Toopher Deploys At UT Austin
Austin-based Toopher, the online security company headed by Josh Alexander, has scored a big win at the University of Texas at Austin. The company has been providing two-factor, mobile authentication for both faculty and staff at the campus, to help secure access to everything from paychecks and W2's to other resources at the school. Financial impact of the deal was not disclosed. Toopher was actually created at UT Austin, having been developed by a UT PhD candidate and a UT adjunct professor, and came of the school's Austin Technology Incubator (ATI). The company said that it went live on campus in early July for faulty and staff.
