Thales SafeSign packages revolutionise delivery of identity management and authentication pilot schemes
Thales offers its award-winning end-to-end strong authentication solution, SafeSign, in a range of pilot packages for enhanced ease of installation and configuration
Thales today (1 October 2007) announces that it is launching individually packaged pilot versions of its market-leading identity management and authentication solution, SafeSign. This innovation enables enterprises such as banks and government agencies to assess the value of a solution against their specific business needs in a faster and more cost-effective manner. By using a SafeSign pilot package, organisations can have the solution operational in under 20 minutes, revolutionising the pilot phase and saving valuable project time.
As technology continues to evolve at an exponential rate, banks and enterprises face a huge investment of time, money and resource to pilot hardware and software projects to remain competitive. Thales 's innovative offering enables organisations to easily implement a tailored strong authentication package that they can integrate with internal applications and run a proof-of-concept programme before committing to full-scale deployment.
To meet the wide-ranging security needs of different customers, Thales is launching pilot packages for EMV, Oath, Vasco and mobile phone authentication, as well as a pilot package for PKI authentication. Further SafeSign packages support a variety of other security procedures, including secure Windows log-on, remote access validation and identity authentication for financial transactions.
The range of SafeSign pilot packages features an easy and rapid install and configuration procedure for Thales 's identity management and authentication solution, providing users with the latest technology to securely authenticate user identities and digitally sign business transactions. Thales 's ‘plug and play' software approach enables customers to get a security solution up and running quickly and in a cost-effective manner. In addition, the transfer from pilot to a full product system is straightforward and efficient.
Paul Meadowcroft, head of transaction security for Thales 's e-Security activities, says: “SafeSign pilot packages will combat the huge burden that implementing new IT projects can have on an organisation's time, budget and resource. The pilot packages give organisations the flexibility required in today's rapidly changing IT landscape to quickly and easily evaluate new technology that is needed to meet the various compliance and regulatory demands they face.”
Thales 's SafeSign pilot packages are compliant with the latest regulations, including the EMV MasterCard CAP specifications.
