BEIJING, April 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Renren Inc. (NYSE: RENN) ("Renren" or the "Company"), China's leading real-name social networking internet platform, today announced its partnership with Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC) and Feitian, a leading innovator of security technologies and applications, to introduce Intel ® Identity Protection Technology (IPT) to Renren.com SNS platform.
Intel ® IPT has built two-factor authentication support directly into the platforms of 2nd generation Intel ® Core™ processor-based PCs, helping to prevent unauthorized access to user accounts.

With this additional layer of security, Renren users can safely and easily log on, create and share content, play music and games, and purchase other internet value-added services.
"We are delighted to be the first Chinese website to introduce Intel's latest identity protection technology adapted by Feitian authentication solutions," said Mr.
James Liu, Chief Operating Officer of Renren. "User security is a top priority at Renren. We will continuously strive to create a highly secure and convenient online authentication and payment environment for our users."
