Government and Business Initiative on Identity Security

Axway : 04 February, 2010  (Company News)
Axway joins other security suppliers in initiative to support innovation in the reduction of fraud and identity theft
Axway, the Business Interaction Networks company, has announced the creation of a strategic global initiative to address identity security and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) requirements of governments and enterprises. This initiative has been created in response to the building momentum for identity management initiatives throughout the world.

Through this initiative, Axway will partner with complementary solutions providers including Thales/nCipher, Entrust and Quantum Secure to address increasing global data security and access control requirements. The companies will deeper integrate and deliver components that include hardware security modules (HSMs), certificate authority, authentication, validation, device and credential management, physical and logical access integration and security consulting.

Identity management's rapid growth is driven by the need to manage complex identity validation and security needs in sectors like defence, healthcare, finance and human services. Presently, technologies the initiative supports - like ID cards with embedded chips, mobile devices and biometrics - are used increasingly to minimise fraud, identity theft and data loss.

The non-exclusive initiative will be promoted to customers, common technology alliances, leading system integrators and security resellers globally. Over time, other like-minded solution vendors will join this consortium to drive integrated solutions and best practices for security initiatives within multiple delivery mechanisms, such as cloud computing. Initiative members will take these integration efforts, coupled with best practices from the joint deployments across all sectors, to provide new delivery options.

Axway will contribute both its proven leadership in Business Interaction Networks and policy-based IT governance along with its Validation Authority (VA) suite technology. Axway's VA technology is uniquely positioned to provide validation and authorization solutions based on both Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) and Simple Certificate Validation Protocol (SCVP).

"We often create this type of initiative with other vendors to deliver complete solutions for specific projects, so formalising this is the next logical step," says Alan Taylor, director for alliances, Axway. "This global security initiative marks an important step forward in addressing government challenges worldwide for security, credential and identity management. This initiative protects citizens and enterprises' critical data across all sectors, and provides a powerful business continuity and authorisation framework."

These integrated solutions will ensure compliance with government mandates for physical and logical access, e-authentication and personal identity validation credentials.

Other solution providers in this security initiative include:

* Thales/nCipher, Integrated Security Solutions for Unrivalled Preparedness
* Entrust, Securing Digital Identities & Information
* Quantum Secure, the leading provider of enterprise software to manage and streamline security identities, compliance and events across disparate physical security systems

"We are excited to partner with Axway on this important strategic initiative for identity management," added Laurie Aaron, vice president, government and alliances, Quantum Secure. "Quantum Secure has been a leading provider of enterprise and government software to manage and streamline security identities, compliance and events in real time across disparate physical security systems."
