Delfigo Security Files US Patent for Optical Cognition and Visual Authentication and Authorization for Mobile Devices

Boston, MA - June 5, 2013 -- Delfigo Security filed for United States Patent protection (US Serial No: 61/829,354) on May 31, 2013 for Optical Cognition And Visual Authentication And Authorization For Mobile Devices. This new approach brings together the world of brain and cognitive science with the realm of devices and mobile technologies in order to enable humans globally to access their online accounts and mobile apps safely and securely without the use of a physical touch to their smartphones, tablets or mobile devices.

"One of British writer Arthur C. Clarke's laws of predictions says that 'any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.' When you combine what was once just science fiction with what is now possible you get a powerful solution to help solve the unique and true identity of a mobile user when accessing their private data and online accounts" said Delfigo's Chief Innovation Officer and CEO Ralph A. Rodriguez. "Technology providers are sadly still focused on the Dark Ages where they think having physical access to your device is good enough, or worse yet, they believe the solution of creating massive complexity using PINs or new widgets will help in protecting users.  This is a flawed strategy as people everywhere want a simple solution to validate themselves like DNA did for other fields of science."

Delfigo continues to make simple even simpler, providing novel means for users to comfortably engage in mobile security. An easy to use mobile interface that delivers cost effective, secure touch biometrics and device elements pushes mobile authentication beyond the weakness of Passwords and PINs and the frustration of cumbersome tokens or installed mobile certificates. The market requires more than a lowest common denominator approach aimed at commercially satisfactory security and avoidance of liability. The market requires a commitment to user experience, ease of integration and security that customers can rely on without thinking twice.

"Ironically, the same mobile device that makes life easy in so many ways is difficult to log into, since it typically asks for a long text string typed in on a screen-based keyboard with a high error rate," states Hyoun Park, Principal Analyst, Nucleus Research.  "By shifting the onus of identity recognition from digital calisthenics to a few glances of an eye, mobility usage can simultaneously become more secure and better attuned to our personal preferences."
