New York, NY (PRWEB) December 18, 2007
Data Guard Systems, Inc., today announced the deployment of a new authentication tier for its popular CellularManager point-of-sale and enterprise management software platform. This new authentication tier enhances the overall security of the CellularManager platform by upgrading from 128-bit encryption to 1024-bit encryption for all session information. At the same time, the new security tier dramatically decreases overall server utilization. Thus, application efficiency is increased as the platform's environmental footprint for power consumption is greatly reduced.
When you pair the ever-growing need for advanced security of confidential and personal information with the CellularManager software platform's large footprint in the cellular retail marketplace, facilitating retail transactions for over 4,500 cellular retail locations nationwide, the security capabilities present in this new authentication tier are both timely and relevant for these businesses.
The new authentication tier utilizes the latest RSA encryption libraries which are FIPS 140-2 Level 2 certified - the same type of encryption mandated for use by all levels of the United States government, including NIST, NSA, and the FBI. Despite the increase in complexity from 128-bit encryption to 1024-bit encryption, these new libraries are actually more efficient than previous versions, allowing Data Guard to dramatically upgrade the security while decreasing CPU processing. In fact, this upgrade significantly increases the processing power available to Data Guard's award-winning virtual infrastructure by 80%. In essence, this extra processing power allows Data Guard to support 2 million additional users on the existing infrastructure while launching the new AlertBoot Managed Full Disk Encryption service without the need to add more equipment.
"At Data Guard, we pride ourselves on always being at the forefront of security and technology. Our CellularManager platform was utilizing advanced encryption and security measures from the moment it launched," commented Timothy Maliyil, President of Data Guard Systems. "Not only does this authentication tier seriously upgrade our security for the CellularManager platform but the benefits will also be felt by our new AlertBoot Full Disk Encryption customers. This security upgrade again simply follows our mantra of providing superior enterprise-class software to our clientele at entry-level pricing and accessibility."
