the society reported good light: LEDs ensure the emergency lighting, provide sufficient light on machines and conveyor belts and are even on their way to take over the General lighting in all factories. This potential was just years ago to be impossible. The secret of success: The LED has qualities that make it very interesting for use in industrial and craft enterprises. Because light is an important productivity factor for companies: good lighting ensures the quality there because it allows precise work. It prevents accidents and increases motivation and performance of employees. At the same time, the lighting must be in Companies efficient and durable be to minimise the costs of energy and maintenance.

High quality in various applications of LEDs to achieve the required high quality of light in the most diverse applications. So LEDs such as ceiling lights provide a sufficient level of lighting in the room or give individual jobs extra light in pendants and luminaires. Thanks to its compact design, this LEDs bring the light exactly where it is needed. They support built in magnifying lamps for example the fine work in chip manufacturing, or arts and crafts. Robust light sources require factories and workshops. The LED meets this requirement, because she largely insensitive is important for use against shocks or vibrations – and in machines. In dusty or humid workplaces LEDs with high protection prevent particles or moisture reduce the quality of light or let fall off even the lighting. LEDs: progress not only teach plenty of light with little power of but LEDs Light quality and comfort.

Above all, help companies to save costs for operation and maintenance. Today, LEDs produce light with relatively little power. And the efficiency of the diodes is steadily increasing. They get a service life of 50,000 hours, which considerably reduces maintenance costs. The control of the LEDs about modern lighting management daylight sensors and occupancy sensors in addition reduces power consumption so that the higher cost of LED lighting quickly pay for themselves. A simple example illustrates the potential for savings: a LED spots with nine Watts costs despite the higher purchase price after 5,000 hours in which a comparable Halogen lighting. The savings of 1,000 euros is 50,000 hours of operation. Company description on licht.de licht.de – the Fordergemeinschaft good light – is since 1970 the competent partner when it comes to questions of lighting. The society brings together the expertise of more than 130 member companies from the luminaire and Light industry, which are organized in the ZVEI – Zentralverband Elektrotechnik- und electronics industry. Licht.de informed about current aspects of efficient lighting and knowledge based around light, lighting and light bulbs – vendor-neutral and competent.
