idOnDemand Extends Free RSA SecurID Token Trade-up Program
PLEASANTON, Calif., June 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — idOnDemand, the pioneer in smart identification, today announced it is extending its Token Trade-up Program to help companies affected by the latest breaches of RSA’s SecurIDÃ‚® tokens with a free trade-up to a secure smart card based solution. SecurIDÃ‚® users can trade in their compromised tokens for free in exchange for an idOnDemand SmartID, providing organizations a no-risk opportunity to deploy a standards-based, highly secure identity card. The program has been extended through December 31, 2011.
Companies eligible to participate in the Token Trade-up Program are those currently using RSA SecurID tokens. Participants will receive a free credit for every token turned in (up to 100 tokens), applied towards idOnDemand SmartID cards.
idOnDemand smart cards provide an unmatched security paradigm that as opposed to a token, have a unique private key that is securely protected. An idOnDemand SmartID consolidates multiple credentials into a single, secure identification card that replaces multiple building and IT access, visual and virtual identities, as well as provides secure remote access and mobile authentication. idOnDemand’s service-based model provides identity management at a lower cost and with more control than traditional in-house systems.
“Why use an authentication device based on twenty year-old technology, when today’s smart card (such as the idOnDemand SmartID) can do so much more: one card includes all the capabilities necessary to secure access to all corporate assets, including IT systems, building systems, mobile devices and even to encrypt email and documents,” says Dave Kearns, Identity Management and Networking analyst and author of “What’s Next for SecurIDÃ‚® Customers?“
How the program works
Companies interested in exchanging their RSA tokens for idOnDemand SmartID cards may simply fill out the online registration form and an idOnDemand representative will contact them within 24 hours. The first year is free and in subsequent years, customers only pay the annual service fee for the users that remain active.
With this promotion, idOnDemand service includes:
- Globally-trusted managed Certificate Authority
- FIPS 201 compatible smart card
- Building access (HID, Indala, Honeywell compatible and MIFARE, PIV, ISO14443)
- Support for all major VPN routers
- Enrollment portal with graphical personalization
“In the wake of the RSA security breach and the unprecedented attacks on government and corporate systems connected to the Internet, it is now paramount that organizations aggressively protect their access environments,” said Terry Gold, Vice President of Sales, North America. “With its multi-function use, an idOnDemand SmartID can provide organizations with a secure, convenient identification and access solution for its employees, partners and contractors.”
