Publisher Description

Proteg is an innovative software solution that allows users to secure their personal or notebook computers by preventing unauthorized access. It fortifies the existing Windows login mechanism by binding the user account to an ubiquitous hardware device, a portable USB storage device (USB Key, USB flash drive, thumbdrive). An additional hardware component becomes compulsory in order to login to the computer instead of relying solely on the conventional username and password pair. Due to the increasing threats, passwords - the way most people access their computers today - can no longer keep pace with the security requirements of todays challenging computing world. Over the years the password technique has not kept up with new technologies and methods used by hackers. One can easily gain access to the latest hacking program, many freely available over the Internet, enabling unauthorized access to valuable information resources which reside in our computer. Unauthorized access also means invasion of our privacy. To better secure our information assets, Proteg provides a sophisticated technique for user identification and authentication to improve on passwords. This technique can certainly offer much greater security than passwords as this hardware based system (commonly known as two-factor authentication system) creates a physical link between a user and his identity. In a two-factor authentication system like Proteg, the user is required to present the physical hardware (something the user has) and provide the correct password (something the user knows) that corresponds to the said hardware in order to gain legitimate access to the system. Although smart cards and one-time password generator devices can be very effective in providing two-factor authentication, they are typically too expensive, difficult to manage and inflexible. Despite the enhanced level of security provided, these technologies come at high costs, much of which is due to added hardware component.

Each Licensed Copy of Proteg may either be used by a single person who uses the software personally on one or more computers, or installed on a single workstation used non-simultaneously by multiple people, but not both. This is not a concurrent use license.

Each Licensed Copy of Proteg includes Proteg Manager, which may be used to enable and disable Proteg on the computer. You may not alter or modify the Proteg Manager, nor permit anyone else to do so.

Proteg, and any and all accompanying software, files, data and materials, are distributed and provided "AS IS" and with no warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, without limitation, any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Inflexpoint does not warrant, guarantee, or make any representations regarding the use of, or the results of the use of, Proteg. Inflexpoint does not warrant that the operation of Proteg will be uninterrupted or error-free, or that the use of any passwords and/or encryption features will be effective in preventing the unintentional disclosure of information contained in any file. Further, there is no warranty for the optional virus scanning feature. (Proteg does not scan for viruses; it simply runs external programs that claim to perform this function.) You acknowledge that good data processing procedure dictates that any program, including Proteg, must be thoroughly tested with non-critical data before there is any reliance on it, and you hereby assume the entire risk of all use of the copies of Proteg covered by this License.

In addition, in no event does Inflexpoint authorize you or anyone else to use Proteg in applications or systems where Protegs failure to perform can reasonably be expected to result in a significant physical injury, or in loss of property, or in loss of life. Any such use is entirely at your own risk, and you agree to hold Inflexpoint harmless from any and all claims or losses relating to such unauthorized use.

There are no third-party beneficiaries of any promises, obligations, or representations made by Inflexpoint herein. Any waiver by Inflexpoint of any violation of this License by you shall not constitute, nor contribute to, a waiver by Inflexpoint of any other or future violation by you of the same provision, or any other provision, of this License.
