CRYPTOCard, a leading provider of two-factor authentication technology, announced that U.S. distributor, Pegasus Technologies has recruited East Coast-based software vendor and managed service provider, Cool Cat Inc. to its Partner Program. Cool Cat Inc., which has been growing rapidly for the last two years, will provide CRYPTO-MAS, a managed authentication service, to customers in the U.S., Canada, Virgin Islands, Brazil and Europe.
Why Managed Authentication Service?
With analyst firms like Gartner estimating up to 30% of help desk costs attributed to password management, the CRYPTOCard Managed Authentication Service (CRYPTO-MAS) allows businesses to free up resources, remove up-front investment requirements and remove the risks associated with static passwords, at the same time delivering a more reliable service to remote access users.

"With CRYPTO-MAS, I can provide my customers with the most robust two-factor authentication technology as a managed service, which reduces the costs and logistics associated with managing multiple users both internally and externally."
“As a CRYPTOCard distributor, we partner with VARs and system integrators to help deliver the most cost effective and scalable security technology on the market,” said Matthew Tucker, CEO and President, Pegasus Technologies. “CRYPTO-MAS allows VARs and managed service providers, like Cool Cat Inc., to strengthen their customers’ security posture. CRYPTOCard’s managed authentication service applies best security practices, while lowering the administration efforts and costs compared to the use of a more traditional in-house solution.”
