About the Company

Do you want to make the world a safer place? Averon is reinventing the boring, inconvenient and ironically insecure world of multi-factor authentication. We’re bringing authenticity to the internet by letting people present their identities to the right people, websites, and agencies that they might need. We are displacing the old ways of usernames and six different versions of passwords and making ultra-secure authentication invisible to the end user. We like to say that when you make something convenient in the world of security, you make it truly secure--our product, does just that with no installation or effort required by the user.
