New Single Sign-On From ActivIdentity

Offering combines single sign-on password management with a strong authentication platform

Fremont, Calif. " February 25, 2010 " ActivIdentity Corporation (NASDAQ: ACTI), a global leader in strong authentication and credential management, today announced that with the launch of its new version of ActivIdentity SecureLogin Single Sign-On 6.2 customers can take advantage of a packaged solution which combines market-leading password management capabilities with strong authentication.

Customers facing challenges with static passwords, such as rising help desk costs, have turned to Enterprise Single Sign-On products to implement password management and streamline help desk operations. But password management creates even greater vulnerabilities when a single sign-on system uses a static password that can be easily shared or written down. ActivIdentity is uniquely positioned to offer organizations a complete solution that combines strong authentication and password management.

By offering ActivIdentity SecureLogin Single Sign-On as combined solution with ActivIdentity 4TRESS Authentication products, ActivIdentity is supporting the natural progression to stronger forms of authentication by organizations. The solution also reflects a broader industry view on the importance of combining single sign-on and strong authentication. Gartner recently shared this view in the June 2009 report 'Versatile Authentication Servers and Services' by Ant Allan, research vice president, who states that, "Some ESSO vendors provide extensible support for open and proprietary authentication methods. Such an ESSO tool might be considered as 'Versatile Authentication Server lite.'"

Customers purchasing ActivIdentity 4TRESS AAA Server for Remote Access or ActivIdentity 4TRESS Authentication Server can install ActivIdentity SecureLogin Single Sign-On at no additional license cost (1). The new version of ActivIdentity SecureLogin Single Sign-On includes an advanced wizard, automating the scripting of many applications, as well as support for Windows 7.

Customers can learn more about the new features of ActivIdentity SecureLogin Single Sign-On and the combined password management and strong authentication solution by visiting ActivIdentity at the RSA Security Conference in San Francisco, California from March 2 " 5, 2010 (booth #1128).

(1) Support subscription fees apply.
