CRYPTOCard has released a new app from the Macworld Expo in San Francisco. CRYPTO-Server X is a security solution designed for remote network access authentication. The solution features user specific tokens for authorization and one-time passwords per log-in attempt. According to CRYPTOCard:
CRYPTOCard, an innovative leader in authentication technology, today announced the launch of 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
You can find more information about CRYPTO-Server X at the CRYPTOCard Web site or at booth #1747. CRYPTO-Server X is available starting at US$299.00 for a 5-user pack.
