AuthentiX Supports .NET Server ( IIS 6 ) The latest versions of AuthentiX and WebQuota ( 5.5 G +) now support .NET server (IIS 6). As you migrate your systems to .NET server (IIS 6), simply upgrade to the latest version of AuthentiX or WebQuota (http://www.flicks.com/upgrades).
WebQuota vastly improved – with cookie based limited concurrent logins
WebQuota now allows you to identify users who share usernames and password, by monitoring the user’s cookie ! Previously concurrent logins could be identified by monitoring the username and the originating IP address. Yet because many proxy hosts revolve IP address mid session, a legitimate user can appear to be coming from multiple IP addresses – making it seem like they are sharing their password with friends. Using cookie based limited concurrent logins, a unique cookie accurately identifies illicit users who share passwords, and takes the appropriate action to protect your profits.
VideoQuota has new feature for Protecting By Referrer : Timer Tokens!
Protection by Referrer is the method by which you allow only those visitors coming from approved websites to access your member only content. To date, Windows Media Server and Player do not pass a referring URL. VideoQuota 5.5 G includes Timer Tokens ™ , which utilizes the referring information that is passed through the http:// protocol to allow approved referring web visitors access to member-only streaming content served over the mms:// protocol.

Ensure your website’s security with strong passwords, and PasswordCheck!
One of the most common server security vulnerabilities is users who have weak (a.k.a. easily guessable) passwords. PCheck is a COM component that checks passwords for character limitations and requirements, ensuring that your members use strong passwords. Strong passwords are much more difficult for a hacker to “guess”, providing further protection against dictionary (brute force) attacks. With PasswordCheck, you can enforce minimum and maximum password length, alphanumeric password, passwords uniqueness as compared to the username, and many other features.

SmarTech turns to Flicks Software for authentication for web-based business applications
SmartBox Suite of Solutions is a set of pre-built web-based business applications developed using the SmartBox Development Tools. Each solution is designed to solve a specific business problem, while collectively all are controlled and managed from a single SmartBox Engine, called a SmartBox site. In an effort to minimize development time and cost, SmarTech turned to Flicks Software for authentication. “We needed an ISAPI filter to invoke the SmartBox Authentication COM+ Server (DLL) - so authorization to ANY objects on IIS could be customized. “, Explained Felix Chau of SmarTech. “When a user selects a file or folder within the SmartBox Document Management System, we use AuthentiX to call our DLL within which we check who the user is, their role in SmartBox, and their security level for the requested document”.
