Bellefield Systems has added new security features for iTimeKeep, its timekeeping application for legal professionals.
With its newest upgrade, iTimeKeep now features two-factor authentication. In a statement announcing the platform’s upgrades CEO Gabriela Isturiz stressed the importance of the second-factor feature for security, suggesting that the recent Panama Papers leaks “could have been prevented with two-factor authentication.”
The platform also now features Touch ID support, allowing iPhone and iPad users to log in to their accounts via fingerprint scan. The biometric authentication system is increasingly being leveraged by third party platforms for its advantages in both security and convenience, with enterprise data security specialist Accellion also having just announced Touch ID login for its Kiteworks platform, and numerous banks having adopted Touch ID over the last several months as well.
Together with new in-app technical support, iTimeKeep’s new security measures should make it even more appealing to legal professionals keen to ensure their data is protected.
