Company integrates RSA BSAFE® encryption software and RSA SecurID® two-factor authentication into secure remote backup and storage services, and RSA® e-Sign software into trusted e-commerce services
BEDFORD, Mass., July 28, 2003 – RSA Security Inc. (NASDAQ: RSAS), the most trusted name in e-security®, announced that CryptCOM Securities, Inc. has launched a series of innovative new remote backup, e-commerce and file transfer services protected by a wide range of RSA Security encryption and authentication solutions. CryptCOM’s services provide small and medium-sized companies with the trusted e-commerce and business continuity capabilities that had previously only been available to large corporations with extensive IT budgets.
CryptCOM’s new services are designed to enable customers to securely backup and store vital electronic files and critical documents at remote locations and easily and securely access them from any authorized web browser. For small businesses continuing to move transactions to the web, CryptCOM also delivers RSA e-Sign services that empower individuals to digitally sign documents, helping make online transactions legally binding. With these innovative services, CryptCOM helps businesses of any size to streamline their processes and reduce their costs.
“At CryptCOM, our mission is to make state-of-the-art information security and business continuity accessible to the thousands of small and medium-sized businesses that require these services,” said Joe Stein, vice president and CTO for CryptCOM. “With RSA Security identity and access management technology as a foundation, we can now deliver unique services and software that match the budgets and the needs of individuals, small businesses and even large enterprises. In essence, we have become the equalizer that bridges the security gap between individuals and large corporations.”
In the aftermath of the 9-11 attacks, business continuity has become a priority, and organizations have been investing in secure remote backup facilities to ensure that their IT department can restore mission-critical systems if their physical headquarters suffers severe damage. Many small and medium-sized enterprises do not have the resources to develop these capabilities. CryptCOM’s service provides these organizations with secure remote backup and storage for a reasonable monthly fee that is based on the volume of data stored and the level of the security desired. Using RSA BSAFE encryption technology, CryptCOM protects users’ data throughout the entire transfer, storage and access process. For companies who require an additional level of security, CryptCOM offers RSA SecurID two-factor authentication to help ensure only authorized individuals can access information protected by the service.
In addition to business continuity services, CryptCOM also provides e-commerce services for businesses and individuals who want to leverage the power and convenience of the Internet as a medium for conducting high-value business transactions. The CryptCOM team has incorporated RSA e-Sign software into a service that enables customers to use legally binding digital signatures with electronic documents to help streamline business processes and complete critical legal transactions faster. Since RSA e-Sign software is based on globally recognized digital signature technology, CryptCOM customers can use the service to seal electronic transactions worldwide.
“For small and medium-sized businesses, e-Business represents significant opportunities for organizations to realize new ways to generate revenues and create other operational efficiencies, for competitive advantage,” said Victor Chang, vice president of the Developer Solutions division at RSA Security. “RSA Security’s two-factor authentication, encryption and digital signature technologies provide the identity and access management foundation upon which e-business must be built in order to create trust online.”
