Password free system unlocks your phone using your voice and behavior.

Password free system unlocks your phone using your voice and behaviorNuance Communications is a tech firm that understands how tired you are of keeping up with conventional passwords. The firm is promoting human voice recognition as a way to secure user accounts.

Traditional password authentication systems are often vulnerable and easy to hack. So, Nuance studied over 100 different characteristics of the human voice to determine whether or not it's you. Nuance's technology analyzes these differences to accurately determine the user. The voice biometric technology is refined to the point it can weed out voice impersonators, digital recordings and synthetic voices that try to dupe its system.

Nuances founder claims "In most cases, we can differentiate consistently between identical twins,"

From the personal security of citizens to companies like Sony, and (most recently) politicians, the need to move beyond simple password technology and circumvent hackers has never been more urgent. Last year alone, major companies like Yahoo, LinkedIn, and Dropbox all reported major data breaches involving account details such as email addresses and hashed passwords. With such information, a hacker can plunder through an email account and gain access to valuable personal identity information, financial records and more.

Another company that has taken this technology a step further is SecureAuth - it lets companies go "passwordless," and also spots any unusual activity on a user account. "The approach leverages an existing device many people have: Smartphones built with fingerprint readers," said Keith Graham, CTO of SecureAuth.

When you log on to a SecureAuth system, you receive a notification sent to your phone that can only be unlocked with your fingerprint. Clicking on the notification will then grant access to the system.

However, SecureAuth's authentication process is also on the lookout for unusual behavior from the user even after log on. For instance, it'll examine inconsistencies with the person's keystrokes, mouse movements, where the user logged in from, at what time, along with the configuration settings on the device. In that way, SecureAuth can assess whether someone accessing the system is possibly a hacker or not. "It doesn't only matter how big a lock you have on the door," Graham said. "It's about how quickly you can respond to remove the attacker from the environment."

They did a great job in setting up my new laptop. They loaded new software and they moved over all my data and programs from a 12-year-old desktop. I'm thrilled with the new, faster computer and having all my old systems still working!!

I had a hard drive go down on a piece of video equipment. Michael and Computer Corner had me up and running in just a few days (parts had to be ordered). Thank you Computer Corner!

My son owns a computer businness in NC so when we needed someone local, we got a recommendation for Computer Corner from a friend. I am more than pleased. I will recommend them in a heartbeat. They communicated the status of my computer to me by text and the work was done very fast and the turnaround would probably have been faster if it hadn't been Thanksgiving week.

Best experience I've had with laptop repairs in Florida. Answered my many questions quickly, informed me of all of my options, and made sure I took home a well tuned machine. All repairs are costly no matter where you go, but at least you get what you pay for with the helpful staff here. As I type this, I'm planning another trip to see them.
