COMPANY: THE LIVEENSURE STORY.
LiveEnsure® began with a simple mission: give the crowd the power to trust the cloud. From early research and development to its latest patented innovations, LiveEnsure® has always pushed the boundaries of mobile security, privacy and trust. Not one to follow the trends, LiveEnsure® challenged the conventions of single-sign-on, simple biometrics and passive factors to innovate the concept of “contextual authentication”. No one is just a password or fingerprint and trust is not just an isolated event. All security has context and LiveEnsure® has patented the process of interactive contextual authentication around the world.
Founded in Palo Alto in 2014 as an innovative R&D startup targeting authentication, identity, privacy and other related technologies., we soon released our namesake product at RSA in the US on iOS and Android. Shortly thereafter, LiveEnsure® was launched globally at RSA Singapore to great acclaim. Since then we have grown to achieve revenues and millions of authentications in over 80 countries with zero hacks. We received our first patent in 2015 and our second patent in 2017. In addition, we were awarded a CRADA with Sandia National Labs to develop security for the government and related industries. The balance of our growing IP portfolio is pending in both the US and abroad, with recent grants in the EU. We have worked with some of the best companies in the world, such as Samsung, HP, Microsoft, Lloyds, AON, MunichRE, Facebook, Pebble and Intel. We’d love to work with you.
LiveEnsure® has garnered numerous awards at CES, TechCrunch, CTIA Wireless and received significant media coverage. Over the past 2 years, our engineering team has expanded research into payments, social media, blockchain and artificial intelligence. As a result, LiveEnsure® 3.0 will be launched soon with new biometric factors, native mobile libraries and several innovations that are currently under wraps. FourSure®, our patented peer-to-peer authentication technology, will also release in beta in the coming year with an exciting portfolio of early adopters. LiveEnsure® is a company and a technology whose time has come. The world is a dangerous digital landscape with organized hacks and breaches occurring daily. Existing technology is too expensive, too cumbersome, too invasive or simply not up the task of scaling to meet the privacy, security and authenticity needs of today’s mobile crowd. LiveEnsure® is ready.
