SplashData Announces Enterprise and Government
of Best-Selling SplashID Password Application
Application Enables Corporate Users to Encrypt, Store and Manage
Critical Passwords, Account Information and Logins
Los Gatos, Calif. – August 21, 2006 –SplashData,
Inc., the leading provider of mobile productivity software, today announced
the release of the Enterprise and Government Edition of its popular SplashID
application for securely organizing and managing passwords, user names
and other sensitive records. SplashID currently has over 500,000
users of its consumer versions for Windows, Mac OS, Palm OS, Windows
Mobile Pocket PC and Smartphone, Symbian Series 60, Symbian UIQ and BlackBerry.
SplashID Enterprise and Government Edition can be customized to fit
the needs of enterprise customers. Deployments can be tailored to match
an organization's desktop and mobile platform standards, enabling users
to easily create strong passwords, preventing users from printing lists
of passwords and allowing companies to add its own branding to the application's
screens. This new edition of SplashID can help enterprises meet compliance
requirements for corporate internal controls under Sarbanes-Oxley and
HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) standards.
Enterprise organizations that have made SplashID available to their
employees include Lawrence Livermore National Labs, NetBank and the Getty
"Data security is critical to NetBank, and SplashID provides a
tailored approach to the security of our employees' passwords," said
Barry Miller, Director of Technology Risk and Information Security at
NetBank. "To help meet our high security standards, NetBank employees
rely on SplashID as a data vault to protect their sensitive login information."
With 256-bit Blowfish encryption, a masking feature and a random password
generator, SplashID Enterprise and Government Edition allows employees
to securely store user names, passwords, filenames and other confidential
information on desktop and notebook computers as well as smartphones
and PDAs, including Treo, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile devices.
Due to the nature of confidential information, government agencies and
enterprises have specialized security requirements, such as mandatory
frequent password changes, that make keeping track of passwords and logins
a headache for many users. According to the United States Computer Emergency
Readiness Team, most people choose passwords based on personal information
that is easy to remember. Unfortunately, this makes the password easy
for an attacker to guess or "crack."
Organizations frequently ask employees to choose a password that contains
letters and numbers and to change passwords regularly, making the passwords
cumbersome and difficult to remember. Therefore, many users write
down their passwords, list them in an unprotected computer file or spreadsheet
or use variations of the same password over and over again. All
of these methods create substantial security risks. SplashID Enterprise
and Government Edition allows users to keep passwords, logins, and other
sensitive information in a secure location that is easy to access at
work, home, and while traveling.
"Any organization with applications or services that are accessed
by passwords needs an easy way for employees to create secure passwords,
change them frequently and not forget them or expose them to thieves
and hackers," said Morgan Slain, CEO of SplashData. "With
SplashID Enterprise and Government Edition, each employee has a personal
encrypted data vault that they can access anytime, anywhere."
SplashID Enterprise and Government Edition is now available on a site
license basis or per-seat basis with pricing dependent on the size of
the deployment. Smaller organizations can also purchase SplashID
via five and ten license packages, priced at $129.95 and $219.95 respectively. More
