Founded in September of 2011, but formally launched this year, San Francisco-based NetAuthority claims six years of intellectual property development in the design of its new product for strong authentication. Based on the idea that most strategies for multifactor authentication are either too complex or too cumbersome, NetAuthority is trying to bring simplicity and ease-of-use to the equation. The company claims that its products can identify and authenticate virtually any Internet-enabled device, once it is introduced to the system, and does so with no perceptible latency. The system also provides reporting on alarms, and feeders for the existing log management and monitoring tools.
