HELSINKI, Finland and WELLESLEY, Mass., April 11, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tectia Corporation (Helsinki:TEC1V), the market maker in real-time information security solutions, announced today its certification as a Juniper networks Technology Alliance Partner based on demonstrated interoperability between the company's Tectia MobileID two-factor, tokenless authentication solution and the market-leading Juniper Networks SA Series SSL VPN Appliance for secure anytime, anywhere access to corporate resources and applications.

Customers and partners can now benefit from a secure and easy to use tokenless two-factor authentication solution for their SA Series SSL VPN Appliances while reducing the costs associated with implementing and maintaining traditional token based two-factor authentication methods.

"Companies need to provide a global workforce of geographically disparate and highly mobile employees, partners and vendors with access to critical network infrastructure," said Samuli Siltanen, Director of Mobile Authentication for Tectia. "At the same time, they need to address the growing number of advanced threats that present a genuine risk to information integrity through unauthorized access," he added.

In a global marketplace, traditional authentication does not provide the level of security, scalability or ease of use necessary to meet the demands of today's businesses. Customers are unable to rely on these solutions to truly protect their infrastructure and IT teams struggle to keep up with the administrative workload required to implement and maintain these complex systems. To make matters worse, organizations using these legacy solutions are paying a premium for a solution that often frustrates their end users and makes it more difficult for them to do their job.

Tectia MobileID is the next generation in two-factor authentication enabling organizations to:

  • Truly protect the data network against unauthorized access with a fully randomized password engine that eliminates the risk of an attacker gaining access to sensitive seed record information
  • Utilize tokenless authentication with one-time passwords delivered simply via SMS to the end users mobile device
  • Reduce IT workload and hard costs associated with managing hundreds or thousands of hardware or software tokens
  • Virtually eliminate the need for token related help desk support or self service
  • Rapidly activate new users without the need for provisioning, training or specialized experience
  • Eliminate man-in-the-middle attacks by utilizing a secondary data transfer channel to deliver the password
  • Meet or exceed compliance mandates including PCI, SOX, HIPAA, the European Data Privacy Directive and others

"We are pleased to welcome Tectia to our Technology Alliance Program," said Rich Campagna, Director of Product Management, Junos(R) Pulse Business Unit, Juniper Networks. "The combination of our SA Series SSL VPN Appliances and Tectia MobileID enables mutual customers to benefit from an SMS-based two-factor authentication solution that eliminates the need for physical tokens to lower costs, improve ease of use and enhance scalability."
