  • - Business Value

    Pattern Overview


    CNBSignIn is a patent-pending, easy-to-use, comprehensive, multi-factor user authentication solution that eliminates the need for hardware devices such as tokens, dongles and smart cards, and the associated capital expense on the authentication server setup.

    Instead, devices like mobile phones or PDAs will be used as hardware to enable the authentication. In addition, CNBSignIn utilizes a high level encryption to securely authenticate the pins before user access is granted.

    This solution can significantly benefit the following market segments, primarily in Cloud computing - to secure access to any confidential data source, that requires a username and password. -Corporations (Cloud Computing, SaaS applications, secure corporate email access, secure access to internal IT systems, etc) -Banks, Stock Trading companies, Mutual/Pension Fund companies (secure access to customer accounts, internal IT systems security) -Healthcare – Hospitals, Physician clinics, Research facilities, etc (to protect medical records access, exchange of data, transcription, etc) - State Departments - primarily Health and Human Services, Depts of Public Safety, Power companies, Water/Utilities, etc (for secure access to data sources within these departments) - Universities, School districts (Student information systems, Research databases, Financial information, etc) - Defense Organizations (secure access to confidential data systems) - Social Networking sites like Facebook, etc.

    Business Case

    This solution can significantly benefit the following market segments, including Cloud computing and SaaS applications - to secure access to any confidential data source, that requires a username and password.

    -Corporations (Cloud Computing, SaaS applications, secure corporate email access, secure access to internal IT systems, etc)

    -Banks, Stock Trading companies, Mutual/Pension Fund companies (secure access to customer accounts, internal IT systems security)

    -Healthcare – Hospitals, Physician clinics, Research facilities, etc (to protect medical records access, exchange of data, transcription, etc)

    -State Government Departments - primarily Health and Human Services, Power companies, Water/Utilities, etc (for secure access to data sources within these departments)

    -Universities, School districts (Student information systems, Research databases, Financial information, etc)

    -Defense Organizations (secure access to confidential data systems)

    -Social Networking sites

    A good analogy of the functionality is: if you imagine a house as the IT System, the current technologies are so expensive, that organizations can only afford to lock the front door. It is cost-prohibitive to lock the doors to the rooms and the devices that contain the data.

    But, CNBSignIn cannot only lock the front door, but also the doors to the rooms and the devices that contain the confidential data. And, it also provides multi-lock, multi-layered security, given its small foot-print - especially beneficial in Cloud Computing environments and for SaaS applications.

    Business Problem

    Recent incidents of breach of secure data at several organizations and Epsilon, warrant additional authentication of user identity. The current authentication methodology, which is based on e-tokens and security questions, is obsolete and render confidential data systems vulnerable to hackers.

    CNBSignIn is a patent-pending, multi-factor authentication system that uses readily available devices such as mobile phones for secure authentication.
