I covered the first Finovate event organized by Jim Bruene back in October 2007 (in New York City). The event was such a success (it sold out in only 6 weeks) that Jim decided to organize two more Finovate events in 2008: FinovateStartup & Finovate 08.
I was delighted when Jim invited me to be the official live blogger on NetBanker at FinovateStartup in San Francisco. Before the event, I plan to blog about most of the 40 startups which will demo their products. My goal is to give you a brief overview of those innovative startups.
Authentium, innovative solutions for a “secure internet”
I met John Sharp, Authentium’s co-Founder and Chairman, several times in London. John first contacted me via Linkedin.
I shot a video interview with John and talked about topics such online security, identity theft, and two-factor-authentication.
Authentium recently rebranded its VirtualATM product as SafeCentral, allegedly the first “secure internet”.
According to John, “Using SafeCentral is like going into war already “armored-up” – using the other solutions is like going into battle, being wounded, and getting hauled off to hospital – and then finding out, as you fight for your life, that your health insurance is paid up.”
To stay up-to-date on online fraud, online security, viruses & malware apps, I invite you to subrscibe to the Authentium blogs.
