READING, England, February 22/ --
IGEL Technology works closely with security provider Aladdin by co-developing a solution for dual-factor authentication making unauthorised access and misuse to corporate networks and assets nearly impossible
Server-based computing with Clever Clients from IGEL Technology is regarded as one of the most secure methods of protection against internal and external data theft and unauthorised access in sensitive corporate networks. The equipment is not open to attack from viruses or spyware as it has no drives or hard disc and writing access can be locked down. All applications and data are managed on a central server and can be more easily protected by the administrator against unauthorised access.
The Aladdin eToken enables implementation of applications in the area of remote access and mobile authentication, such as network logon, secure Internet/Extranet, VPN or file/folder encoding. The unique combination of Aladdin technology and IGEL Clever Clients provides sophisticated authentication and security options with only a single eToken. Users benefit from the simple operation with just one device and a single access password.
Peter Schill, Channel Manager, Aladdin GmbH Germany: "In our view, Aladdin and IGEL complement each other extremely well. Using our innovative security solutions and the thin clients from IGEL, companies, such as banks and insurance corporations, can protect themselves against unauthorised access. Industry research and development departments have also valued our products for years and trust Aladdin technology. IGEL is regarded as one of the most innovative suppliers in the booming server-based computing market - and we are more than happy to be part of the team."
Heiko Gloge, Managing Director, IGEL Technology: "Aladdin is the market leader in dual-factor authentication and with the convenient eToken solution, together we are offering our customers an increased level of service as well as a higher level of data security. IGEL Clever Clients will be more secure with Aladdin eTokens and the user will only need to remember a single password - another clever solution."
