Vierfire Software Ltd was founded by a group
of technologists who saw how vulnerable and
expensive existing data protection measures can be.
Conventional token generators provide a good level
of secure authentication, but they come at a cost.
We wanted to find a way to side-step the expense
and hassle of having a separate piece of hardware,
without compromising on security.
We saw that it was possible to provide secure
identification without the hassle factor if
we made use of the smart mobile devices that
people use every day. A smartphone is a great
tool for providing personalised validation
as part of a two-factor authentication process.
Our users are already carrying this piece of
hardware around, and know how to download
and use an app. We are keeping on top of
social trends in technology use, aligning
user behaviour with security best practice.
The Vierfire team includes successful electronics
and software entrepreneurs, developers, business
angels, and specialists in intellectual property and
