Green Approach to Cloud Authentication Processing Saves Cost and Energy
Boston, MA - January 12, 2012 -- Delfigo Security, the pioneer in intelligent authentication solutions, has been granted USPTO approval for the Cloud Authentication Processing (CAP) and Verification patent application filed under the “Green Technology Pilot Program”. The application, which was one of a limited group of only 3,500 petitions accepted, processes a unique method for cloud authentication that combines enhanced login accuracy and access speed based on multifactor authentication, with efficiencies in data processing and storage resulting in significant resource and cost savings.
“Working closely with a large financial client authenticating millions of daily users, we have identified efficiencies in authentication processing that result in better utilization and conservation of resources, as well as the potential for significant economic savings.” said Delfigo’s CEO Ralph A. Rodriguez. “We believe that large companies on the scale of Facebook, Twitter, or Google, who will potentially authenticate billion of users globally, could achieve millions of dollars in annual savings through the reduction in energy consumption requirements made possible by our Cloud Authentication Processing and Verification method.”
The growth of cloud computing and other high user count systems requires additional data traffic, complex mathematical computation and exponential increases in hardware storage requirements for password, device, network and geo-centric user data. This places huge drains on processing resources, related to CPU, memory, bus and circuit board speed and requires increases in power and HVAC resources needed to run these systems in massive cloud data centers.
Delfigo’s Cloud Authentication Processing and Verification method creates the highest known efficacy of end user login accuracy in relationship to end user login time to access cloud based systems safe and fast. This unique approach is estimated to decrease storage requirements by a 10:1 ratio, and reduce processing requirements as only a single stored entry is utilized to authenticate against prior end user data. This method will save millions of dollars per data center, and an enormous amount of natural resources needed by companies, organizations and countries globally to power and cool equipment.
