Sandicor Integrates Next Generation of Intelligence-Driven Authentication into San Diego MLS
San Diego, CA (Marketwire) December 7, 2010 –Sandicor, San Diego County’s regional multiple listing service of San Diego real estate and San Diego homes for sale, is implementing the next generation of intelligence-driven authentication, Scout for SAFEMLS® by Clareity Security, into their San Diego MLS.
Designed to improve cost, convenience and security, Scout for SAFEMLS® is a SaaS (software as a service) solution for monitoring and reporting on account sharing by users of MLS systems. Powered with the information provided by Scout for SAFEMLS®, a company can remedy procedures regarding authentication in order to better protect its systems.
Using Scout for SAFEMLS®, risk-based authentication workflows are quickly integrated with MLS systems and other web applications to protect sensitive and valuable information, and enable organizations to meet privacy regulations and data protection parameters, as well as implement data usage terms and support revenue retention. Powered by patent-pending keystroke dynamics, SAFEMLS® is unrivaled in its ability to accurately and transparently identify users, and detect account sharing, account takeover and differences between individual users that is not possible with traditional device or IP tracking.
What does this mean for users of the San Diego MLS? “This state-of-the-art security system keeps sensitive data in our MLS, as well as agent and broker information, safer from unauthorized access in a more convenient and cost-effective manner,” said Jeremy Crawford, Chief Information Officer for Sandicor. “We chose Scout for SAFEMLS® due to the flexibility it offers in providing the right level of security for our MLS, while still taking into the consideration the user experience and convenience of our members. San Diego area brokers and agents will now be able to retire their hardware based two-factor authentication tokens in favor of the improved sign-on technology.”
Scout for SAFEMLS® will be included with Sandicor’s currently implemented single-sign-on (SSO) systems where Sandicor is the official identity provider, allowing agents and brokers to use their same set of login credentials that they use day in and day out for the MLS systems with industry-related third-party products.
