(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Responding to the New York Times article published August 5th “Russian Hackers Amass Over a Billion Internet Passwords“, Bright Plaza notes that its cloud-based Kaje® Picture Password service was designed and built over a PERIOD of five years to help prevent the risks and costs of password compromise as well as the common use of poor quality passwords. The service is now being introduced on a variety of websites in financial, health and other industries.
The Kaje SERVICE keeps passwords off the website entirely and uses advanced end-to-end encryption and well-established privacy practices. It completely separates the user information (on the website) from the password (anonymously on Kaje), eliminating the possibility of hackers collecting the Kaje password from the website. This reduces the risk and the cost of website breaches. As a bonus, Kaje is easier and more secure for users.
The Kaje service is available for all kinds of websites from the smallest to the largest. Anyone can go tohttp://ka.je, watch the videos to learn more, and try it out for themselves. Any website owner can REGISTER automatically using the web form. Just click the “Get Kaje on your site” button and get 10,000 free logins. The interface is a simple HTTPS API, and open source plugins for Drupal and WordPress are available.
Gary Bickford, VP at Bright Plaza noted, “Research by others and our own experience has shown that users love to use picture passwords, and Kaje. They can upload their own picture – which means they will have an emotional connection and remember more easily – draw a few lines on the picture, and that’s their password. Nobody likes to remember ‘RjEn)`X6KddjWTz’ – drawing on a picture is much easier.”
Jay Wittner, partner at Space Finance Group said, “We set the Integrated Space Analytics website up to use the Drupal Kaje module. This site will grow to include volunteers, financial and industry PEOPLE, and space enthusiasts. We wanted a new and easier way to login. All we had to do is load the module and start to use it, and we hope everyone will learn about the Integrated Space Plan!”
Website owners are also encouraged to talk with their providers about Kaje. Any hosting provider, web developer, software provider or other SERVICE provider is a candidate to become an affiliate and offer discounts on Kaje to their customers. This encourages customer loyalty and provides an additional revenue stream to these providers, while reducing risk and support problems for their customers and improving user experience.
The Kaje platform will soon support other proofs of knowledge including text passwords. This will allow these other proofs to be kept securely off the website and out of their database, never to be lost in a breach. It also will provide better privacy, anonymity for their users, since Kaje never knows anything about the user, while the website knows nothing about the proofs of knowledge.
