RSA broadens reach of RSA SecurID
RSA announced that its RSA SecurID two-factor authentication technology now supports the Java Platform, Micro Edition (Java ME platform) and will soon support Windows Mobile platforms. Smart phones based on these platforms can now be provisioned with a RSA SecurID Software Token, eliminating the need to carry a separate RSA SecurID hardware authenticator.
A mobile device with an RSA SecurID Software Token activated is engineered to provide a convenient mechanism for securely accessing network resources, while bringing confidence, flexibility and choice in strong authentication to consumers and enterprises.
RSA SecurID Software Tokens are now designed to support devices built on the Java ME platform — such as the Nokia Eseries family of business optimized devices powered by Symbian OS 9 with Platform Security and S60 3rd Edition with Java ME platform. With support for the Java ME platform, users can now leverage RSA SecurID software authenticator technology on a brand new class of everyday devices. In addition, RSA SecurID Software Tokens are engineered to now support the latest Windows Mobile 5.0 and 6.0 platforms, utilized by devices such as the soon-to-be-launched Motorola MOTO Q 9h smart phone and handsets available from major mobile service providers.
