Authasas has announced the release of its Advanced Authentication solution for integration into Novell’s SecureLogin software.
The new integrated solution secures single sign-on credentials with several strong authentication methods, including fingerprint biometrics, contactless smart cards, and USB Flash drive token authenticators, thus eliminating the need for application passwords.
“We have delivered the ability to completely eliminate all passwords by combining strong authentication with award winning SSO technology,” says Authasas CEO Reinier van der Drift.
The solution supports both x86 and x64 platforms, and may be deployed on Microsoft Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 workstations, as well as on Microsoft Terminal Server and Citrix Xen Servers running Windows Server 2003 and 2008.
Additionally, Authentication servers may be deployed on Windows 2003 and 2008 servers and leverage Microsoft Active Directory for centralized credential storage and policy management.
Supported authentication methods include: biometric fingerprinting with full compatibility and interoperability with over 50 biometric readers/vendors, Java and mini-driver smart cards, contactless smart cards supported by OmniKey readers using standard MIFARE and HID iClass, and 2 factor USB Flash drives.
