With identity theft effecting approximately 9.9 million Americans each year and costing US business and consumers over $48 billion annually, Performance Management Associates (PMA) has come to the aid of consumers with SecurePass 1.1, an inexpensive software product designed to help keep your identity safe from online ID thieves. In addition to helping protect your ID while online, SecurePass offers a number of convenience features that make surfing the web faster, simpler and safer.
SecurePass is focused on security and convenience features surrounding the use of online passwords, which are often the weakest link in a consumer’s online security. If you use the convenience of online banking, you are always asked to enter a user ID and a personal password before you can logon. As your password is the key link in this security chain, the strength of your password determines the safety of your data. If you use a week password your data is NOT SAFE. ID thieves can use specialized software to break a simple password in minutes or even seconds. SecurePass replaces week and easily accessed passwords with complex highly secure passwords that are virtually unbreakable. “Unfortunately the Internet has become a dangerous place and sophisticated cyber criminals can secretly steal your valuable personal identity data. With SecurePass we aim to change that, making the Internet safe for consumers” said Ibraz Anwar, CEO of PMA.
While having strong passwords is great, memorizing all these complex passwords would give even Albert Einstein a headache. SecurePass solves this problem by managing all your passwords so you have nothing to remember. Even though security experts state that you should never use your social security number as a password, many people do this because it is a number they will not forget. In addition, some people use one easily remembered password for all the sites they visit. This is also a very risky and unsafe procedure. SecurePass puts a stop to these unsafe practices by creating a unique and strong password for each password protected site and then automates the login process so you have nothing to remember. When using SecurePass you will always have a highly secure password, never need to remember passwords, and no two sites will ever have the same password.
While the convenience of SecurePass makes surfing the web faster and easier, the real value lies in its ability to provide a level of security that no similar product can offer. Other products that claim to do many of the things SecurePass does, simply store your valuable passwords on your hard-drive. ID thieves are constantly hacking computers in search of these valuable password folders. What sets SecurePass apart from all similar products is its ability to NEVER STORE PASSWORDS on a hard drive, or any other location. Simply put, if a hacker gets into a computer using SecurePass, there are no passwords for them to find. No passwords are ever stored, in any location, encrypted or other wise. This proprietary process is unique to SecurePass and makes it the safest way to create and manage your valuable passwords.
To offer additional convenience, SecurePass (securenez.com) has been automated so that a single mouse click takes you to your selected password protected site, enters your user ID and unique password – automatically. The creators of SecurePass call this process “One Click Login”. Once you have entered your web site data into Secure Pass, logging onto any of your sites is one click away. Chris Baird, VP of Marketing for PMA explains, “For instance, if you are an eBay user, simply open SecurePass, highlight eBay in your menu of sites and click “One Click Login”. SecurePass then automatically launches your web browser, takes you to eBay, places your user ID and Password into the appropriate location and BAM, Fast and simple, you logged in”.
