ActivIdentity Corporation introduced the ActivID Credential Management System Appliance. The credential management appliance will enable medium-sized companies to quickly deploy smart cards and smart USB tokens for secure authentication into desktops, VPNs, applications and building access systems.
As the cornerstone of the ActivIdentity Universal Enterprise Access solution, the ActivID Credential Management System Appliance will reduce the risk of network breaches, compliance problems and financial liabilities for organizations in a variety of markets including finance, technology, health care, energy and manufacturing.
By replacing hard-to-remember, easy-to-guess and expensive-to-manage passwords with certificate-based smart cards and USB tokens, customers are much better protected against the theft of user credentials, including password-stealing malware.
The ActivIdentity Universal Enterprise Access solution enables organizations to create and manage one highly secure smart card for each employee to access digital and physical resources, reducing costs while eliminating threats. Users benefit from the convenience of using a single credential to access their desktop, networks, applications and even the buildings where they work.
