02.07.2013 | QFX Software Releases KeyScrambler 3.0.
QFX Software Releases KeyScrambler 3.0. First to Protect Windows 8 “Metro” Apps. KeyScrambler Personal Expands to Protect 29 Browsers.
Ormond Beach, FL February 7, 2013 --
QFX Software Corporation today announced the release of KeyScrambler 3.0, calling it “a major milestone” in the popular security program's seven-year history. With newly added Windows 8 support, KeyScrambler Professional and Premium become the first keystroke encryption software to provide real-time anti-keylogging protection for Windows Store “Metro” Apps.
KeyScrambler Personal, the company's freeware with over one million users worldwide, also receives a major expansion in capability. Previously supporting Internet Explorer and Firefox, it now protects user inputs in 29 web browsers, including the fast-growing Google Chrome.
KeyScrambler 3.0 has undergone a thorough reengineering. Performance and compatibility are improved. Numerous optimizations result in an even more fluid user experience and even lower use of resource. The user interface is more space-efficient and the unique, well-liked real-time display of encrypted keystrokes more compact.
“Adding support for Windows 8 Metro Apps was a major engineering challenge,” says Qian Z. Wang, CEO of QFX Software. “Now we are the first keystroke-encryption program to protect them. I'm excited that we've also greatly expanded KeyScrambler Personal to support over two dozen browsers, including Google Chrome, which had been the most frequently requested app. I believe this is the best version of KeyScrambler we've made yet. I can't wait for our users to see everything we've done in 3.0.”
All three upgraded KeyScrambler editions, Personal, Professional and Premium, are immediately available at the company's website: http://www.qfxsoftware.com. All current users of KeyScrambler are eligible to upgrade to 3.0 free of charge.
Since its initial launch in August 2006, KeyScrambler has become the anti-keylogging leader with its trail-blazing method, smart engineering, state-of-the-art encryption algorithms, and reassuring user interface. KeyScrambler encrypts the user's keystrokes real-time at the keyboard driver level, deep in the Windows operating system, and decrypts them in the destination application, so keyloggers can steal only scrambled, indecipherable keys. The effectiveness of KeyScrambler has been noted over the years by top security experts, major media and download sites, bloggers and users in the U.S., U.K., Germany, France, Canada, Australia and many other countries.
A small download of under 2 MB, KeyScrambler takes only a few minutes to install and requires little user effort. The unobtrusive overlay window on the screen lets users see encryption in real time so they always know when KeyScrambler is working to protect their valuable data.

10.12.2009 | QFX Software Releases KeyScrambler 2.6.0
QFX Software Releases KeyScrambler 2.6.0, the Only Keystroke Encryption Software that Protects Asian Languages Against Keylogging

Ormond Beach, FL (PRWEB) October 12, 2009 --
QFX Software Corporation announced today the release of KeyScrambler 2.6.0, an upgrade with major improvements in KeyScrambler's appearance and range.

A new logo, new interface and new tray icon give the popular anti-keylogging program more visual appeal. The newly added support in the paid editions for ideographic languages--Japanese, Chinese and Korean--puts KeyScrambler in a category of its own: the only keystroke encryption program in the world that protects Asian language inputs against keyloggers. All three upgraded KeyScramblers, Personal, Professional and Premium, are immediately available at the company's website: http://www.qfxsoftware.com.

According to a security report published by Symantec in April this year, keyloggers posed the third most prevalent threat to confidential information in 2008, with 75 percent of malicious code infections having the keylogging capability.

"Keylogging is a world-wide problem, and there are over 450 million Chinese, Japanese and Korean internet users today. We're excited that we can now offer these users the same proven protection against keylogging that our customers from other parts of the world have been enjoying," says Qian Z. Wang, CEO of QFX Software. "Due to the complexity of their input systems, the Asian languages presented unique challenges for keystroke encryption. We came up with a number of innovative solutions for these problems and the result is a significant advancement to the state of the art of keystroke encryption technology."

