Secfense partners with Cherry GmbH, a company based in Germany that manufactures hardware products with a focus on Office, Gaming, Industry, Security, and switches for mechanical keyboards. The company has its origins in the United States and its branches are further spread into France and China.

Cherry is also a producer of CHERRY MC 4900 an easy logon mouse equipped with fingerprint authentication mechanisms.

CHERRY MC 4900

A couple of months ago Marcin Szary, our CTO had the pleasure to present our demo during one of the biggest healthcare events in Europe called DMEA Healthcare (previously known as ConhIT) in Berlin.  Right after the presentation, the Cherry representative came to us to chat a little about technology and cybersecurity.

Just a couple of months has passed since that event and we are proud and happy to announce that both companies Secfense and Cherry GmbH decided to partner together and bring WebAuthn mechanisms in front of more people.

FIDO2 is a web standard, that was published by World Wide Web Consortium. Its sole and major purpose is to reinforce the authentication process. WebAuthn offers a new authentication method that would not involve the need to create password/s and insert the password/s each time a person logs in. It allows the person to use local authenticators such as fingerprint keyboards, biometric mice, and other personal devices and systems (Windows Hello) equipped in biometric authentication.

The Secfense’s technology called Secfense User Access Security Broker and the biometric device CHERRY MC 4900 can now be used together and therefore people and businesses that will purchase Cherry’s biometric products will be able to take advantage of the WebAuthn standard and therefore make the authentication process easier, faster and on the same time more secure.

WebAuthn is such a big thing mostly because cyber security was always a struggle between more comfort vs more security. It is not common where both user comfort and higher level of security can be introduced at the same time.

And if you’d like to learn more about microauthorizations, which was what triggered the initial conversation between Cherry’s representative and Marcin during the show in Berlin then watch this short animation below that perfectly explains what the whole this is about.

Testimonials

Before investing in Secfense, we had the opportunity to talk to its existing clients. Their reactions were unanimous: wow, it’s so easy to use. We were particularly impressed by the fact that implementing their solution does not require the involvement of IT developers. It gives Secfense a huge advantage over the competition, and at the same time opens the door to potential customers who so far were afraid of changes related to the implementation of multi-factor authentication solutions.

Even when the network and infrastructure are secured enough, social engineering and passwords can be used to gain control of the system by attackers. Multifactor authentication is the current trend. Secfense addresses this and allows you to build zero trust security and upgrade your current systems to passwordless applications within minutes, solving this problem right away,” said Eduard Kučera, Partner at Presto Ventures and cybersecurity expert – former Director in hugely successful Czech multinational cyber security firm Avast.

One of the biggest challenges the world is facing today is securing our identity online. That’s why we were so keen to have Secfense in our portfolio. They make it possible to introduce strong authentication in an automated way. Until now, organizations had to selectively protect applications because the deployment of new technology was very hard, or even impossible. With Secfense, the implementation of multi-factor authentication is no longer a problem, and all organizations can use the highest standards of authentication security.

We are faced with new challenges every day. We must always be one step ahead of the attackers and know what they are going to do before they do it. We are convinced that the User Access Security Broker will bring security to a new level, both for those working at the office and from home. For us, working with Secfense is an opportunity to exchange experience with developers who put great value on out-of-the-box thinking.

Two-factor authentication is known to be one of the best ways to protect against phishing; however, its implementation has always been difficult. Secfense helped us solve that problem. With their security broker, we were able to introduce various 2FA methods on our web applications at once.
