CRYPTOCard Launches CRYPTO-Server X Authentication Solution for the Mac

Tuesday 6 January 2004 21:10 CET | News

CRYPTOCard has launched CRYPTO-Server X, the authentication solution designed specifically for Mac OS X version 10.3 Panther.

CRYPTO-Server X makes it simple to positively identify all Mac users attempting to access a VPN or Web-based system by coupling something in the users possession (a multi-function smart card, hardware token, or software token), with something the user knows (their PIN). CRYPTO-Server X generates a one-time password for every log-on attempt, making stolen credentials useless to hackers. CRYPTO-Server Xs familiar ATM-style protocol eliminates the user resistance often encountered when organizations attempt to implement an additional layer of security, while the solutions CRYPTO-Admin authentication server generates a unique password for every log-on attempt, so that users no longer have to memorize complicated credentials - significantly reducing the help-desk costs associated with resetting forgotten passwords, and the obvious security risk resulting from users writing down their credentials. CRYPTO-Admin makes it easy for organizations to create a token-deployment database by simply importing existing company directories, while the solutions CRYPTO-Deploy component makes it equally simple for administrators to instantly distribute software tokens from any computer, to any user. CRYPTO-Server Xs versatile software tokens can reside on a users desktop, laptop, or multi-function smart card, while the back-end is hosted on a Panther Server.
