SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 6 /- RSA CONFERENCE 2007 - Aladdin Knowledge Systems (NASDAQ:ALDN), the leader in Software DRM, strong authentication and content security solutions, today announced the release of Token Management System(TM)(TMS) 2.0. Aladdin's latest, significantly enhanced authentication management software, TMS 2.0, enables organizations and managed security service providers to fully manage the token life cycle and associated security applications from one centralized system. The robust management system helps organizations meet strict regulatory compliance requirements while also simplifying and streamlining the deployment, provisioning and maintenance of any mixture of security tokens and smart cards.
Unmatched Simplicity, Manageability Efficiently bringing together users, authentication devices, policies and applications continues to be a significant challenge for enterprise security. In answering this need, Aladdin's TMS 2.0 provides a solution that links all components into a single automated and fully configurable system designed to meet stringent regulatory compliance requirements. TMS 2.0, featuring an open, standard-based architecture and full integration with Microsoft Active Directory, now offers organizations new, powerful features, including:
-- Enhanced scalability through a three-tier, Web-based architecture
-- New and improved Web-based user self-service management tools and administrator management site
-- Handling of exceptions such as employee-on-the-road lost token scenarios
-- Enhanced reporting capabilities with built-in reports and support for external reporting tools
-- Full auditing capabilities
-- Enhanced support for eToken devices: new eToken NG-FLASH connector for flash memory partitioning and management of the auto-run partition in eToken NG-FLASH devices; support for the upcoming eToken PASS (OTP authentication device)
Answers Regulatory Compliance Requirements TMS 2.0 was developed to meet regulatory requirements for data security and facilitate the organization's compliance efforts. With regulatory compliance at the forefront of organizations' concerns, TMS 2.0 stands as a powerful management system that enables organizations to track user authentication and token usage. Equipped with full auditing and reporting capabilities, a new role-based authorization mechanism for controlling TMS access, and encryption of user data all ensure the TMS enables compliance with regulations.
Offers New Support for Managed Security Services Providers Following the growing trend of service providers offering security services, TMS 2.0 includes full, enhanced support tailored to their specific needs. TMS 2.0 includes role-based access to TMS, answering both the security and usability requirements of managed security services providers. Built-in encryption abilities allow the encryption of user data using separate keys for different groups of users, while the ability to manage a number of domains from a single Web-based interface also streamlines solution management.
"Selecting the most fitting authentication devices is the first step, while properly managing them is the second, perhaps most vital requirement for a successful deployment," said Shlomi Yanai, vice president of the Aladdin eToken Business Unit. "With the introduction of Aladdin's TMS 2.0, we are pleased to provide organizations and managed services providers with an unmatched solution that completely and efficiently answers their authentication solution management needs, as well as ever-important compliance requirements. TMS 2.0 serves as yet another example of Aladdin's leadership in the strong authentication market, accompanying our award-winning eToken authentication devices."
TMS 2.0 supports a comprehensive range of security applications such as network logon, VPN, Web access, one-time password (OTP) authentication, secure email, data encryption, and many others. Fully integrated with Microsoft Active Directory, Aladdin TMS 2.0 enables administrators to manage tokens in the same way they manage users from within Active Directory, transparently linking token management with user organizational policies.
