For Immediate Release

Vancouver, BC — July 6, 2016 — Wavefront, Canada’s top Wireless Business Accelerator and FusionPipe Software Solutions Inc. (“FusionPipe”), a Vancouver-based leader in providing world-class authentication & data security solutions for Enterprises, today announced that Wavefront has invested in QuikIDTM application licenses to be used by its internal employees to allow for convenient secure authentication to their workstations and devices.

QuikIDTM, FusionPipe’s flagship application, was designed to enhance end-user experience and improve ease-of-use without compromising security. The patented application makes having to manually type in passwords a thing of the past. QuikIDTM uses Bluetooth® Low Energy to securely communicate with paired devices to automatically lock/unlock PC’s, laptops, Tablets and Thin Clients based on proximity. An optional PIN code offers additional security if mandated by the company’s IT Department.

Says Alan Swain, Wavefront’s Vice President Technology & Operations: “Here at Wavefront, we are keenly interested and aware of digital ID, privacy by design and 2-factor authentication schemes like OpenID Connect and Universal Second Factor. These, along with block chain technologies, are some of the key elements that are converging to help secure the industrial Internet of Things. When presented with the opportunity to purchase QuikIDTM, which is based on FIDO U2F, I was enthusiastic, as it not only enables secure 2-factor convenient securing of our workstations, but allows our staff to directly use the technology of one of our resident Wavefront companies. Additionally, we have an open environment and at any point in time 30 companies and 170+ active seats. Using QuikIDTM means we are able to lead by example and demonstrate best practices in automatic work station lock down when the authorized user walks away.”

“The decision by Wavefront to purchase QuikIDTM didn’t come as a complete surprise to us”, says David Snell, CEO & Chairman of FusionPipe. Wavefront has been part of our 2015 Beta Testers Program since last year and they have helped us to accelerate improvements to our application by providing us with invaluable user feedback and suggestions. Their expert support during the development and QA of this cutting-edge authentication solution has been instrumental to where our product is today at commercial release and we are very excited to see them roll out FusionPipe’s technology to the rest of their staff.”
