Major UK service provider to use managed authentication

Ntl:Telewest Business : 26 January, 2009  (Company News)
CRYPTO-MAS to be employed by ntl:Telewest as a managed authentication service to provide improved levels of security to the company's UK subscribers
CRYPTOCard has announced that ntl:Telewest Business has become the latest Service Provider partner to adopt its Managed Authentication Service (CRYPTO-MAS), to deliver enhanced security to its UK business customers, service providers and public sector organisations.

As 'cloud-computing' continues to gather momentum to meet the needs of distributed organisations and mobile workforces, so the need for secure identity and access management solutions have become paramount. CRYPTOCard's 'cloud-based' authentication service enables ntl:Telewest Business to offer its customers a secure authentication solution that reduces the risks associated with remote access and web-based processes, and increase compliance, at an affordable price.

Andrew McGrath, Commercial Director of ntl:Telewest Business, commented, "As a managed services provider, we have a responsibility to ensure we're delivering business-grade services that optimise and safeguard our customers' business operations. With significant growth in remote access and collaborative applications, identity and access management is now fundamental to enterprise security. We spent significant time over the past 2 years developing and launching new remote access services for our customers and selected CRYPTOCard's CRYPTO-MAS to answer the need for strong and flexible identity management. Having a product such as CRYPTOCard's CRYPTO-MAS in our portfolio demonstrates the value-add and service excellence that our customers buy into."

McGrath continued, "CRYPTOCard demonstrated the strongest technology platform for two-factor authentication, and the calibre of its customers clearly validates the international success of the product. As an end-to-end managed service, there is no need to invest in new infrastructure and CRYPTOCard has demonstrated the flexibility and commitment to develop product features and align operational processes to meet our strict demands. Critically, our customers benefit from an affordable and robust security solution."


"This is another great endorsement of our technology and a clear indicator that CRYPTO-MAS is fast becoming the security platform of choice for leading UK Service Providers looking to offer managed security solutions," commented Neil Hollister, CEO and Chairman of CRYPTOCard.

"As the second largest fixed line telecommunications provider in the UK, ntl:Telewest Business has a growing reputation in next generation network infrastructure and service innovation. Choosing CRYPTOCard as its managed security partner further reinforces our position as being the most technically advanced, adaptable and cost-effective managed authentication service in the market today."

CRYPTO-MAS is a unique managed service which provides a flexible, affordable solution using two-factor authentication technology, and positively identifies individuals before giving them access to applications, data and networks. CRYPTO-MAS simply sits in front of a company's remote access or VPN network - no hardware or software installation is required. High levels of security can be provided in a matter of minutes.
