Enabling multifactor authentication is the single biggest thing you can do to ensure the security of any online account. If you have shied away from using it before, hopefully this article can impress upon you the problem it solves, how effective it can be, and just how simple it is to use.
The death of passwords has been predicted for years but such predictions have not proven prophetic given that the most popular method to prove one’s identity is still by coupling an identity with a password. Today however, Skypunch moves a little closer to a world without passwords.
Passwords are the first line of defense in securing any online account and are auto-generated for your account by Skypunch to be absolutely certain they are not used anywhere else; immune to dictionary attacks; and not vulnerable to brute-force attacks in any practical manner.
Vantage Ventures has welcomed Skypunch Technology as one of its newest resident companies and there has already been some initial benefit as the company continues to evolve and expand the use of its online voting system.
All organizations want to know if their voter participation rates are acceptable, but defining “acceptable” is not easy. This article attempts to provide a starting point for answering the question and makes a suggestion on the voter participation statistic you should really focus on.
As announced back on September 15, ElectionsOnline was in the early stages of merging with Skypunch Technology and that meant making a preliminary announcement to that effect so that clients knew to be on the lookout for emails originating from the skypunch.tech domain. That merger is now much further along and ready for this more official announcement.
Elections are not surveys, but that hasn’t stopped some organizations from using survey tools to try to save a buck and get away with using online survey tools to do something they were never intended for, conducting elections. Not infrequently the consequences of taking such a gamble result in disaster which could have been easily avoided.
The ElectionsOnline voting system may be configured to send emails to voters on the start date of an election informing them that voting is open and providing a link to the ballot. For years clients have had the ability to download a report of any emails from that mailing that went undelivered. That has now been replaced with a report showing full engagement.
ElectionsOnline is merging with Skypunch Technology. That means clients should begin immediately instructing their voters to whitelist email originating from the skypunch.tech domain to ensure the same deliverability as always.
Four reasons to consolidate multiple elections into one include reducing costs, simplifying administration, increasing voter participation and simplifying the voting process for the voter.
