RSA Security boosts channel with strong authentication appliance

RSA Security (Nasdaq: RSAS), the expert in protecting online identities and digital assets, today announced the availability of the RSA SecurID Appliance throughout Europe. Designed for both small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and larger organisations looking for a manageable and convenient strong authentication solution, the appliance allows resellers to offer a broader choice to their customers. The preconfigured software/hardware solution helps all organisations to achieve levels of IT security formerly only associated with larger enterprises.

As part of its efforts to drive business for the Appliance, RSA Security is looking for a number of new resellers across Europe with experience of implementing security solutions within both large and small businesses and which are well-placed to introduce both existing and new customers to the RSA SecurID Appliance.

The rack-mountable Appliance is simple to configure, deploy and maintain and takes as little as fifteen minutes to install. It is designed to integrate with the majority of leading third-party applications, making it a flexible and cost effective strong authentication solution. Its extensive reporting capabilities also mean that the RSA SecurID Appliance can help companies successfully comply with a variety of regulatory requirements.

The preconfigured solution priced for 10, 25, 50, 100, 150 and 250 users, includes the RSA SecurID Appliance, RSA SecurID tokens, RSA Authentication Manager software and hardware/software support. For larger organisations, multiples of the above user levels are available.

Tim Pickard, area vice president of international marketing, RSA Security, said: The RSA SecurID Appliance can benefit both small to medium-sized businesses and larger enterprises, making it an ideal product for our channel partners to deliver. To fully take advantage of this huge market opportunity we need to recruit more resellers with the right expertise and experience who will help us realise its potential. We are giving resellers a unique opportunity to take advantage of demand for flexible and cost effective strong authentication solutions.

George Anderson, security solutions BDM, Computacenter, said: We believe the RSA SecurID Appliance is a key component of RSA Securitys identity and access management offering. For security integrators like ourselves it represents a great opportunity to offer a faster, easier to deploy strong authentication solution and provide a more cost effective, simpler to manage, low cost of ownership product. Given the increased demands from customers of all sizes to securely mobilise their staff and provide controlled compliant access to both their network and applications we expect to be able to drive significantly more business from taking the RSA SecurID Appliance to market.

The RSA SecurID Appliance is the first in a series of appliance-based solutions from RSA Security, designed to provide organisations with simple, secure and cost-effective authentication solutions.

The Appliance is available from RSA Security authorised distributors throughout Europe, pricing available on request.
