Rep. Honda to Visit Crossmatch in Redwood City

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Aug. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, U.S. Congressman Mike Honda (D-Silicon Valley) will visit Crossmatch™ to learn firsthand how Silicon Valley technologies can help secure networks and protect data. Crossmatch is a world leader in multi-factor identity management and authentication solutions whose technologies and expertise are helping federal agencies and commercial organizations achieve new levels of operational efficiency and security.  

"The vast majority of network breaches can be prevented with strong authentication," said Richard Agostinelli, Crossmatch CEO. "It is a privilege to have Rep. Honda joining us today to learn how our innovative strong authentication solutions secure network access, personal information and sensitive data."

According to the Office of Management & Budget, in its Annual FISMA Report to Congress in February 2015, over half of all threats to federal network security and data could have been prevented with strong authentication. Experts both inside and outside the federal government, including OMB, DHS, GSA and NIST, agree it is essential that federal agencies use multi-factor authentication. This would eliminate the use of only usernames and passwords, thereby mitigating the associated human factor risk.  

"Ensuring that our networks and the personal information of our workers are defended against cyber attacks is a national security priority," said Rep. Honda. "It is important for Congress to bring the federal government together with innovative technology leaders, such as Crossmatch, that have the expertise and solutions that will play a vital role in protecting our networks and data."
