Nok Nok is a privately held company and is based in San Jose, California. It was founded in 2012 by a team of security industry veterans from companies such as PGP, PayPal, Phoenix, ValiCert, Sun Microsystems and Netscape with the vision that authentication lies at the heart of the security problem for every computing ecosystem.  Solving this problem requires us overcome the limitations of legacy authentication solutions such as passwords and OTPs (one-time-passwords). Those methods are subject to scalable attacks such as phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks that can be done remotely and be automated to cause maximum damage.  Nok Nok’s innovations deliver plug and play authentication solutions that are simple, secure and scalable for three key constituencies – end users, developers and IT support personnel.

Nok Nok is the author of several key industry standards ratified by bodies such as the FIDO Alliance and the W3C. The company’s innovation and IP extends well beyond its contribution to the standards community.  The Nok Nok team is sought after to consult and comment at industry forums and conferences and to regulatory bodies worldwide on best practices related to Identity & Authentication across many industries and are a trusted advisor to their customers.
