To successfully deploy Single Sign-On today, most organizations have a set of key requirements that must be met. Here are some tips on how focal Point can help organizations seeking Single Sign-On meet those requirements.
Historically, before computers and the Internet, business transactions were conducted face to face; establishing your partner's identity in such situations presented few problems. As human beings, we are well equipped to discern the extraorginarily subtle variations of the human face and voice to enable positive recognition and identification of our partner.
Driven by increasing regulatory scrutiny and the need to protect key corporate assets, concerns about compliance and data leakage have risen to the top of the priority list for today's corporate executives. This paper discusses multiple policies, procedures and processes corporations must consider to remain secure and compliant.
Authentication technologies such as tokens and smart cards help meet the challenges of protecting sensitive data and securing application access.

Managed print services (MPS) offer organisations the opportunity to control costs, reduce the complexity of managing a heterogeneous infrastructure and improve business processes. With many organisations striving to do more with less, MPS can cut both capital and operational expenses. Now is the time to tackle the huge cost and productivity drain represented by an unmanaged print environment. MPS passes control of this complex infrastructure to the experts leaving an organisation to focus on its core business competencies.
The Cenzic Hailstorm® solution helps financial institutions comply with GLBA and other laws by automating risk assessment, checking for vulnerability to the injection of malicious code into Web servers, automating the testing of code and key controls during the software development process, and helping them respond to new vulnerabilities in the software development lifecycle.
This analyst report written by Stan Schatt, VP & Research Director, Networking at ABI Research helps you decipher the WLAN security alphabet soup, understand architectural approaches to WLAN security, upcoming standards for roaming, load balancing and management frame encryption, and key security requirements that you should consider for you next WLAN deployment.
Company data is vulnerable to threats from - insiders, unauthorized access to data, data backup, off-site mirroring - just to name a few. Encrypting data at rest, on tape or disk, significantly mitigates these threats. This document provides guidance into some of the factors a company should consider when evaluating storage security technology and solutions.
In this white paper, we explore how the uncontrolled use of portable storage devices such as iPods, USB sticks, flash drives and PDAs, coupled with data theft techniques such as ‘pod slurping’, can lead to major security breaches.

This paper details the processes by which ProofMark tags electronic records with a self-validating cryptographic seal that acts as a "tamper indicator" based on a true and provable time-reference datum. With this it is able to provide instantaneous and irrefutable proof of authenticity, no matter where the data resides or who has controlled it.

Password practices that improve security are by their nature burdensome to the user, resulting in passwords difficult to remember which are often changed about the same time they have finally become memorized. Yet password security remains a cornerstone of system security: as much as 80% of security breaches take place not through arcane hacking and virus attacks, but through system infiltration facilitated by use of a password.
At the Defcon security conference on August 2007, a hacker and Defcon staffer who goes by the name Zac Franken, showed how a small homemade device he calls "Gecko", which can perform a hack on the type of access card readers used on office doors throughout the country.
Swiping a card to gain access to a company building is now a perfectly accepted feature of everyday corporate life. Over the years, we have all grown familiar with the routine and the advantages it brings to access control. But where cards were once used exclusively to open doors, controlling who went where and when in a building, now they can be used for a wide variety of extra functions.
Developed by Borer in conjunction with AND-Group, the CruSafe software and hardware system provides a state-of-the-art safety system specifically developed to address the key requirement for real-time tracking of personnel. AND CruSafe is a state-of-the-art safety system which has been specifically developed to address the key requirement for real-time tracking of personnel (often known as POB- Personnel On Board). CruSafe has already been proven to reduce muster times by 70%.
Clear Image was awarded a contract to supply and fit CCTV and Access control to NISA, one of the largest picking warehouses in Europe. The company runs 3 shifts per day and wanted to allocate lockers to employees. The simple solution would have been to give each employee a locker, but between Borer and Clear Image, a better solution was devised. Thanks to our technology, we can create one to many relationships between our devices.
With so much of today's commerce being conducted electronically, providing staff with internet access has become a business necessity. The improper use of e-mail and instant messengers can lead to extremely expensive lawsuits, and the proliferation of mobile devices has made it considerably easier for errant employees to steal sensitive information. This white paper will detail the risks to which organizations that do not monitor their employees are exposed and explain the right way for organizations to go about monitoring.
Guests, contractors, vendors, business partners, and other temporary users require and expect certain level of network access within organizations that they visit. Corporate network access has been typically open; internal LAN connections have seldom required authentication. Today however, regulatory and other security concerns demand that organizations adopt a more secure posture towards these short-term users.
In the past, authentication solutions were either easy to use and inexpensive, but insecure (such as username/password) or very secure but expensive or difficult to implement (such as OTP tokens and smart cards). Arcot offers a third option: WebFort, a software-only, two-factor authentication solution. It delivers the right balance of cost, convenience, and strength.
