In an attempt to expand the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) market beyond large-scale enterprises Baltimore has released an off-the-shelf PKI package it claims can be implemented in five days.
The company's Trusted Business Suite is a modular system that can build PKI authentication into common office applications and functions. The system is designed for smaller enterprises who don't have the infrastructure to manage a large-scale PKI implementation.
At the core of the new system is the Baltimore Applied Solutions Engine (Base), pre-configured back office hardware that runs the modules, either individually or as a complete package.
The PKI modules include an Outlook email client, Office applications, Virtual Private Network, wireless and mobile support and secure web access.
Collaborative working and a Lotus Notes module will be out with the second version of the software.
The modules have triple Data Encryption Standard (Des) encryption built in as standard and is designed to be easy enough to use quickly.
Two factor authentications such as SecurID can also be used with the system.
"We've set up more PKI systems than anyone else in the industry and know what people want," said Paul Parke, director of business development for Baltimore.
"The bulk of that has been in large infrastructure companies who can afford the time and money to set up a system, but this is a more off-the-shelf product that we can get up and running within five days."
