StrikeForce Increases Clients and Revenues as Financial Institutions Respond to Increased Likelihood of Cyber Attack

StrikeForce Will Be Announcing Closing Deals With Financial and Other Enterprises Across the Globe in Coming Weeks

EDISON, NJ--(Marketwire - Oct 31, 2011) - StrikeForce Technologies' (OTCBB: SFOR) comments on reports that the finance and banking sector is under such sustained and sophisticated cyber attacks that the country's most secretive military spy agency -- the National Security Agency (NSA) -- has been providing assistance to the country's financial and banking institutions helping them accelerate their implementation of programs bolstering defenses against a massive cyber attack that, it is feared, could cripple not only the banking institutions, but debilitate the entire financial infrastructure.1 StrikeForce Technologies' ProtectID® and GuardedID® are the only patented and patent pending protected products that provide the Internet security protocols recommended by Federal regulators to bolster against such attacks.

"StrikeForce Technologies' patented ProtectID 'Out-of-Band' Two-Factor Authentication software inaugurates a shift in security protocols that will play a big role in preventing these attacks. The market is now pointing to the need for solutions that prevent identity theft, which StrikeForce had the wherewithal to design and develop years ago knowing it was ahead of its time. A number of our major deals have been in the pipeline for over six months and are now closing. This includes a number of international unsolicited calls requesting quotes and orders for both of our products. We are excited that our early patented proprietary inventions are beginning to pay off," said Mark L. Kay StrikeForce's CEO.

Emphasizing the increase in relevance of 'Out-of-Band' authentication protocols, a recent article in Banking Technology News2 noted

"according to a Novarica study, 71% of Banks say They Have Insufficient Resources to Detect Fraud' and 47% plan to deploy Out-of-Band authentication in the next 12 months"

"Our ProtectID product has been licensed and implemented by international banks, by national financial lending and processing institutions, and is the key technology recommended by top online security analysts, as these institutions seek to meet the updated January 2012 FFIEC federal regulatory deadline for finance institutions to install enhanced authentication protocols. Current clients using our 'Out-of-Band' Authentication platform (ProtectID) include a Fortune 100 Wall Street investment firm, a Fortune 500 financial lending firm, and include other global enterprises and financial firms that will be imminently announced."

"We are more than pleased with the results that our sales channel partners are producing. This has resulted in an acceleration of client deals closing, and is leading to increased revenues in 2011 and ongoing for both of our products, ProtectID and GuardedID," says George Waller, StrikeForce's EVP.

"Out-of-Band Authentication is growing in importance within the Internet security discipline. Our patent and our product features, including the capability of either hosted (Cloud) or in-house implementation licenses are winning these contracts," says Mr. Kay, CEO.
