Cyber Security Startup Myki Pushes Enterprise Offering Out Of Beta As Consumer User Base Triples

Published on:

Myki, the Cyber Security startup that allows users to securely manage their passwords away from the Cloud, announced today on the TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin stage, the launch of the “Myki for Teams” out of private beta.

Concurrently, the consumer version “The Myki Password Manager & Authenticator” has reached 150,000 global users after a 6 month period of organic growth. Starting today, using the “Myki Portal for Teams,” company administrators can sign up and add their team members to the Myki portal to manage their team’s passwords and access to company-owned accounts in real time.

The enterprise service is free for the first 5 users, after which a monthly subscription of 4.25€ per user per month is charged. The consumer version remains free. For TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin, Myki has provided a Promo Code: “MYKITC17” to give conference attendees not 5, but 10 users free access to the Myki Portal for life.

“Myki for Teams” allows the company administrator to manage how, when, and where their teams access their online accounts. A user cannot gain access to a service without the admin’s consent. Enterprise features include:

  • Secure password generator (For team member accounts)
  • Group management for sales, marketing, tech teams
  • Create vaults to group accounts together and inherit rules
  • Real-time view of logins on a map
  • Account sharing (Without sharing the password)
  • Revoke user access (Click on the button provisioning and deprovisioning)
  • Location-based access control
  • Time-based access control
  • IP-based access control

Myki provides the convenience of the cloud without the associated risks by distributing sensitive information across user’s smartphones in a decentralized manner. Passwords are not saved in the cloud, Myki servers, nor any other place that could be a soft target for security attacks. It relies on point to point military grade encryption to securely push passwords from phone to computer.

Myki CEO and Co-Founder Antoine Jebara said: “We think the true future of failproof password security lies outside the Cloud and we are really happy to roll out Myki for Teams today. After months of testing, we’ve seen the difference that a seamless solution can provide to businesses. Myki is accelerating the evolution of password and identity authentication by providing management teams full visibility and control over their team’s digital workspace and each team members account.“

Also at TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin today, and in response to high demand from its users, Myki announced the public beta launch of a new feature, “Myki for Crypto Keys,” which allows users to securely store, manage and backup private keys offline. In 2016, Myki launched its private beta offering of “Myki for Teams” during TechCrunch Disrupt Battlefield San Francisco making it the the first MENA-based company to compete on the TechCrunch stage.

According to Myki, the cyber security market is growing 11% year on year and set to reach 195€ trillion ($232 trillion) by 2022.

The 2016 Cybercrime Report from Cyber Security Ventures predicts cybercrime will cost the world in excess of 5€ trillion annually by 2021, making it more profitable than the global trade of all major illegal drugs combined. Global spending on Cyber Security products and services are predicted to exceed 853€ million ($1 trillion) over the next five years, from 2017 to 2021.

Myki Co-Founder and COO Priscilla Elora Sharuk said: “We want to eliminate the password pain for both individuals and businesses and today’s announcement is an additional step in that direction. We designed Myki to be a tech savvy product that is made to be used by the non-tech savvy. Now more than ever, people and companies are able to secure their proprietary data in a seamless and affordable manner. We are firm believers that data management and protection is not a privilege, it is a right!”
