ActivIdentity And idOnDemand Partner For Cloud Security

idOnDemand will integrate ActivIdentity's ActivID technology to provide a cloud-based system for issuing and managing smart cards

FREMONT, CA, Feb 23, 2010 -- ActivIdentity, a global leader in strong authentication and credential management, today announced that Managed Security Service Provider idOnDemand(TM) has selected its ActivIdentity ActivID(TM) Card Management System to simplify the issuance and management of digital credentials on smart cards.

The idOnDemand service eliminates the pain and complexity of deploying and managing digital identities on-site and ensures that organizations of all sizes can take advantage of smart identification. idOnDemand leverages the ActivIdentity ActivID Card Management System as the back-bone of its cloud-based service, allowing organizations to issue, distribute, and manage digital certificates on smart ID cards. These smart ID cards can be used for physical, logical, remote, and online authentication services. Additionally, the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) certificates that reside on the smart cards create trust for email and transaction signatures as well as encryption of files, data, and email communication.

"Building a cloud-based smart ID service requires the selection of world-class technology to assure reliability and scalability to our clients," explains Jason Hart, chief executive officer at idOnDemand. "We selected ActivIdentity ActivID Card Management System as a core component of our service infrastructure as it offers standards-based support, which enabled us to easily plug it into our multi-tenant architecture and future-proof our service as standards evolve. Another deciding factor was the platform's field-patented, secure post-issuance capabilities."

"The selection of our credential management system by idOnDemand is another testament of our Managed Security Service Provider go-to-market strategy," said Grant Evans, chairman and chief executive officer of ActivIdentity. "At the same time, the growing number of service providers leveraging our technology drives the adoption of subscription-based pricing within ActivIdentity, which offers our shareholders a more predictable financial business model."

idOnDemand consolidates multiple digital credentials such as building access cards, remote VPN tokens, multiple user names and passwords into a single, secure digital and visual identification card that is globally trusted and recognized between organizations.
