Identity assurance firm ActivIdentity has launched a credential management appliance designed to allow mid-sized firms to deploy a smart card/token-based system for user-friendly secure authentication into buildings and corporate systems.
The ActivID Credential Management System Appliance could reduce the risk of network breaches and financial liabilities, and boost compliance efforts in a number of verticals including healthcare, energy and manufacturing, the firm said.
The appliance is part of the ActivIdentity Universal Enterprise Access platform which offers a single credential to access physical and digital assets, making life easier for the user while boosting security by circumventing the problem of password-stealing key-logging malware, according to the company.
"With recent studies showing that almost half of network breaches result from stolen or weak credentials, secure identity assurance is more critical to business today than it has ever been," said Grant Evans, chairman and chief executive of ActivIdentity.
"By offering a simple credential management appliance that can be installed in under 30 minutes, we are bringing the power of one secure credential for desktop, network and physical access to mid-sized organisations, helping them improve security and meet compliance requirements."
