FourSure From LiveEnsure Gives Users More Security and Control

May 14, 2015

The smart mobile devices we use today are integrated into virtually everything we do in our increasingly connected world. Whether it is individual consumers or multinational enterprises, mobile has become the must-have technology to bring everything together. With a device in the palm of our hands we can now work, socialize, bank, shop and entertain ourselves. While many of the benefits this provides are undeniable, there is one issue that is increasing in traction as the digital threat landscape continues to escalate: security. A real-time user authentication company, LiveEnsure, is looking to improve mobile privacy and security with FourSure, a peer-to-peer trust app.

Designed solely as a pure mobile application, FourSure will give end-users the ability to secure any link, file, message, tweet, post, share or content while at the same time engaging in private, off-grid peer-to-peer communication without local or cloud storage, history or archive. In addition to protecting privacy, it provides authentication features that identifies each user to ensure they are who they say they are.

The company has a patented authentication technology with a global cloud infrastructure to leverage social and communication networks, identities and assets to bring together a comprehensive privacy and authentication platform. FourSure gives users multiple options as to how they can interact with their peers while they are on their mobile device. Using authentication factors such as devices, wearables, location, behavior and shared knowledge, and even TouchID on a peer-to-peer basis, they can set different parameters as to who, how, where and when shares, links, payments, files and chats can be accessed.

“We created FourSure to simplify and secure even the most basic functions we all perform online on mobile devices, and have done so with trust, privacy and control built into its core DNA,” said Christian Hessler, founder and CEO of LiveEnsure.

Powered by LiveEnsure authentication technology, the app uses a proven platform that lets users on mobile devices secure existing SSOs, social networks, friends, fans, cloud storage and online identities. As the CEO went on to say, “FourSure adds the power to enforce peer-to-peer authentication on a one-to-one, one-to-many or many-to-many level from within apps, shares, posts and chats. We’re giving users the power to simply trust one another.”

If there is one constant in the world of hackers, it is their tenacity to find a way to breach a system. One way or another, they always seem to find a weakness. As more devices become smarter, multiple factor authentications will make it much more difficult to breach our computing devices, including mobile technology. The FourSure app is a step toward the day we won’t have to worry about security, at least not as much.

Currently in beta, FourSure will be available globally in June.
