MARX Data Security, with offices in Germany and the U.S., has chosen Texas-based Raak Technologies’ RaakSign middleware for use in its tamper-resistant USB CrypToken. RaakSign enables users to securely store their digital certificates and keys on the token for use with applications such as Windows login, Web access, digital signatures and email signing.
Austin, Texas, and Wackerstein Germany– Raak Technologies and MARX Data Security have announced that MARX Data Security has become a licensee of RaakSign, Raak’s cryptographic middleware. MARX’s affiliate in Atlanta, Georgia, MARX CryptoTech has also signed as a licensee.
MARX will use its recently released CrypToken with RaakSign to enforce 2-Factor authentication, requiring the end user to have both the CrypToken (something you have) and a PIN (something you know) to log on to a network or application. The CrypToken is physically and logically tamper resistant, ensuring that the end-user’s digital credentials are not copied, modified or shared.
The CrypToken is the smallest USB token on the market, and the only USB token with a metal case, providing security and durability. The new CrypToken offers the open and multi-application smart card operating system MULTOS, in addition to PKCS#11 and Microsoft CAPI. MULTOS is the only smart card operating system meeting the ITSEC E6-high standard and achieving EMV (Europay/MasterCard/Visa) certification.
“The reason we chose to utilize RaakSign on our CrypToken was because RaakSign offered high versatility to support the rigorous security needs required by our customers and offered one of the most robust middleware solutions that includes high security and support for multiple applications,” said Philipp Marx, President of MARX.
RaakSign enables the user to easily and securely store their digital certificates and keys on the CrypToken for use with any standards based application including:
–Email Signing and Encryption
“We are very pleased to have added both MARX organizations to our family of RaakSign licensees” said Dan Cunningham, President & CEO of Raak. “The combination of RaakSign and the MARX CrypToken offers one of the most robust two factor authentication solutions in the market today” he added.
