Rapattoni Teams With RSA to Deploy Adaptive Authentication and Secure Homeowner Information

RSA® Adaptive Authentication from EMC’s Security Division Integrated with Rapattoni’s Secure Logon to Provide Security and Convenience to MLS Associations

SIMI VALLEY, CA and BEDFORD, MA, March 30, 2009 - 

Rapattoni Corporation and RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC) today announced the integration of the RSA® Adaptive Authentication platform into Rapattoni’s Secure Logon to help Multiple Listing Services (MLS) and real estate associations to help establish – with certainty – the identity of a person accessing homeowner data online.

Rapattoni’s Secure Logon is delivered via Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to one hundred MLS and real estate associations representing approximately 250,000 real estate professionals who all share information about properties for sale. Rapattoni customers now have the choice to use either RSA Adaptive Authentication or RSA SecurID® hardware tokens – available through Rapattoni since 2006 – based on factors of risk, cost and convenience. Rapattoni will include the RSA Adaptive Authentication deployment as part of each new customer installation at no additional charge, and its existing customers will be eligible to implement RSA Adaptive Authentication upon contract renewal starting in Q2 2009.

"RSA's strong reputation and brand has clearly been a beneficial alignment for our company as it has enhanced customer confidence and accelerated our business," said Tim P. Johnson, Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Business Development, Rapattoni Corporation. "Personally identifiable information such as sensitive homeowner information is sometimes unintentionally compromised by REALTORS® and RSA Adaptive Authentication successfully helps address this security issue."

RSA Adaptive Authentication is an intelligent risk-based authentication and fraud detection platform that is currently used by more than 8,000 organizations to protect more than 225 million online identities. RSA Adaptive Authentication is designed to provide risk indicators powered by the RSA® Risk Engine, such as device identification, geo-location, behavioral profiling, and RSA eFraudNetworkSM matching. Using a risk score, RSA Adaptive Authentication is engineered to automatically invoke additional strong authentication methods in a transparent manner for high-risk activities and/or for policies in violation of the customer’s risk management strategy.

"We extended our strategic partnership with RSA because of its leadership in online fraud protection and the ubiquity of their successfully deployed risk-based authentication solutions throughout the financial services, manufacturing, pharmaceutical and healthcare industries," said Nick Rapattoni, President, Rapattoni Corporation. "In fact, the integration of RSA Adaptive Authentication into our MLS solution has been so successful that we now aim to integrate it within our SaaS-based customer relationship management application."

"We teamed up with Rapattoni three years ago to help grow its business and build a more secure information infrastructure," said Tom Corn, Vice President of Product Marketing at RSA, The Security Division of EMC. "Using adaptive authentication for convenient and secure access to networks is critical when being diligent about protecting identities and preventing breaches of sensitive information."
