RESTON, VA -- A new security solution from the Intercede Group delivers password- and token-free access to cloud services from mobile applications. Intercede said its RapID solution incorporates PKI-based authentication and encryption to provide "military-grade" security for business and consumer applications. It is designed to establish trusted relationships between end users and service providers using applications that involve sensitive data like transactions.

"RapID kills the need for passwords, the authentication method responsible for more than half of all security breaches," said Intercede chief executive Richard Parris. "It incorporates standards-based strong encryption and it makes application services easier to access. That combination is a compelling proposition to build the trusted relationships between users and service providers that are essential in a digital economy."

RapID is a cloud-based solution that can be easily integrated within new or existing mobile applications. Once incorporated, the user is guided through an initial identification and verification by the service provider and a unique digital credential is issued to the smartphone in question.

After that initial enrollment, users simply access the application by PIN or fingerprint scan. No other user can access the relevant application account without being in possession of both the correct device and the relevant PIN or fingerprint.

RapID is available for iOS and Android based phones and tablets and can be scaled to service millions of devices.
