Announcing the World's First Two-Factor Authentication for Databases - MENTIS iVerify

Join OHUG and MENTIS for this important webinar to learn how iVerify™ tackles the risks posed by password connections

NEW YORK, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MENTIS Software (www.MENTISoftware.com), the leader in enterprise security and compliance, has announced an upcoming educational webinar on the weak link in data security: passwords.

The hour-long presentation will focus on steps to strengthen the security of connections to databases and applications, which has proven to be one of the easiest pathways to a breach.  MENTIS' newest product in its top-ranked security lineup takes on the challenge: iVerify provides two-factor authentication for both applications AND databases, the only product on the market that brings both these needed capabilities.

MENTIS launched iVerify at last month's OHUG Global Conference and based on response, has partnered with OHUG to present, "Announcing the World's First Two-Factor Authentication for Databases."

In 2016, over $83 billion was spent securing sensitive information. Only a small percentage of that was spent to protect data inside the network. And yet that's where it's most needed.  Recent studies have suggested two out of three data breaches involve weak passwords.  The gold standard for strengthening passwords is two-factor authentication, where the user provides two types of verification.

iVerify takes two-factor authentication to the next level. Not only does MENTIS offer 2FA for applications and databases, the only solution to secure both of these critical entry points, but MENTIS also circumvents the risky SMS and email recovery paths. Recognizing that both SMS and email may be compromised, MENTIS instead provides an independent mechanism that can be hosted either on-premise or in the cloud, which will generate a one-time credential to authenticate the user.

Date: July 20, 2017

Time: 12:00 Noon CST

Presented by: Rajesh Parthasarathy, MENTIS Founder & CEO

"iVerify not only adds that critical second layer of security to the connection, but was designed to be quick and easy to use," commented Parthasarathy.  "Within seconds, the user will be authenticated and able to proceed with the task at hand.  With our comprehensive platform of discovery, masking, monitoring, and data retirement, our customers have an end-to-end solution, with an architecture designed to evolve to meet today's security challenges. iVerify also continues our tradition of thinking in terms of risk – avoiding SMS and email in this case – when we design a solution.  Two-factor authentication for applications may tick the box for 2FA, but for MENTIS, that is not good enough – so we built 2FA for databases as well."