KeyScrambler encrypts users' keystrokes deep in the kernel and decrypts them at the destination application, giving keyloggers only random keys - "scrambled" and indecipherable - to record. KeyScrambler defeats known and unknown keyloggers and works even on security compromised computers.

A small download of 1.2 MB, KeyScrambler takes only a few minutes to install and requires no effort from users. The unobtrusive interface lets users see encryption live and gives them peace of mind.

About the Three KeyScrambler Editions:
KeyScrambler Personal, a browser add-on, encrypts users' keystrokes in Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Flock. It protects users' credentials on all websites, online banking logins, webmail, Java, Flash, Browser Dialogs, browser master passwords, and much more. KeyScrambler Personal has been named by PC World as one of the "15 Great, Free Privacy Downloads" and remains absolutely free for all users.

The paid editions, KeyScrambler Professional and KeyScrambler Premium, protect user inputs in many more browsers and applications. KeyScrambler Premium offers the most comprehensive protection and is particularly useful in the workplace. By encrypting users' login credentials in Windows workstation, Active Directory Domain, and Windows Vista's User Account Control prompts (UAC), KeyScrambler Premium not only helps prevent cyber criminals from gaining access to an enterprise's critical systems but also reduces risks that a single breached computer will allow an intruder to compromise other workstations and the company network.

QFX Software Corporation today released a new upgrade for KeyScrambler®, adding three most popular MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) games, World of Warcraft, Runescape, EVE-Online, and the most popular game distribution platform, Steam, to the long list of apps supported by its paid editions, KeyScrambler Professional and KeyScrambler Premium.

"As more and more users understand how KeyScrambler works, more are asking for KeyScrambler to protect their favorite apps," says Qian Z. Wang, CEO of QFX Software. "A combined 30 million people are active players of WoW, Runescape, EVE-Online, or games on Steam so we’ve had lots of requests for KeyScrambler support. One of the reasons that KeyScrambler appeals to our users is that it works with other security programs and authentication methods like tokens and smart cards. The users appreciate that extra cushion of security that no other anti-keylogging software is able to give them."

KeyScrambler encrypts users’ keystrokes deep in the kernel and decrypts them at the destination application, giving keyloggers only random keys - scrambled and indecipherable to record. KeyScrambler defeats keyloggers known and unknown, and works even on security compromised computers.

A small download of 1.2 MB, KeyScrambler takes only a few minutes to install and requires no learning or effort from users. The unobtrusive interface lets users see encryption live and gives them peace of mind.

KeyScrambler Premium is designed for enterprises, to enhance workplace information security. It supports over 100 apps, including over 40 business-oriented applications. KeyScrambler Premium protects users’ login credentials in Windows workstation, Active Directory Domain, and Windows Vista’s User Account Control prompts (UAC), a feature that helps prevent cyber criminals from gaining access to an enterprise’s critical systems and also reduces risks that a single breached computer will allow an intruder to compromise other workstations and the company network. Encrypting users’ keystrokes in highly sensitive networking and encryption applications and finance, tax, and accounting programs, KeyScrambler Premium ensures that vital corporate information is shielded from existing and future keylogging threats. Integrating KeyScrambler into an enterprise requires no change to the existing infrastructure. And deployment is as simple for multiple computers as for a single one.

Prices are unchanged for KeyScrambler Professional and KeyScrambler Premium, at $29.99 and $44.99 respectively, with free upgrades and support for up to two years, and with discounts for multiple licenses.

KeyScrambler Personal, a browser add-on, remains absolutely free for all users. Supporting Internet Explore, Firefox, and Flock, KeyScrambler Personal encrypts everything the user types on a website and protects user credentials, online banking logins, and credit cards; messages in Yahoo mail, hotmail, and gmail; and private info in Java, Flash, Browser Dialogs, and browser master passwords.

11.19.2008 | QFX Software Releases KeyScrambler 2.3; the World’s Best Anti-Keylogging Solution Now Protects Windows Credentials
QFX Software Releases KeyScrambler 2.3
The World’s Best Anti-Keylogging Solution Now Protects Windows Credentials

Ormond Beach, FL, November 17, 2008 –

QFX Software Corporation today released KeyScrambler Premium 2.3, which adds new features for safeguarding confidential information from keyloggers at the workplace. The upgraded version is immediately available at the company’s website.

