MaxVal announces support for USPTO’s authentication changes for EFS-Web and Private PAIR users

With the USPTO’s upcoming authentication change for EFS-Web and Private PAIR, MaxVal is fully prepared to accommodate its clients

LOS ALTOS, CA, UNITED STATES, January 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Silicon Valley-based intellectual property solutions leader, MaxVal announced today that all of their software products and services now support the USPTO’s upcoming Private PAIR changes.

The USPTO recently announced that as of February 15, 2019, EFS-Web and Private PAIR users will have a safer and simpler way to login. They are moving from using PKI certificates to a new two-factor authentication method, which will use USPTO.gov accounts. Logging in with a USPTO.gov account will help users eliminate shared credentials; modernize security processes; save time by granting access to multiple USPTO systems with one consolidated sign-in process; ensure USPTO compliance with the latest Federal Information Security Management Act requirements; help resolve browser compatibility issues; and give users access to EFS-Web and Private PAIR.

Private PAIR access is essential to obtaining secured, unpublished patent information from the USPTO and is an important source of data for many clients, facilitating automated docketing and data verification workflows. To ensure availability of this crucial content, MaxVal is pleased to announce support for this new authentication mechanism across all of their products and services, including symphony®.

“As more and more prosecution docketing is automated, access to Private PAIR data is increasingly important to our clients. At MaxVal, we are proud of our position as a leading integrator of data sources and are committed to ensuring access to these mission-critical resources,” says Nizar Jamal, Chief Technology Officer of MaxVal.
