ActivCard Unveils Smart Card Management System for Corporate and Government Digital ID Cards

Wednesday 12 November 2003 00:46 CET | News

ActivCard has unveiled the most sophisticated version of the ActivCard Identity Management System (AIMS). AIMS Enterprise version 3.5 software minimizes the time and costs associated with deploying and maintaining trusted digital identities.

AIMS Enterprise is the ideal solution for provisioning multi-function smart cards including the data, applets, PKI certificates and other credentials associated with each card throughout its lifecycle. ActivCard offers the only comprehensive solution on the market that allows organizations to issue and manage trusted multi-application identity cards for securing and simplifying access to networks, applications and services -- no matter where the users are. CTOs, CIOs and IT professionals are becoming increasingly aware of the expense and security risks associated with managing a proliferation of username/password credentials and the ongoing cost of leased tokens assigned to each user. A single multi-function smart card can securely store PKI certificates for digital signatures and secure email, biometric and demographic data, one-time-passwords, as well as card applets for a variety of uses. AIMS Enterprise streamlines the transition to smart card-based digital IDs by consolidating those credentials into a single enterprise user ID card. AIMS Enterprise provides all of the necessary functionality required to issue and maintain smart cards throughout their lifecycle, including but not limited to: smart card enrollment and issuance, post-issuance updates and help desk, auditing, reporting, key management, and user self-service support tools. The advanced card management system from ActivCard automates the processes for issuing and revoking permanent and replacement cards, including all credentials associated with the cardholder. AIMS Enterprise enhances and supports the widest wide range of directories, certificate authorities, smart cards and databases on the market. AIMS Enterprise is a key component in ActivCards Corporate Access Card (CAC) solution for achieving a proven return on investment by consolidating credentials and improving IT security. By centralizing digital identity management with a smart card-based access system, the enterprise can use a single device for both network security and physical security resulting in lower hardware and support cost than those disparate systems running separately. A single Corporate Access Card can be used for photo ID, building access, and computer and network security applications.
