EDISON, NJ--(Marketwire - Aug 17, 2011) - Boston-based Research 2.0 has initiated coverage of StrikeForce Technologies (OTCQB: SFOR) (PINKSHEETS: SFOR) and published its initial report. The report is available at http://www.research2zero.com/openresearch/SFOR08162011.pdf and has been distributed through institutional platforms including FactSet, CapitalIQ and Thomson Reuters. Research 2.0 is pioneering a new "open professional" model of advisory services and investor positioning which gives companies a direct path to generating long-term investment interest and having quality independent institutional research coverage. Research 2.0 makes their work broadly available to all potential investors on the Internet and in open social and professional online networks.

"Research 2.0's coverage of our company is helping us to demonstrate our strengths to the marketplace, particularly as new cyber security threats emerge that validate our investments in forward-looking security technologies," said Mark Kay, CEO for StrikeForce Technologies.

StrikeForce is receiving increased global recognition for the strength of its unique Out-of-Band authentication and transaction verification technology as well as its anti-keylogging, keystroke encryption software.

"Security risks and their impact have been increasing exponentially in the past year and existing solutions like antivirus software, firewalls intrusion detection, and even token-based authentication are failing to do the job. StrikeForce Technologies is an excellent example of an emerging technology provider that has taken the time to develop advanced solutions that are now ready for adoption. The company will benefit from both rapid adoption of their solutions and increased awareness and visibility. These are the types of investments our clients are looking for," says Kris Tuttle, CEO for Research 2.0.
