Celebrate The Death Of The Password With Us At Interop 2015

Apr 24, 2015 By Gabe
Interop 2015

The root of most security breaches starts with a compromised password, yet little has been done to address that attack vector decades later...

That’s why we decided to take care of the password.

LaunchKey is the first fully decentralized authentication platform that allows enterprises to secure virtually any online or offline system using mobile devices as smart keys — eliminating the need for passwords.

We’ll be at Interop Vegas, the leading independent technology conference and expo designed to connect the world's IT community, to celebrate the death of the password.

You can find us in Booth #1359, watch our Interop Startup Hot Seat presentation, and most importantly, join us for free cocktails, raffle prizes, and relaxation at our Happy Hour.

See What LaunchKey Can Do

LaunchKey Booth

If you get a chance, stop by Booth, #1359, and get a firsthand look at how our platform turns mobile devices into powerful smart keys that can log in to any internet-connected application, verify identities, and authorize payment transactions in real-time.

Using LaunchKey eliminates the risk of password breaches and keeps user information anonymous by encrypting all personally identifying info on the end user’s device.

You’ll get to see first hand how our platform can work to solve your cybersecurity problems and ask any questions you have.

Startup Hot Seat

The Interop Startup Hot Seat features companies who are changing the face of the IT industry and LaunchKey is one of four startups chosen to present.

Come by and watch our Cofounder & CEO, Geoff Sanders, show attendees and investors what the future of authentication looks like without passwords in 8 minutes. The presentation starts on Thursday, April 30th at 1:00 p.m. PDT.

Once he’s finished sharing, you can ask questions along with attendees and panelists like Alex Benik, a partner at Battery Ventures.

We’d love to hear your questions or ideas at the Startup Hot Seat, but if you can’t make it, we’re hosting a Happy Hour on Tuesday, April 28, 5:00pm - 7:00pm. You don’t even have to talk about passwords, just enjoy the free drinks and good company.

Happy Hour — Free Cocktails

Mandalay Bay

Finally, after you’re done with all your official meetings, join us for free cocktails, raffle prizes, and relaxation.

LaunchKey will be hanging out at the Mandalay Bay House of Blues and we’d love for you to have a drink or two on us.

We’ll be excited to be off the floor, too. This is a casual event and anyone attending Interop is welcome to sign up.

Hope to see you there!

LaunchKey Password-less Cybersecurity Happy Hour at ISC West

ISC West

At ISC West, we're presenting the first fully decentralized authentication platform capable of immunizing your organization from password breaches, eliminating credit card fraud with real-time payment authorization, and even securing physical access control systems.

If you're attending the largest security industry trade show in the U.S., you'll get the chance to see how you can secure your business and applications with the mobile devices your users already own. Stop by the LaunchKey booth, #29018, to see demos of smartphones working as multi-factor smart keys — enabling virtually any enterprise or customer-facing application to be secured without passwords.

Using authentication factors like fingerprint scan, geofencing, combination lock and others, you can give your users the power to log into any online application, verify identity, and approve transactions in real-time.

By removing passwords from your application, it will no longer be at risk of password breaches, and since LaunchKey encrypts all authentication data locally on the end user's device, LaunchKey possesses no personally identifying information within its own servers. This anonymous architecture means even a successful attack on LaunchKey can't reveal any usable data capable of compromising the security of your users.

The best part? LaunchKey is ...

LaunchKey Passwordless Authentication, PyCon, and Drones, Oh My!

Apr 8, 2015 By Gabe
PyCon 2015

As a Python shop, we’re excited to introduce our passwordless authentication-as-a-service technology to our fellow developers at PyCon. LaunchKey's decentralized auth approach gives Python devs new ways to solve the challenging scenarios presented by the rising tide of password breaches and new problems that come with the growing Internet of Things.

Seeing the password as the root of security breaches, LaunchKey turns the mobile devices that people already own into smart keys capable of passwordless multi-factor authentication, real-time authorization, access control, and identity verification—all through one consolidated, anonymous platform.

There, that’s all the business speak I’ll use, but we hope to see you at PyCon. In fact, if you are up to the challenge, come by booth #310 and participate in our special PyCon contest where you can win an iPad Mini, a Pebble Smart Watch, a pair of Beats by Dre, or some sweet mini drones. I am sure you want to know more details, but all I can say is it involves our API and your dev skills, so come to the booth!

You can get an in-depth look at our REST API through the authentication flow documentation, and we have libraries and ...