The major enhancement of KeyScrambler Premium 2.3 is the protection of users’ login credentials in Windows workstation, Active Directory Domain, and Windows Vista’s User Account Control prompts (UAC). The new feature helps prevent cyber criminals from gaining access to critical systems. It also reduces risks that a single breached computer will allow an intruder to compromise other workstations and the company network.

"One of the common ways for hackers to gain access to confidential and valuable business information is to compromise a less critical, less guarded workstation and install a keylogger to capture credentials that will enable them to access more heavily secured parts of the business infrastructure," says Qian Z. Wang, CEO of QFX Software. "KeyScrambler Premium 2.3 helps defeat this attack vector and prevent a small breach from turning into a costly and embarrassing security event.”

KeyScrambler Premium 2.3 covers more than 100 applications in a wide array of categories, from business-oriented finance, tax, accounting, and office programs to more general applications such as popular browsers, email and IM/VoIP clients, and password managers.

KeyScrambler’s design makes it capable of defeating keyloggers both known and unknown. KeyScrambler encrypts users’ keystrokes at the keyboard driver level in the kernel and decrypts the keystrokes at the destination application, giving keyloggers only random keys - "scrambled" and indecipherable - to record. KeyScrambler is compatible with existing infrastructures and security programs and is therefore as easy for large corporations and organizations to deploy as for small and medium-sized enterprises to install. The unobtrusive interface lets users see KeyScrambler encrypting live and gives them peace of mind. Since its initial launch in August 2006, KeyScrambler has grown a customer base of more than 660,000 active users in 194 countries and territories.

07.22.2008 | KeyScrambler Brings Advanced Anti-Keylogging Protection to Online Poker

KeyScrambler Brings Advanced Anti-Keylogging Protection to Online Poker

Ormond Beach, FL, July 22, 2008–

QFX Software Corporation today released KeyScrambler 2.2, a major upgrade with newly added support for popular online poker games.

Online poker protection is one of the enhancements most frequently requested by KeyScrambler users. Because poker accounts often hold considerable amounts of money, poker players’ identities are frequently subject to online theft by keyloggers, which track users’ typing activity to capture passwords and other private information via malicious software code.

The online poker games newly protected in both KeyScrambler Professional and KeyScrambler Premium are as follows:

Full Tilt Poker, PokerStars, PokerRoom, PartyPoker, UltimateBet Poker, Bodog Poker, Doyle's Room, Microgaming Network, 24h Poker, Carbon Poker, PlayersOnly Poker, Titan Poker, CD Poker, Hollywood Poker, and VC Poker.

Both upgraded versions are immediately available for purchase and download at the company's website:

"Online poker is one of the largest and fastest growing forms of gaming in the world," says Qian Wang, CEO of QFX Software. "Many poker players have more money in their poker accounts than in their checking accounts. Adding protection for online poker games to Pro and Premium is part of our continuing endeavor to provide our users with the best, most comprehensive anti-keylogging protection in the world."

Using advanced keystroke encryption, KeyScrambler defeats both known and unknown keyloggers and works even on computers that are security compromised. KeyScrambler encrypts the user’s keystrokes at the keyboard driver level and decrypts them within the protected applications, leaving keyloggers with entirely indecipherable, encrypted keys to record. KeyScrambler’s much admired user interface lets users see it encrypting live without changing their computing behavior.

A free version, KeyScrambler Personal, protects all parts of select browsers against keyloggers. It encrypts everything a user types into the browser: logins, account numbers, credit card numbers, addresses, phone numbers, email messages, URLs, search terms, popup password dialogs, master passwords and more. Free download is available at the company’s website: www.qfxsoftware.com

About QFX Software Corporation:

QFX Software is a developer of security and financial software based in Ormond Beach, Florida. Known for its innovative KeyScrambler technology, indefatigable product improvement and dedicated customer service, the company currently serves more than 580,000 active KeyScrambler users in 179 countries and territories.

