Santa Clara & San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 16, 2005
Bharosa, a provider of Web-based security solutions to combat online identity theft, and CitadonÂ®, a provider of integrated Web-based collaboration, document management and business process management solutions, today announced an agreement to expand the range of security options available to worldwide users of CitadonÂs Web-based collaboration solutions.
Under the terms of this agreement, Citadon will integrate Bharosa's v.CryptÂ platform into the Citadon CW (Collaboration Workspace) platform. As a result, Citadon clients will have even greater flexibility to authenticate use at the document, task, user, and event level and will have additional tools to satisfy digital signature requirements, which are very important in highly regulated industries such as pharmaceutical trials and financial services.
Named one of the top 100 Fastest Growing Companies Private Companies by the San Francisco Business Times, Citadon has a rapidly growing clientele that includes some of the largest enterprises in the world Â companies with business-critical projects and stringent and rising concerns regarding information security. "Our clients require the ability to securely exchange information with their external business partners and want the ability to tailor the level of security access to meet their business needsÂ said Howard Koenig, President and CEO for Citadon. ÂIn this climate of growing risk, weÂre committed to delivering the most rigorous security available. By making BharosaÂs v.Crypt solution available as an option for Citadon CW, weÂre able to provide industry-leading protection against all known forms of online fraud as well as future threats.Â
The Bharosa v.CryptÂ platform is the first complete enterprise defense against Internet-based fraud, offering advanced user authentication and fraud monitoring, detection and alerting capabilities. Bharosa secures applications without needing hardware, software or devices, which is critical to businesses like Citadon, who host services on the Web. "Bharosa has found an effective way to guard businesses and their consumers against phishing, Trojans and other online frauds without use of any devices or downloads," said Paul Saunders, information security analyst for WR Hambrecht + Co.
Bharosa CEO Jon Fisher states businesses can be much more confident working with solution providers like Citadon who Âare taking action on behalf of their customersÂ interests, not waiting for the solutions of the past to catch up to todayÂs risks. Smart businesses know what having high standards for service means in todayÂs world,Â says Fisher. ÂIt means you canÂt implement new software systems, a process which can take months, at every turn, in response to every new risk. Systems need to be fluid enough to adapt to what in six months might be a whole new set of threats associated with doing business online. At Bharosa, which means trust, weÂre creating confidence in a solution that will help our clients rise to tomorrowÂs challenges.Â
