ActivIdentity Announces Broader Solutions for Novell

Release of New 'ActivIdentity® Solutions for Novell®' Provides Novell Enterprise Customers With Government-Grade Identity Assurance

FREMONT, Calif., Jan. 31 / -- ActivIdentity Corporation (NASDAQ:ACTI), a global leader in digital identity assurance, today announced the ActivIdentity Solutions for Novell. The release of this new product line for Novell builds on the expertise of ActivIdentity in securing international governments and extends the company's offerings for the enterprise. These solutions are designed to assist Novell enterprise customers in securing their Novell applications and environments with a level of identity assurance previously available only to the world's largest public sector agencies. Since 2001, Novell has offered the ActivIdentity SecureLogin SSO single sign on technology to complement its suite of leading identity management offerings. Now, ActivIdentity Solutions for Novell provides an integrated approach to addressing identification, security and compliance requirements with complete range of authentication methods and devices.

"The development of the ActivIdentity Solutions for Novell product line was driven by our customers' growing demand for a comprehensive digital identity assurance infrastructure," said, Vice President of Product Management for Identity and Security at Novell, Nick Nikols. "World governments have set the bar for this level of identity assurance. Together with ActivIdentity, we are able to provide enterprises seeking government-grade protection with solutions designed to meet the needs of the most security-aware organizations in the world."

ActivIdentity, with its partners, has been selected as the provider of smart card-based identity solutions by more government agencies than any other provider, including one of the world's largest smart card deployments for the U.S. Department of Defense. ActivIdentity has also deployed smart card systems to many other innovative government agencies that lead the development of smart card usage and standards, including the Department of Veterans Affairs.

"In the United States, ActivIdentity has issued more than ten million smart card identity badges to federal public sector employees to address their department's identification, security and compliance requirements," said Jason Hart, CEO of ActivIdentity. "Novell customers are now able to fully seize the security trend begun by these government agencies. Previously, they were forced to engage in separate processes for each security requirement. The new ActivIdentity Solutions for Novell product line eliminates this need -- reducing cost, eliminating administrative efforts and decreasing potential security risks."

ActivIdentity Solutions for Novell

ActivIdentity Solutions for Novell are the most complete suite of Identity Assurance and Strong Authentication solutions for Novell customers. Designed to provide a seamless extension of the Novell Identity Management and Authentication product lines, the solutions suite enables enterprises to deploy the security capabilities that they need now, and to add new resources as their security requirements grow.

Novell customers looking to deploy a single secure employee ID badge for physical and logical access throughout their organization can look to the ActivIdentity Smart Employee ID solution, which combines ActivID(TM) Card Management System (CMS) with Novell Identity Manager to streamline smart card issuance and life cycle management. Customers using Novell eDirectory, iChain or Access Manager, and SUSE Linux can take advantage of the ActivIdentity authentication solution to overcome rising security threats and the weakness of simple password authentication. The ActivIdentity authentication offerings are fully integrated with the Novell environment to reduce the risk and expense associated with buying point solutions from multiple vendors and to enable secure, easy, and cost-efficient access to network applications and resources.


The complete ActivIdentity Solutions for Novell product line is available to enterprise organizations today. Products may be obtained through ActivIdentity or Novell worldwide resellers.
