2011-03-23 07:00 Torsdagen den 17 mars meddelade säkerhetsföretaget RSA att man utsatts för ett dataintrång som innebär att företagets teknik för tvåfaktorsautentisering – SecurID – inte längre kan betraktas som säker. Attacken mot RSA visar att säkerhetskraven inom branschen hårdnar, och att öppenhet är viktigt när den här typen av intrång inträffar, skriver Johan Henrikson, vd på IT-säkerhetsföretaget Verisec.
Verisec Delivers Strong Authentication Solution to EDB – Serbia’s Largest Power Distribution Company2011-02-08 07:00
Serbia’s largest Power Distribution Company, Elektrodistribucija Beograd (EDB), has chosen Verisec’s Freja Security Appliance to manage strong authentication for its employees and customers.
In Serbia, as well as in many other countries today, an increasing number of value services are being provided electronically. This progress has increased the need for IT security, and specifically for strong online authentication solutions. EDB has chosen Verisec’s Freja Security Appliance in order to manage strong authentication for its customers.
- When we expanded our range of services to support our customers, we needed a solution that could bolster the quality of identity claim verification. With Freja we can provide more services electronically, making our business more effective while at the same time enhancing our customer experience, says Goran Prelic, CIO at EDB.
EDB’s deployment of Freja serves as Verisec’s introduction to the Serbian market.
- The contract with EDB is Verisec’s first in Serbia where we see great potential. Serbia is an exciting market with several large national and regional IT infrastructure projects, where security often is a vital component, says Johan Henrikson, CEO at Verisec.
Freja is a complete solution for managing strong authentication for internal and external users. By basing Freja on open standards (OATH), strong authentication can be provided at a competitive price while maintaining high security. One way of obtaining strong authentication is to use two-factor authentication (2FA), which refers to a system where two factors are used together (such as a token and a PIN) in order to strengthen a proof of identity. Strong authentication using two factors is a system used by Internet banks, corporations and governments worldwide.
