<p>RSA Security Inc. (Nasdaq: RSAS) has announced RSA® Certificate Manager 6.6 and RSA® Registration Manager 6.6, which deliver greater functionality and ease-of-use to customers deploying comprehensive digital certificate solutions. With an improved credential lifecycle management process, enhanced scalability and superior deployment flexibility, RSA Security’s new offering will help companies efficiently introduce and rapidly expand their use of digital certificates.</p>
<p>The new versions of RSA Certificate Manager and RSA Registration Manager (formerly RSA Keon® software) also provide simplified methods for customers pairing digital certificates with solutions such as smart cards, USB-based two-factor authentication tokens, and enterprise single sign-on.</p>
<p>RSA Security’s portfolio of identity and access management solutions – including the new RSA SecurID® SID800 USB token and RSA® Sign-On Manager enterprise single sign-on software – provide organizations with the ability to easily extend investments in digital certificates. Specific benefits made possible by new capabilities in RSA Certificate Manager 6.6 and RSA Registration Manager 6.6 include:</p>
<p>• Credential Lifecycle Management: RSA Certificate Manager 6.6 delivers lifecycle management improvements, including self-service functionality and simplified certificate renewal management, which reduce administrative costs and time associated with managing digital certificates.</p>
<p>• High Availability and Scalability: RSA Certificate Manager 6.6 delivers higher performance and availability, improving customers’ ability to maintain business continuity. In addition, the product enables companies to deploy multiple RSA Certificate Managers in tandem, scaling to millions of users and hundreds of thousands of certificates per day.</p>
<p>• Adaptive Deployment Capabilities: RSA Registration Manager 6.6 supports the addition of multiple certificate authorities, thereby ensuring that it can continuously adapt to the changing requirements of large enterprises’ certificate infrastructures. It can also issue certificates for different applications according to customisable policies, providing customers with the flexibility required to more broadly deploy certificates.</p>
<p>“By enhancing our line of digital certificate solutions, RSA Security hopes to enable organisations to gain the greatest short- and long-term benefits associated with on-premise digital certificate management,” said Sebastian Moore, Regional Vice President - Asia Pacific of RSA Security. “These solutions also extend our position as a leader in offering our customers flexibility and choice in authentication methods.”</p>
