Authenware™ Applauds DHS Secretary’s Endorsement of Stronger Passwords in Cybersecurity Month Address

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano's remarks highlight the need for comprehensive cybersecurity solutions


WASHINGTON, DC - Tom Helou, President and COO of Authenware™, today released the below statement applauding the recommendations of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano in her Cybersecurity Month webinar. The Secretary highlighted the need for more secure passwords as a top tool for cyberspace safety.


"Cybersecurity is not a cyber-exclusive issue.  Instead, it is the highway on which commerce, news, and more travel each day, streamlining our lives and connecting our world.  This year, the United States has endured the most significant cyberattacks in its history.  And with growing reliance on network capabilities, the issues raised during National Cybersecurity Awareness Month become evermore critical to our wired way of life.


"Today, Secretary Napolitano addressed America's newest battlefront - cyberspace - and the administration's grassroots plan where each and every citizen becomes an integral part of the solution.  Authenware applauds Secretary Napolitano for endorsing the tactics outlined today which highlighted stronger passwords as a crucial element of network security.  However, at Authenware, we believe security must be redefined for passwords to be truly strengthened.  Implementing password evaluation systems that go beyond the observation of letters, numbers and symbols, we gauge online access through the calibrated analysis of innate typing patterns."
