Up until now, entities had to choose between features, speed, and limited selection in digital identity assurance software. At 90meter we have learned that the cliché the customer is always right is something that is lacking in the Information Assurance arena. So how do you build “Commercial Off-The Shelf” products? We do it by listening to our customers and a goal of continuous improvement. 90meter is never satisfied as the target and markets are always moving. We understand that particular entities want every whistle and bell known to man included in our software. We also understand that there is a significant portion of the population that just wants the software to work and does not want to be confused by whistles and bells. Building security in this dichotomy is a difficult task and 90meter understands that “one size” does NOT fit all.
With shrinking budgets and growing management costs, software needs to be less expensive and simpler to manage over the long haul. 90meter’s minidriver middleware takes into account that the majority of users have simple identification, authentication and authorization needs utilizing smart cards or tokens. Forward deployed and remote employees face speed issues when authenticating, signing or encrypting communication. With this in mind 90meter built software that is fast and secure without all the confusion.
Thales TCT’s Smart Card SC650 and 90Meter’s Hi-Assurance Middleware together provide the foundation for a robust, U.S.-developed, high assurance authentication solution.
