Wyse partnership for secure access in thin computing environments

Aladdin Knowledge Systems : 29 October, 2008  (Company News)
Aladdin has teamed up with thin client experts Wyse to market two-factor authentication technology for thin computing
Aladdin Knowledge Systems and Wyse Technology have announced a worldwide partnership. Wyse and Aladdin will provide enterprises a secure and flexible solution combining Wyse Thin Client roaming computing and Aladdin eToken strong authentication for secure access to corporate resources from any computer, safeguarding corporate information while increasing productivity.

The joint solution can be viewed at the Aladdin and Wyse booths during the Citrix Partner Summit event at the Walt Disney World Dolphin and Swan Resort in Orlando, Florida on October 26th to 29th. Both Wyse thin clients and Aladdin eToken are Citrix Ready Certified Solutions.

The Aladdin-Wyse solution allows users to securely access vital corporate information and applications via the Wyse's thin client virtual environment. Using Aladdin eToken certificate-based smartcard authentication, Wyse Thin Client users are able to securely connect to corporate resources from any computer, increasing productivity while on the road and ensuring organizations' security standards. The solution enables users to simply verify their identity with their eToken device, and to launch their individual desktop profile at the same point at which they ended the previous session, enabling the user to resume work immediately even if they log in from a different workstation.

By combining roaming desktop capabilities with smartcard-based login, organizations are able to prevent unauthorized access to secured networks by eliminating walk-by security breaches. Aladdin eToken allows companies to more easily comply with regulations that require two-factor authentication to protect sensitive data, such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, SOX, and many others.

"We've seen tremendous growth in the thin client market and anticipate much more as corporations increasingly turn to thin computing to reduce costs and enhance security for mobile computing by combining strong authentication with virtual desktop technology," said Ricardo Antuna, VP of Business Development & Product Management at Wyse Technology. "The inherent security of Wyse thin clients combined with Aladdin's eToken provides highly secure means for accessing virtual desktop environments, enabling organizations to reduce cost, prevent data loss and increase employee effectiveness. This is achieved by enabling them to securely connect to corporate resources and applications from any computer."

"Secure network access and strong authentication is a growing concern among organizations in order to maintain a secure environment, comply with regulations and prevent data loss," said Phil Pavay, vice president of global business development at Aladdin Knowledge Systems. "The combined solution from Wyse and Aladdin provides end users with an easy-to-use solution that combines true mobility with the most robust security."

Aladdin and Wyse will collaborate on a worldwide basis to promote the joint solution, enabling secure multi-session support, increasing user productivity by enabling fully functional application interfaces and improving security compliance by leveraging two-factor authentication technology. Channel partners and resellers will add value to their customers by offering a scalable and flexible solution to address customers' needs to reduce operational costs while improving security measures.
