MaidSafe announces Authenticator Release of SAFE Network

MaidSafe announced its Authenticator Release of SAFE Network.

This Alpha 2 release contains a new mechanism for access control that combines mobile platform support, as well as updated demonstration apps.

The developer of the world’s first and only autonomous data network highlights its commitment to making the security of data its paramount concern from the outset.

The Authenticator provides network access, enforced by the network automating the protection of data.

Bundled with SAFE Browser, it supports Windows, OSX and Linux, and incorporates support for Android, with iOS support.

David Irvine, founder and CEO at MaidSafe, said: “We’re delighted to announce the next milestone for the SAFE Network, which has required a methodical and rigorous approach at all times to ensure we are protecting data from the outset.

“We have made a huge investment in time and resources to get to this point, which we believe has given us a unique technical advantage.

“The SAFE Network is based on over 11 years R&D, 20 granted patents and 12 pending and 19 test networks. We’re confident, that unlike the blockchain alternatives, our network is the first and only autonomous one that can protect data.”

MaidSafe will also provide mobile developers with the tools and documentation to start developing SAFE mobile apps in the coming months.
