Authasas® selects the established technology market and capital city, Austin, Texas from where to base US operations to address market growth and to increase customer service

We selected Austin, TX based on its successful track record for incubating growing technology companies

Authasas® “Authentication at your Service” announced the opening of US operations in Austin, Texas.

Authasas® is experiencing significant growth in new customer acquisition and deployments of its flagship product, Authasas Advanced Authentication®. Authasas Advanced Authentication® is an authentication framework that supports biometric, smartcard, proximity card, and other multi-factor authentication methods to secure Windows networks and replace weak network passwords.

“We selected Austin, TX based on its successful track record for incubating growing technology companies while also supporting some of the world’s largest, most innovative technology companies such as Dell, Apple, Google, Oracle, and IBM.” - Chris Collier, VP Support and Services - “Austin provides a concentrated pool of talent that we can continue to draw from. It’s what’s best for our customers.”

Authasas® has seen very strong adoption in the US Healthcare market as a means to secure patient health records as required by HIPAA and the HITECH Act. And though security has played a major role in this success, the usability enhancements provided by automating the logon process to clinical applications has been a major contributing factor. Leveraging technology partnerships with Microsoft® and Healthcast® has solidified Authasas’ position as the preferred biometric authentication solution for securing a clinical Single Sign-On implementation.

Other US markets have also shown growth as Authasas® deployments within the financial, manufacturing, and telecommunication markets continue to rise. Authasas Advanced Authentication® is often deployed in conjunction with a single sign-on deployment as a way to secure credential vaults. In 2010 Authasas® established technology partnerships and completed integration with market-leading SSO vendors such as Oracle®, Computer Associates, ActivIdentityTM (now HID Global®), Sentillion®, and Novell®.

“With continued growth forecast for 2011, we decided that it was time to firmly establish our US support and service operations. Authasas® is a global organization doing business on 4 continents, and our customers deserve world-class service,” says Reinier van der Drift, President and CEO.
