VeriSign To Enhance Strong Authentication Platform - VeriSign® Unified Authentication – Smart Cards

VeriSign today [24 January 2006] announced it will enhance its strong authentication service with the introduction of VeriSign® Unified Authentication – Smart Cards in the second quarter of 2006. VeriSign Unified Authentication – Smart Cards will provide enterprises and government agencies with an integrated, easy-to-use suite of management tools for smart card and PKI deployments, supporting a wide range of smart card types, workflows and deployments options.

Recently, government and industry regulations have directed agencies and enterprises to employ standardised smart card identification mechanisms for their employees and external users. . In addition, large enterprises are starting to use unified physical and logical access smart card credentials as a way to reduce the cost, while increasing the security of their authentication infrastructures.

VeriSign Unified Authentication – Smart Cards will provide a complete authentication solution by extending VeriSign's strong authentication platform with tightly integrated smart cards and PKI components, allowing faster implementation and a lower cost of ownership. Additionally Smart Cards will strengthen VeriSign's offer in the growing Citizen ID card space, extending the offering away from pure, core Authentication services.

“The extension of the VeriSign Unified Authentication platform to support Smart Cards represents the next logical step in providing a complete, open-standards based authentication service for government agencies and enterprises alike,” said Nico Popp, vice president, Authentication Services, VeriSign Security Services. “VeriSign Unified Authentication – Smart Cards will integrate best-of-breed smart card and PKI management components under the same intuitive interface, providing the most comprehensive, easy-to-use suite of management tools that will enable any agency or enterprise to quickly provision, deploy and manage smart card based strong authentication.”

VeriSign Unified Authentication provides a single, integrated platform for provisioning and managing all types of two-factor authentication credentials. It reduces the cost of deployment by leveraging an enterprise's existing infrastructure and delivering a flexible solution built on known, open standards.
