CryptoCard, Evidian Team Up

CryptoCard and Evidian will increase the opportunity for resellers to offer a highly-competitive end-to-end access management security solution

LONDON and OTTAWA -- CRYPTOCard (www.cryptocard.com), the leading authentication technology developer for heterogeneous environments, is proud to announce its collaboration with Evidian, manufacturers of WiseGuard, the leading European Enterprise Single Sign-On solution. The joint offering will increase the opportunity for resellers to offer a highly-competitive end-to-end access management security solution.

CRYPTOCard's collaboration with Evidian increases security by eliminating the need for users to remember or document passwords - reducing help desk calls and related costs by as much as fifty per cent. The joint offering also increases user satisfaction and productivity by removing the need to remember, input, or manage password changes and makes it simple for organizations to comply with new security legislation and privacy laws such as SOX and HSPD-12.

By combining two distinct purpose-built solutions, CRYPTOCard and Evidian provide improved functionality over alternative offerings from such vendors as ActivIdentity and RSA. The joint offering provides end users with a cost-effective end-to-end access management security solution with superior features including single sign-on, identity management, provisioning, and dynamic access control in all types of environments: from traditional applications to web/J2EE applications.

The joint solution also provides a Primary Re-authentication feature, which prevents users from logging on, then leaving their workstation - thus preventing another user from accessing sensitive applications and data from their workstation. Productivity is also dramatically improved as the new solution provides the ability to switch between users within the same windows session.

Resellers benefit from the opportunity to generate increased revenues through a differentiated offering. The joint offering also provides CRYPTOCard resellers with an excellent opportunity to increase service revenues.

"Although positive authentication has traditionally been utilized by larger enterprises who have the resources to evaluate and install such solutions, CRYPTOCard's collaboration with Evidian will make it simple for any-sized organization to implement effective password management and authentication -

not only improving overall efficiency, but also ensuring full compliance with increasingly-strict security legislation," said Mark Lardner, Managing Director of leading UK Security Distributor AppSpeed. "Our reseller channels are really excited that they can now provide a better end-to-end security solution that will enable any sized client to improve their business processes," Lardner continued. "And of course by selling the combined CRYPTOCard/Evidian solution resellers will be able to benefit from revenue and services opportunities that were simply not open to them before."

"This collaboration with Evidian underscores CRYPTOCard's commitment to provide the ideal two-factor authentication solution for both resellers and end users," said Neil Hollister, CEO, CRYPTOCard, Inc. "This partnership will enable resellers to generate increased revenues through a differentiated offering, as well as providing them with an opportunity to generate additional consultation, implementation, and support revenues through extended security services."

Evidian's WiseGuard provides unique selling points that add value to CRYPTOCard-based infrastructures. These include enabling users to delegate access for specific applications (in accordance with the company security policy), without having to pass over their credentials. Also, in addition to providing access policies by user, application, and time, a user can specify certain locations or workstations from which only certain applications can be accessed.
