Charismathics has announced iEnigma, a dual-factor authentication system for consumers and enterprise users that use the iPhone. The iPhone has the capacity to store large amounts of personal and corporate data including email and corporate network access.
iEnigma allows users to authenticate access, digitally sign, and encrypt data by entering a password into the application. The iPhone is the second factor needed to access the data. That means that companies or people already using the iPhone only need the iEnigma software rather than a full authentication system.
The company says that the software will be offered for other smartphone platforms this year and will support discrete hardware and major government applications. The iPhone application is set to launch in April. The software also supports the iPod touch.
