U.S. Patent Granted for EPAS

Password Quality Enforcer Module Extension to Go Live in Summer

Ludwigsburg, (PresseBox) - Detack GmbH and its partner Praetors AG are proud to announce that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted the U.S. patent no. 9,292,681 B2 for technology employed by its Enterprise Password Assessment Solution EPAS.

EPAS, an on-premises SaaS solution delivered as a proprietary hardware appliance, is a joint development of Detack and Praetors to automatically and periodically evaluate the resilience of passwords against cyber-attacks. "Holding the patent certificate for EPAS in our hands tells us that we are not the only ones who believe that our technology is truly unique", says Costin Enache, Co-Founder & Managing Director at Detack.

Password Quality Enforcer Add-On in Summer

In addition, the company announces the next generation of its password quality management solution. "Finding weak passwords is one thing. To ensure that all new passwords are secure is the logical next step", says Karl-Ulrich Martin, also Co-Founder and Managing Director at Detack. This is why Detack designed the Password Quality Enforcer as an additional licensed feature to EPAS, a solution made to automatically prevent the use of weak, reused or shared passwords in enterprise environments at the time of password change.

"Detack supports all ambitions for cyber security. However, we clearly believe in strong passwords and think that the current hype towards multifactor authentication solutions does not solve the very basic problem. And that is still the use of weak passwords", says Costin Enache. "Our mission is to make passwords secure and the EPAS Password Quality Enforcer enables CIOs and IT admins to "tick the box" regarding this issue once and for all." The EPAS Password Quality Enforcer is scheduled for release this summer
