Security Solution Combines Tokens, Biometrics, Password Management and More

ORLANDO, Fla.-July 6, 2005-Best-in-class fingerprint authentication hardware and software developer Zvetco Biometrics today announced a partnership with Aladdin Knowledge Systems Ltd., joining the Aladdin eToken Solution Partner Program. The partnership benefits mutual customers with strong integration of Zvetco's Verifi ID ManagerT and the Aladdin eTokenT line of products. The integrated solution provides strong network security by means of multi-factor authentication. The result is a simplified, single security architecture which leverages the capabilities of biometric fingerprint readers, tokens, virtual tokens, smart cards and passwords.

Verifi ID Manager is an affordable and reliable identity management and password replacement system that provides multi-factor authentication, role-based authorization, and administration capabilities, which prevents unauthorized computer or network access. The software includes a wide range of applications that leverage biometric security, tokens, smart cards and other authentication methods for file encryption, secure disk storage, protected application launch and much more—replacing the complexity of secure authentication with a simple and secure touch of a finger. Aladdin eToken is a fully portable USB device the size of a house key that can be used to generate and provide secure storage for passwords, digital certificates, secure authentication, digital signatures and encryption.

“The combination of Aladdin’s eToken USB key and Zvetco Biometrics’ package offers customers strong three-factor authentication with password management,” said Leedor Agam, vice president of the Aladdin eToken Business Unit. “Aladdin is excited about this partnership, as customers can now enjoy best-of-breed authentication and a unified management system, using Aladdin eToken hardware and Zvetco’s biometric solution.”

Verifi ID Manager protects mobile users against the data security risks of lost or stolen laptops, and offers a wide range of security applications for business, consumer and retail use. Verifi ID Manager’s client/server solution consolidates most important inter-dependent administrative functions including user management, identity provisioning, access policy and application management. In addition to strong security, this combination of functionality allows for centralization of the security architecture and consistency of the enterprise security model. Regardless of how users access the network and applications, the result is significant reduction of administrative complexity and increased productivity.

“ Our partner ship with Aladdin was brought about in response to customers who demand multi-factor authentication for utmost security , but are unwilling to give up convenience. With the power of Verifi ID Manager security software, the user can now gain access with a quick finger-touch, so long as the Aladdin eToken is plugged in. No need for passwords of any kind,” said Zavi Cohen, CEO of Zvetco Biometrics. “This new level of multi-factor authentication is only the beginning—powering a network security suite that provides customers with everything from advanced encryption to password management.”
