Winfrasoft has announced the capability to securely login to Windows using its PIN technology.

Launching the third version of its PINgrid, PINphrase and PINpass technology at this years' Infosecurity Europe exhibition, the company said that the technology augments the CTRL+ALT+DEL process of logging on in Windows, adding the requirement to provide a one-time passcode in addition to the Windows password.

A free new component of the AuthCentral 3.0 product release, the technology is currently in beta and will be officially launched at the exhibition at the end of April. The AuthCentral Desktop Logon Agent is available at no extra charge for Windows Vista, 7 and 8 (both 32-bit and 64-bit).

Steven Hope, technical director of Winfrasoft, said: “You can now log into Windows using this and you can deploy it through a systems management policy. You can add the grid system and it becomes one and a half factor, also run it offline as it is software and not cloud-based.”
