How Companies Can Manage Strong Authentication Intelligently
by Mike Davies - VeriSign - Monday, 8 May 2006.
The security industry has recognised that the simple handling of strong authentication by users represents a significant reason for their acceptance and continued success in the market. While the smart card has so far been unable to assert itself as a carrier of digital certificates everywhere, the USB-compatible tokens are becoming increasingly popular.
But which ever technology path customer chose, as an industry we have to ensure we provide our customers with solutions to their problems. We know that one of their key problems is trying to mobilise workforces so our duty is to ensure that all organisations have secure access so they can continue to flourish in the 21st century. Now is the time for us all to act because stronger is most definitely better.
