Our EC Group member, László Grad-Gyenge, was awarded for his innovation. He won the first place in Innovation category on eFestival 2012, Hungary.

He created a lot nicer and more secure CAPTCHAs than the currently existing ones on the market by launching an animated version. He offers his CAPTCHAs - under certain limits - as a free web service on the website of the product: http://www.hellocaptcha.com/. He was also interviewed on the main radio station of Hungary about his innovation. His first client in Austria is the Austrian Parliament, which uses the HelloCaptcha for the protection of the online consultations. He is now moving to research social networks within the EC Group to progress with his innovations in this rising new area.
