Cloud Authentication Processing Saves Cost and Energy Resources
Boston, MA - February 14, 2013 -- Delfigo Security, the pioneer in intelligent authentication solutions, has been granted a United States Patent for Cloud Authentication Processing and Verification filed under the US Patent and Trademark Office Green Technology Program. This patent is a unique method for cloud authentication that combines enhanced login accuracy and login access speed based on multifactor authentication with efficiencies in data processing and storage, resulting in significant savings in cost and computing resources.
“We congratulate the USPTO for initiating this vital program to accelerate the review of patent applications for green technology inventions,” said Ralph A. Rodriguez, CEO, Delfigo Security. “By enabling Delfigo and other innovators in the technology sector to bring our inventions to market more quickly, this program is helping to accelerate unique solutions to environmental challenges, while also growing the economy and creating new jobs as power and resources are needed to fuel the cloud.”
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 unique Cloud Authentication Processing and Verification approach is estimated to decrease storage and physical requirements by a 10:1 ratio while also reducing 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. The net effect is a savings of an enormous amount of natural resources needed by companies, organizations and countries globally to power and cool equipment.
750 million cloud users would only consume 27.5 TBs of ID based storage a month versus 275 Terabytes (10:1 ratio)
“The pattern is already well-established. Many traditional enterprise security solutions need to be re-architected to work well in a large-scale, highly-virtualized environment – for example, anti-virus / anti-malware solutions externalizing their scanning engines to free up the resources of the hypervisor host to support virtual machines,” said Derek Brink, Vice President and Research Fellow for IT Security and IT GRC, Aberdeen Group. “A miniscule savings for user authentication, integrated across every login, every day for hundreds of millions of users worldwide – such as the solution described by Delfigo's Cloud Authentication Processing and Verification – is very consistent with this inevitable trend.”
