It is more critical than ever for companies to increase the security and integrity of their valuable information. In order to help our joint customers better protect their information, we are pleased to be working with ARX to achieve interoperability between RSA SecurID technology and the CoSign digital signature solution
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 3, 2008
ARX, the leading provider of digital signature solutions, announced today that it has joined the RSA Secured partner program, certifying interoperability between its CoSign Digital Signatures and the RSA SecurID® two-factor authentication solution developed by RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC). ARX and RSA can now provide joint customers with an interoperable solution composed of a convenient and standard digital signature solution with strong authentication - providing the benefit of an additional layer of security for digital signatures.
Interoperability with RSA SecurID two-factor authentication is designed to enhance the existing CoSign digital signature (standard electronic signature) signer-authentication schemes. The RSA SecurID system is as simple to use as entering a password, but significantly more secure. Used in conjunction with RSA® Authentication Manager software, an RSA SecurID authenticator functions like an ATM card for a company network, requiring users to identify themselves with two unique factors -- something they know (a password or PIN), and something they have (an RSA SecurID hardware or software authenticator) -- before they are granted access to secure business information.
"ARX selected RSA SecurID, in part, because of the appeal of its interoperability with a broad number of platforms and technologies to customers," said John Marchioni, VP Business Development, Americas, ARX. "Since CoSign does not require ARX-signature-software installations on the user's PC, RSA SecurID is an ideal complement that further supports CoSign's centralized-management design."
"It is more critical than ever for companies to increase the security and integrity of their valuable information. In order to help our joint customers better protect their information, we are pleased to be working with ARX to achieve interoperability between RSA SecurID technology and the CoSign digital signature solution," said D.J. Long, Senior Director, Corporate Development at RSA. "Our organizations are committed to help mitigate risk to sensitive information throughout its lifecycle to ensure that it is always an asset and not a liability, allowing organizations to focus on accelerating their business objectives."
