OTTAWA -- CRYPTOCard (www.cryptocard.com), the leading authentication technology developer for heterogeneous environments, is proud to announce that its CRYPTO-Server two-factor authentication solution has received high praise from Butler Group, Europes leading independent IT Research and Advisory organization, for making it simple and cost-effective for organizations to switch from insecure, easily-hacked static passwords to highly-secure and easily-managed two-factor authentication technology.
Butler Group noted that two-factor authentication is becoming more commonly accepted as the de-facto standard for user and systems authentication as companies realize its essential role in keeping data safe and complying with security regulations.
While different industries have their own specific rules and regulatory requirements, the one constant is the need for cost-effective user authentication solutions that are easy to deploy, easy to use, and that balance the security needs of the organization with its everyday operational requirements, said Andrew Kellett, Senior Research Analyst, Butler Group. CRYPTOCard addresses these issues by providing a cost-effective range of products and services that can be tailored to meet the needs of each customer organization and the variable requirements of its individual users.
Butler Group applauded CRYPTOCard for delivering the strong authentication tools organizations require to switch from an insecure, static password infrastructure to one where strong two-factor authentication for all user types can be easily managed and delivered from a central source. CRYPTOCard was also praised from an operational and business perspective for delivering two-factor authentication with minimal additional complexity, minimal impact on the user, and a measurable ROI.
CRYPTOCards service delivery model, which is driven by the provision and management of strong, two-factor authentication, has to be attractive for any organization that recognizes it is time to improve its identity management game plan, noted Kellett. CRYPTOCard enables organizations to deploy a two-factor authentication model that is both straightforward and cost effective, Kellett continued. As a result, security and access control is taken to a higher level, simplicity of access is improved by removing the need for multiple passwords, and systems administration is simplified by using a single, centralized management console approach.
