RSA Security Enhances Portfolio of Strong Authentication Solutions with RSA® Authentication Manager 6.1

  • 13 July, 2005 13:12

<p>RSA Security Inc. (Nasdaq: RSAS) has announced RSA® Authentication Manager 6.1, the enterprise software powering RSA SecurID® two-factor authentication technology, which now delivers 802.1X-based security for organisations with both wired and wireless environments. RSA Security also unveiled RSA SecurID for Microsoft® Windows® 2.0 solution and announced broader platform support – including server environments based on Linux, HP-UX and IBM® AIX® operating systems – providing greater flexibility and choice for customers seeking the security benefits of strong authentication.</p>
<p>These solutions also help meet the needs of customers seeking to leverage strong authentication within the enterprise.</p>
<p>As organisations deploy wireless business networks, there is an increasing need to ensure that data are secure in unwired environments, as underscored by a March 2005 survey by RSA Security which revealed that more than one-third of wireless business networks were insecure. With a RADIUS server powered by a specialised version of Funk Software’s Steel-Belted Radius®, RSA Authentication Manager 6.1 software offers 802.1X support to help protect sensitive corporate data within wired and wireless networks. The software also supports a number of Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) methods, including EAP-Protected One-Time Password (EAP-POTP), an open specification for wired/wireless strong authentication.</p>
<p>RSA SecurID for Microsoft Windows 2.0 Solution</p>
<p>RSA Security also delivered new capabilities and key enhancements to RSA SecurID for Microsoft Windows solution with the release of version 2.0. New capabilities include:</p>
<p>• Improved policy management capabilities for Microsoft Windows administrators
• Enhanced usability for an improved end-user experience
• Seamless password integration with Microsoft Windows administrator utilities
• Increased scalability, including high-availability and reduced storage costs
• Complete integration with the RSA SecurID SID800 USB-enabled authenticator</p>
<p>“As organisations grapple with ever-changing threats to corporate data security, RSA Security is committed to delivering the greatest range of flexibility and choice in strong authentication,” said John Worrall, vice president of worldwide marketing at RSA Security. “The RSA Authentication Manager 6.1 release, which includes RSA SecurID for Microsoft Windows 2.0 solution, offers a range of solutions that meet the needs of our customers worldwide, particularly in terms of addressing authentication inside the firewall.”</p>
<p>RSA Authentication Manager 6.1 and RSA SecurID for Microsoft Windows 2.0 will be available in Australia in October, 2005.</p>