04.07.2008 | QFX Software Releases KeyScrambler 2.0; Leading Anti-Keylogging Software Quadruples Protection

QFX Software Releases KeyScrambler 2.0

Leading Anti-Keylogging Software Quadruples Protection

Ormond Beach, FL, April 7, 2008–

QFX Software Corporation today introduced KeyScrambler® 2.0 with quadrupled anti-keylogging protection.  KeyScrambler 2.0 extends protection to more than 30 popular applications in 6 key categories.  Now also supporting 64-bit editions of Windows, KeyScrambler 2.0 is the world’s most comprehensive and powerful anti-keylogging software program.

The free KeyScrambler Personal now offers the level of anti-keylogging protection previously only available in KeyScrambler Pro.  KeyScrambler Personal 2.0 protects all parts of the browser instead of only web login pages.  It encrypts everything a user types into the browser: logins, account numbers, credit card numbers, addresses, phone numbers, email messages, URLs, search terms, popup password dialogs, master passwords and more.  KeyScrambler Personal 2.0 supports Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Flock and is available immediately at www.qfxsoftware.com as a free download.

"KeyScrambler Personal now protects everything the user does in the browser, whether it’s banking, shopping, taxes, email, gaming, or just plain browsing.  And best of all, it’s absolutely free," said Qian Wang, CEO of QFX Software.  "No other anti-keylogging product offers this level of protection even in their pay versions."

With version 2.0, both KeyScrambler pay versions also make a giant leap in their scope and power of protection.  KeyScrambler Pro 2.0 and KeyScrambler Premium 2.0 now support twelve popular browsers and beyond the browser some of the most widely used email and instant messaging clients.*  KeyScrambler Premium, intended for businesses and power users, further protects a dozen finance/tax, office, and password managing programs such as Quicken, MS Money, MS Office, and RoboForm.* 

Technology & Popularity

The number of keyloggers—malicious software code that tracks typing activity to capture passwords and other private information—increased by 250 percent between January 2004 and May 2006, as reported in a 2007 McAfee study.  Because more sophisticated morphing malware has been developed and used to target individuals, businesses, corporate executives and government financial officials, the traditional perimeter security products are no longer enough.  "If you want to provide a comprehensive set of security capabilities," remarked Stuart McIrvine, IBM Corporate Security Strategy director, "you cannot just provide security around the perimeter—there's a lot more to it than that."

The unique ability of KeyScrambler to defeat both existing and new keyloggers, even on computers that are security compromised, gives users a much needed, reliable layer of defense against information theft.  Whereas the traditional anti-spyware programs typically depend on knowing the signature of an existing keylogger to detect and remove it and often act only after the keyloggers have already stolen the user’s information, KeyScrambler works in an ingeniously different way: It encrypts the user’s keystrokes at the kernel driver level and decrypts them within the protected applications, so keyloggers are left with entirely indecipherable, encrypted keys to record.

KeyScrambler’s elegant user interface lets users see it encrypting live without changing their computing behavior.  Compatible with existing infrastructures and security programs, KeyScrambler is easy to deploy for large corporations and organizations and can also serve as a powerful complement to authentication methods such as tokens and smart cards.

Since its initial launch in August 2006, KeyScrambler has established itself as the leader in the anti-keylogging software market.  Currently KeyScrambler has more than 580,000 active users in 177 countries and territories and has been recommended and praised by security experts, bloggers and users in trade magazines, online media, download sites, blogger forums, and email correspondence.

Pricing & Availability

All three KeyScrambler 2.0 products can be downloaded or purchased at the company's website: www.qfxsoftware.com without increase in pricing.  Existing users will receive notice of free upgrades in the program.

"We are constantly inspired by our users’ enthusiasm for our products so it’s only natural that we want to keep innovating," said Mr. Wang.  "We strive to make sure that all our users will continue to have the best protection in the world against keyloggers."

