SlickLogin Security Startup, has been acquired by Google.
Security startup SlickLogin has been acquired by Google, after only officially forming no less then two months ago.
“Today we`re announcing that the SlickLogin team is joining Google, a company that shares our core beliefs that logging in should be easy instead of frustrating, and authentication should be effective without getting in the way,” SlickLogin’s three founders, Or Zelig, Eran Galili and Ori Kabeli said in a blogpost of the compay’s website Sunday and listing its contact email as “Press@google.com.”
During the mean time, Google has been keeping hush on the amount of money used to acquire SlickLogin, and they have not made any type of announcement in recent time.
The development for the product had begun sometime during the late August, Introduced during the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco during September. The company was officially established sometime in December.
The technology employed by SlickLogin is to secure websites, like banks for example, to validate the person who is currently logging in to the system. SlickLogin has a smooth-running authorization process that has the website play a uniquely generated, muffled sound through the entry’s computer speakers. To identify and pick up the sound, a user must have a provided application on their smart phones running, so it can send the confirmation signal back and authorize the user.
