User authentication for e-commerce applications.

Gridsure : 23 April, 2008  (New Product)
Combination of digital signature services and user authentication provides powerful security system for e-businesses.
Ascertia & GrIDsure have teamed up to provide elegant user authentication with advanced digital signing services for e-business and e-workflows. Based on Ascertia's well proven ADSS (Advanced Digital Signature Services) Server and GrIDsure's innovative authentication system, the combined solution provides strong authentication with digital signing and verification services for a wide range of applications and document types.

'Modern electronic business and workflows demand real trust at each stage of the process. Our partnership with GrIDsure provides strong user authentication, in a secure, flexible and easy-to-use solution,' says Rod Crook, Solutions Director of Ascertia. 'Whilst our visible, verifiable, trustworthy digital signatures allow organisations to add trust services to their e-documents and e-workflows, enabling them to safely migrate their old paper-intensive processes to the digital world.'

"Internal and external documents, workflows, agreements, contract notes, orders, receipts can all be issued, signed and approved - the possibilities for implementing authorisation, traceability, accountability and audit within e-business and e-workflows are endless!"

Jonathan Craymer, Chairman, GrIDsure adds: "GrIDsure provides all the benefits of strong two factor authentication, together with one time passwords (OTPs), but without the need for the end-user to carry a physical token or other device. The integrated Ascertia / GrIDsure solution is clearly set to deliver real e-business benefits to a wide range of industry sectors."

The GrIDsure system works on a challenge / response basis, by presenting the user with a one-time randomised grid of numbers (or symbols). The end-user then utilises a personal pre-defined pattern within the grid to select and input the correct response sequence of numbers to gain access.

GrIDsure's advantages are that it is simple to use, elegant in design, works on any system or device where a display can be shown and precludes problems with lost tokens or batteries expiring. It is also a very flexible and cost effective strong authentication solution.

Ascertia's ADSS Server provides clear sign-off, approval, time-stamping, verification and validation services. ADSS Server can be used to sign and approve document workflows, both internally and externally, providing organisations with immutable proof of sign-off and approval for multiple document types, such as PDFs, XML data, Word, Excel, Project and other files as well as Web forms and other electronic data.

ADSS Server also enables long-term document security, through notary archive and long-term evidence archiving features. Digital signatures provide legal-weight long-term evidence to quickly resolve disputes and aid corporate and HR compliance.

The Ascertia GrIDsure Server reduces risk and fraud. It ensures that users and systems are clearly identified, and allowed or denied access to sensitive systems that need better protection than usernames and passwords. In addition documents and data can be signed and approved using GrIDsure to authorise such actions. Each key action can now be securely evidenced.

All e-business and e-workflows demand trust, and the combined Ascertia-GrIDsure solution provides just that - offering a seamless and complete strong authentication, authorisation and validation service that is highly flexible, cost effective, and easy to use and manage.