*Both KeyScrambler Pro and Premium now protect the following applications:

- Browsers: IE, Firefox, Flock, Opera, Safari, Maxthon, AOL Explorer, MSN Explorer, Seamonkey, Avant, K-meleon, and Netscape;
- Email: Thunderbird, Outlook, Windows Mail, and Outlook Express;
- IM/VoIP: Yahoo! Messenger, AIM, AIM Pro, Live(MSN) Messenger, and Pidgin.

*KeyScrambler Premium protects three more categories:

- Finance/Tax: Quicken, MS Money, TurboTax, TaxCut, and TaxAct;
- Office: MS Office, OpenOffice, and StarOffice;
- Password Managers: RoboForm, Password Safe, and Handy Safe.

QFX Software Corporation, a developer of security and finance software based in Ormond Beach, Florida, believes in user empowerment.  With its innovative KeyScrambler technology, indefatigable product improvement and dedicated customer service, QFX Software has changed the anti-keylogging landscape and helped make the computing experiences better and safer for users all over the world.

08.06.2007 | Popular Anti-Keylogging Software Now Also Protects Outlook and Microsoft Office

Popular Anti-Keylogging Software Now Also Protects Outlook and Microsoft Office

Ormond Beach, FL, August 6, 2007–

QFX Software Corporation is pleased to announce the release of a new product in the popular KeyScrambler® series, KeyScrambler Premium, which extends protection against keyloggers beyond the browser to Outlook and Microsoft Office.

"We can’t overstress the importance of having effective tools in the war against online theft," says Qian Wang, CEO and founder of QFX Software, referring to the fact that the number of keyloggers—malicious software code that tracks typing activity to capture passwords and other private information—has increased by 250 percent between January 2004 and May 2006, as reported in a recent McAfee study.  "The latest trend is that more sophisticated morphing malware has been developed and used to target businesses, corporate executives, government financial officials, and even their relatives," Mr. Wang observes.  "KeyScrambler Premium is our endeavor to protect more businesses from keyloggers."

KeyScrambler Premium protects all parts of the browser: URLs, search terms, popup password dialogs, and master passwords. It encrypts everything a user types into a web page—logins, account numbers, credit card numbers, addresses and phone numbers, and email messages. It also protects the user input beyond the browser in Outlook—the most widely used business email program—and in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.  It safeguards online input without requiring any change in the user's computing behavior or to a company’s existing infrastructure.

KeyScrambler technology works against both known and unknown keyloggers.  Traditional anti-spyware and anti-virus programs typically depend on knowing the signature of an existing keylogger in order to detect and remove it, so they often act only after the keyloggers have already stolen the users’ information.  KeyScrambler works in a radically different way: it encrypts the user’s keystrokes at the kernel driver level, before keyloggers can record them, and decrypts them within the browser itself, giving keyloggers only indecipherable, encrypted keys to record.

Planning to reach more businesses with the new product, QFX Software has begun to forge global affiliate relationships.  It is currently working with the Toronto-based Informatica Security Corporation for corporate sales in Canada.  A leader in information security management, Informatica is actively encouraging corporate management in the financial/banking, healthcare and services sectors to supplement their existing anti-malware strategy with the KeyScrambler solution.

Besides KeyScrambler Premium, the KeyScrambler series includes KeyScrambler Professional, which protects all parts of the browser against keyloggers, and KeyScrambler Personal, which protects users’ login information against keyloggers on all websites and is absolutely free.  All three products can be downloaded or purchased from the company's website: http://www.qfxsoftware.com

About QFX Software Corporation:

A developer of security and financial software based in Ormond Beach, Florida, QFX Software Corporation believes in user empowerment.  The KeyScrambler series, latest of the company’s innovations, has won approval from security experts and users alike and has hundreds of thousands of users from over 2,550 cities in 140 countries and counting.

New Software Released in War on Keyloggers

Ormond Beach, Florida, August 16, 2006--

Amid the recent slew of news of identity thieves worming into our computers with spyware and malware to copy our keystrokes to steal our vital information, here comes some bright news for users of Microsoft Internet Explorer: A browser plugin named KeyScrambler was released on July 29, 2006 by QFX Software, a startup based in Ormond Beach, Florida.
