The Authenex Strong Authentication System (ASAS) Gives Administrators a Break, by Enabling Users to Perform Routine Token Management Tasks
New Self Service Center module reduces IT costs and frees up IT staff by enabling users to perform basic A-Key token management and deployment tasks.
HAYWARD, Calif., July 16 /-- Authenex(R) (a leading provider of cost-effective and strong e-security applications) has announced the release of version 220.127.116.11 of its acclaimed ASAS(R) System, including a new module that enables users to easily perform basic A-Key token deployment and management tasks.
The Authenex(R) Strong Authentication System (ASAS(R)) enables organizations of all sizes to authenticate network and Web users, secure email and ensure that data taken on the road is safe from loss or theft. It is easy to install and administer, freeing up IT staff in large companies and empowering small companies with limited IT resources.
"This is the module that many organizations have asked for. It really steps up the convenience of the ASAS(R) System, while saving organizations money and time," said William Chen, V.P. of Sales at Authenex.
The savings result from easier deployment and maintenance of A-Key tokens. For example, simplified deployment of new A-Key(R) tokens: IT adds user data in a .csv file to the ASAS(R) Database (or pulls the data directly into the database via LDAP), then sends out new tokens to users. The users then access the ASAS(R) Self Service Center, initialize their tokens and they are ready to go. Or, to replace a lost or stole token, a user logs into the Self Service Center and reports the lost or stolen token, gets a temporary OTP number to use until a replacement token arrives and (when it does arrive) uses the Self Service Center to initialize the replacement.
"Authenex has always been about the peace of mind that comes with knowing your critical data is safe and accessed only by those you want to give access to. Now, we can also give administrators a break and reduce IT overhead as well. It doesn't get much better than that," said Paul Lin, CEO of Authenex, Inc.
