While reading about PINoptic Security it is obvious they offer security solutions for BlackBerry users with a simple yet High-Tech approach. Special thanks to Paul from PINoptic for providing the below information and screen shots.
We developed PINoptic due to the weakness in four digit pins and the
pointless nature of putting a four digit lock on a phone that anyone
observing would be able to see the pin on one observation.
Using multiple symbols on a standard numerical keypad improves the security considerably, with a four symbol password taking up to 90 observations before detection. Using the patented approach of a One Time Password (OTP) authentication on a mobile handset you can now secure your phone and ensure it stays secure. With Smartphone becoming more like desktops on each generation it’s amazing the lack of basic protection to the rich source of data held on Smartphones, you wouldn’t leave a desktop/laptop without a password would you?
The use of symbols to generate a memorable password, such as “Cup of coffee at 8 before work” (CUP – COFFEE – 8 – HOUSE) provides a simple cognitive language neutral means of remembering complex passwords. No need for characters or numbers or tricky typing skills on tiny keypads, with the Storm touchscreen its easy.
PINoptic supports the BlackBerry Enterprise Server enabling distribution and control within a corporate environment and we believe will help reduce the support costs of users forgetting their passwords.
