CRYPTO-Server 6.4 at MWSF

(booth 1642) will demo its soon-to-be-released CRYPTO-Server 6.4 authentication solution at this week's Expo. CRYPTO-Server 6.4 enables businesses to protect LAN, VPN, web-based (Apache and II S), and desktop access for Mac OS X (Panther/Tiger). Delivering full compatibility with Tiger's support for Smart Cards, the new standard in Two-Factor Authentication adds strength with Apple Keychain Authentication, flexibility with Disconnected Authentication, and support for heterogeneous computing environments. The company says that the upgrade will allow organizations to positively identify users attempting to access a workstation, network, or website via any access point desktop, LAN, VPN or web-based access using CRYPTOCard's familiar ATM-like logon and access/authentication technology.

Version 6.4 offers a variety of new features, including:

  • A new M2M (machine to machine) architecture - a much faster, smaller footprint solution that improves user and system admin experience

  • Apple's convenient Keychain app manages all of a user's important and private passwords but is only protected by a static password itself CRYPTO-Server 6.4 protects Keychain with a 2nd authentication and guards these valuable corporate and personal assets.

  • In this era of the deployed workforce, protection for a mobile workstation (laptop) is needed even when connection to the CRYPTO-Server is not possible. CRYPTO-Server 6.4 provides client-based Disconnected Authentication' that can take place when the server is not detected

  • Designed to integrate with Tiger's robust support for smart cards, CRYPTO-Server 6.4 Smart Card Tokens offer organizations the opportunity to implement a single authenticator' for photo ID, building, door, and, of course, network access.

"Understanding that an organization cannot guarantee system security if it cannot positively authenticate each individual user, CRYPTOCard has built on its Macworld 2004 "Best of Show" award with our new fully-integrated enterprise-class solution," commented Malcolm MacTaggart, President & CEO, CRYPTOCard Corporation. "CRYPTO-Server 6.4 for OS X now makes it simple for organizations to provide true ATM-style One-PIN-and-You're-In' enterprise-class strong user authentication for LAN, VPN, Web, or remote system access."

The company is also offer an Expo special: a five-user bundle (all-you-need-in-1-box the full server software plus five tokens) is available at 50 percent savings--for only $250. CRYPTOCard's products are available from Apple's Federal Website and via distributors, integrators, and resellers in over 70 countries worldwide.
