Did you know most modern computing devices like PCs, smartphones, and tablets come with special cryptoprocessors or "crypto chips" made specifically for the secure operation and storage of cryptographic data? This special hardware provides more security for cryptographic functionality by segregating the cryptographic operations and data from the standard operating environment.
Unfortunately, many developers and organizations are either unaware of this trusted execution technology or they lack the technical means to integrate with it. Fortunately, our friends at Rivetz are developing the infrastructure and tools to make leveraging these crypto chips easier and more accessible.
Today, Rivetz Corp. has announced a partnership with LaunchKey to provide a combined solution that offers a simple and secure way to utilize hardware protected multi-factor authentication with online services and applications. We're very excited to be working with Rivetz and we look forward to offering our combined solution in the near future. Stay tuned!

LaunchKey was recently featured in an infographic created by our friends at Veracode. This company is the creator of the world's leading application risk management platform. What's our affiliation with Veracode? We earned VerAfied status, offered exclusively by Veracode, earlier this year. The VerAfied status validates that we have met or exceeded industry standards for security, reliability and compliance for our anonymous multi-factor authentication platform. As you know, we take security very seriously and we are committed to developing secure applications. Take a look below.
LaunchKey has once again proven its commitment to developing secure applications for enterprise partners, developers and individuals. Praetorian, a leading information security provider, has found the LaunchKey platform exceeds information security best practices as determined by the company's well-respected security assessment.
Following their comprehensive methodology, Praetorian conducted a thorough review of the LaunchKey web and mobile applications, along with the supporting network infrastructure, for a set period of time. During the assessment we also demonstrated our ability to actively identify and remediate application vulnerabilities, earning high praise from the Praetorian assessment team.
LaunchKey is dedicated to ongoing, proactive security testing as we continue to expose the vulnerabilities inherent in passwords and revolutionize the way companies and individuals gain access to online information and content. Protecting the privacy and security of users and organizations is paramount.
Praetorian Vice President of Marketing Paul West Jauregui commented:
"The LaunchKey team demonstrated a solid understanding of security. They recognize the importance of security and quickly took steps to remediate issues identified during the initial Praetorian assessment, resolving some of the issues while testing was still underway."
I'm proud to announce that LaunchKey has earned VerAfied status for our multi-factor authentication application. The certification validates that we have met or exceeded industry standards for security, reliability and compliance, actively identifying and remediating application vulnerabilities to provide our users with one of the highest levels of software assurance and security verification. The VerAfied status is offered by Veracode, creator of the world's leading Application Risk Management Platform.
The enterprise market is looking to LaunchKey to become the authentication tool of choice, and it's our mission to kill passwords, evolve user authentication, and create an anonymous and secure online experience through our application. The VerAfied mark further demonstrates our commitment to developing secure applications for individuals, developers and enterprise partners alike.
Here's what Veracode had to say about LaunchKey:
"We are finding that CIOs and CSOs are asking their purchasing teams to take security into consideration when procuring new applications. For this reason, it is important that software vendors find a way to demonstrate their software is built using secure development practices," said Chris Wysopal, co-founder and CTO of Veracode. "The VerAfied mark tells the world that LaunchKey is testing for application vulnerabilities and complying ...
