Those companies with a committed investment to Citrix secure remote access can now achieve strong authentication using web services and open standards, thereby lowering overall cost of ownership
Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 16, 2010
Delfigo Security, the pioneer in intelligent authentication solutions, today announced that it has joined the Citrix Ready™ Program. Delfigo has collaborated with Citrix Systems, Inc to certify DSGateway™ for use with Citrix® Access Gateway. DSGateway is a multi-factor security platform which utilizes keystroke and machine identification to assign each user a Confidence Factor (CF) and transparently provide the appropriate level of system access.
"We are pleased to have Delfigo Security join us in the Citrix Ready program," said John Fanelli, vice president of solutions and community marketing at Citrix Systems, Inc. "Citrix Ready makes it easier for customers to select the most suitable virtualization infrastructure products for their specific needs. By taking part in our program, Delfigo has enabled its customers to obtain the highest quality user experience available today, and the simplest means for making an informed product purchasing selection."
The Citrix Ready Program makes it easy for customers to identify complementary products and solutions that can enhance Citrix environments. Customers can be confident that DSGateway has successfully passed a series of tests established by Citrix, and can be trusted to work effectively with Access Gateway.
"Those companies with a committed investment to Citrix secure remote access can now achieve strong authentication using web services and open standards, thereby lowering overall cost of ownership," said Ralph A. Rodriguez, CEO and Founder of Delfigo Corporation.
Delfigo's DSGateway™ solution offers real-time authentication and authorization of digital identities for global enterprises. It uses an artificial intelligence (AI) based security architecture which includes neural and semantic network based algorithms. It answers three critical questions in a new paradigm of security management: (1) Are you who you say you are? (2) Where will I allow you to go? (3) What will I allow you to do? The platform is built upon an open standards architecture and utilizes a risk-based authentication model to ensure compliance, reduce operational costs and improve user productivity. Delfigo's solution addresses the two key challenges companies face when deploying second factor authentication - attribution and distribution - with our zero-footprint security platform.
