New ActivIdentity Banking Security Appliance Debuts

ActivIdentity 4TRESS Appliance offers support for various authentication methods

FREMONT, Calif. – May 24, 2010 – ActivIdentity Corporation (NASDAQ: ACTI), a global leader in strong authentication and credential management, today announced the launch of an innovative new appliance-based version of its ActivIdentity 4TRESS™ Authentication Server. The product is targeted at small- and mid-sized banks and other financial services organizations with a need for a range of authentication methods as well as strong audit logging across multiple service channels.

The ActivIdentity 4TRESS Authentication Appliance combines ActivIdentity’s industry leading versatile authentication engine with a hardware security module (HSM) to provide a cost-effective solution that is both highly secure and simple to deploy. The embedded HSM is Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 3 and Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 4+ compliant.

The ActivIdentity 4TRESS Appliance offers support for many authentication methods (e.g. user name and password, knowledge-based authentication, one-time password, out-of-band transaction codes and public key infrastructure [PKI] certificates) and diverse audiences across a variety of service channels, making it the preferred versatile authentication platform for customer-facing transactions of many financial institutions worldwide.

“The combination of ActivIdentity 4TRESS Authentication Server software and the convenience of the appliance form factor enables financial services organizations to launch a highly secure Internet banking site or fortify an existing online presence in a shorter period of time, at a reduced total cost of ownership,” said Jerome Becquart, Vice President of products and services at ActivIdentity. “Leveraging the appliance, organizations can abide by compliance mandates and grow customer confidence in the security of self-service channels such as Internet, mobile banking, or automated phone systems.”

The ActivIdentity 4TRESS Authentication Appliance is available immediately. The appliance comes as a 1-RU mounted box with redundant power supply. For increased ease of deployment, ActivIdentity provides a version that comes pre-configured for TEMENOS T24 ARC Internet Banking.
