SecureAccess tokenless 2FA available from Bell Micro

Bell Micro : 26 January, 2010  (New Product)
IT distributor and two factor authentication specialist strike deal enabling Bell Micro to market tokenless data protection expertise available from SecureAccess
The security division of specialist value-added distributor Bell Micro has kick-started 2010 by signing a partnership deal with SecurEnvoy to promote its SecurAccess product suite. Announced today, the agreement will see the two companies working closely together to ramp up awareness of tokenless two-factor authentication solutions in the UK channel, to ensure they quickly become a critical component of any business' overall security strategy.

The SecurAccess product provides remote workers with 'virtual tokens' - essentially pass codes - which are forwarded to mobile phones, via SMS. These codes are then entered in to the system, alongside the usual login details, to enable users to access networks and emails safely. Working in this way removes the need for a mobile workforce to carry traditional hardware tokens with them, which Bell Micro believes its channel partners, and their customers, will find compelling.

"Hardware gets lost and damaged and the associated business issues, such as employee downtime, then become a nightmare for businesses of all sizes to deal with," said Ed Callacher, Security Divisional Director at Bell Micro. "We have been pro-actively reviewing the security market for new partners to complement existing products and services and establishing a business relationship with SecurEnvoy made complete market sense. We have been very impressed by the SecurAccess technology and are confident that our partners will find a very real and immediate business benefit in being able to offer this security solution as an alternative option to the hardware token."

SecurAccess fully integrates into Microsoft Active Directory, Novell E-Directory, Sun Directory Server and OpenLDAP. Integration is simple and requires no schema changes. No additional database's are required which reduces costs and simplifies on-going support. Another benefit is that no software is required to be loaded on to the user's phone which instantly eliminates complex testing, support and training issues.

Steve Watts, co-founder at SecurEnvoy, added "Mobile working is becoming the favoured option for employees who want more flexibility, but with this comes higher security risks which absolutely need to be addressed. Tokenless two-factor authentication is, without doubt, a more secure option."

Watts continued: "There's a growing demand for secure network access, and businesses need to feel confident that they've got the right supporting technologies in place to achieve this. We are confident that by working with Bell Micro, and as a result of having access to it's channel partners, that we can have a positive impact on how UK businesses can implement both straight forward and cost-effective remote worker security policies."
