CRYPTOCard Partners 2Build4 BV To Provide Dutch Businesses With User-Friendly And Cost-Effective Two-Factor AuthenticationPartnership Underscores CRYPTOCard?s Commitment To Eliminate The Greatest Risk To Networks ? Weak Static Passwords! (October 03, 2006) CRYPTOCard (www.cryptocard.com), the leading authentication technology developer for heterogeneous environments, today announced that in response to the fast-increasing European demand for its cost-effective cross-platform CRYPTO-Server two-factor authentication solution, it has partnered with Dutch value-added IT security reseller, 2Build4 BV.
Developed to meet real-world requirements where Linux and Mac workstations often live in a mixed Windows domain, with Windows clients and Apache or IIS Web servers CRYPTO-Server makes it simple and cost effective to positively authenticate each user within a true heterogeneous environment.
CRYPTOCards event-based CRYPTO-Server two-factor authentication technology eliminates weak static passwords by making it simple for an authorized user to gain secure, positively-identify access to remote access servers, VPNs, firewalls, web servers, and wireless access points by simply entering their PIN together with a random password generated by their secure token.
By generating a unique password for every log-on attempt, CRYPTO-Server makes stolen credentials useless to hackers while simultaneously ensuring users do not have to memorize complicated credentials significantly reducing the help-desk costs associated with resetting forgotten passwords, and the security risk resulting from users writing down their passwords.
?An organization cannot guarantee system security if it cannot positively identify each individual user, and CRYPTOCards two-factor authentication technology makes this a simple process for Windows, Linux, or Macintosh users, explained Neil Hollister, CEO, CRYPTOCard, Inc. ?2Build4 BVs local presence will make it easy for Dutch organizations to purchase and deploy CRYPTOCards simple, cost-effective, and highly-secure alternative to insecure static passwords.
