Suwanee, GA (PRWEB) July 25, 2010
T3i's Remediation Services Group has announced a partnership with Yubico to offer a multi-factor authentication solution as well as installation and configuration services to customers looking to address their authentication requirements as it pertains to compliance and security standards. PCI-DSS requires organizations to include at least two-factor authentication to be used for administrative and management access to applications and infrastructure components involved with the processing of credit card data.
Yubico breaks the authentication price/strength/complexity relationship with the YubiKey technology.
The YubiKey is a hardware authentication token that looks like a small USB memory stick, but it is actually a keyboard. With the command of an integrated touch button, the device can send a time-variant, secure login code as if it was typed in from a keyboard. And because USB-keyboards are standard on all computers the YubiKey works on all platforms and browsers without the need for client software. In addition, Yubico also offers an RFID version which allows users to leverage the same device for physical access, mobile phones or as a strong alternative to RFID cards.
“One of our goals when we started Yubico, was to provide a simple and cost efficient solution for those seeking to meet stronger regulatory requirements” says Stina Ehrensvard, Chief Executive Officer at Yubico. “We are very pleased to partner with T3i, to bring to market their expertise in meeting regulatory requirements combined with our cost efficient and easy to deploy authentication solution”.
“T3i is excited to have Yubico as a key remediation partner. They have established themselves as a unique and attractive solution for customers trying to address authentication requirements cost effectively while minimizing the impact on their organization", said Jerry Wyble, CEO of T3i, "and combined with T3i's expertise with regulatory compliances and the PCI Data Security Standard, customers will be able to achieve maximum value from their investment and make the compliance process manageable.”
