Montreal-based startup releases unique IT security solution
MONTREAL, Oct. 22 /CNW Telbec/ - Viion announced today the launch of
Sentinel Sign-Off(TM) 1.0, an innovative solution for the IT security market.
Sentinel Sign-Off automatically locks a computer following the departure of a
user, eliminating a security vulnerability that results when users fail to
manually log-out of computer sessions prior to their departure. Viion's
commercial release of the Sentinel Sign-Off solution follows successful
in-field beta testing.
Viion's Sentinel Sign-Off solution is typically deployed in IT
environments employing single sign-on (SSO) technologies as well as
environments where multiple users have access to a computer workstation - for
example, health-care, enterprise and financial markets.
"Sentinel Sign-Off uses a combination of computer vision technologies to
identify and detect the presence of a computer user. "This is the first time
that an intelligent sensing approach has been used to address the walk-away
security issue." states Dr. Michael Kelly, President and founder of Viion.
"This is a solution that IT security professionals need to be aware of as it
can significantly improve the security of their organisation's end-point
Viion has filed for patent protection covering the active presence and
identification technology that powers the Sentinel suite of products.
