ActivIdentity Launches First-Ever Credential Management Appliance to Stop Password-Gathering Malware and Other Threats

Industry’s First Solution to Make Managing Smart Cards as Simple as One-Time
Password Tokens; 30-minute Installation Sets New Industry Standard

Fremont, Calif., Nov. 22, 2010 – ActivIdentity Corporation
<http://actividentity.com/>  (NASDAQ: ACTI), a global leader in intelligent
identity assurance, today introduced the ActivID  Credential Management
System (CMS) Appliance
<http://www.actividentity.com/solutions/enterprisesolutions/> . The
industry’s first-ever credential management appliance will enable
medium-sized companies to quickly deploy smart cards and smart USB tokens
for simple, secure authentication into desktops, VPNs, applications and
building access systems. As the cornerstone of the ActivIdentity Universal
Enterprise Access solution, the ActivID Credential Management System
Appliance will reduce the risk of network breaches, compliance problems and
financial liabilities for organisations in a variety of markets including
finance, technology, healthcare, energy and manufacturing.

“With recent studies showing that almost half of network breaches result
from stolen or weak credentials, secure identity assurance is more critical
to business today than it ever has been,” said Grant Evans, chairman and CEO
of ActivIdentity. “By offering a simple credential management appliance that
can be installed in under thirty minutes, we are bringing the power of one
secure credential for desktop, network and physical access to mid-sized
organisations, helping them improve security and meet compliance
requirements.”

By replacing hard-to-remember, easy-to-guess and expensive-to-manage
passwords with certificate-based smart cards and USB tokens, customers are
much better protected against the theft of user credentials, including
password-stealing malware.

“More and more companies ranging in size from 500 to 10,000 employees are
demanding an easy and affordable secure credential management solution,”
said Perry Carpenter, research director of Gartner’s secure business
enablement group. “Identity assurance players looking to compete must
address this key and growing market by including a credential management
appliance as part of their overall solution.”

The ActivIdentity Universal Enterprise Access solution enables organisations
to create and manage one highly secure smart card for each employee to
access digital and physical resources, reducing costs while eliminating
threats. Users benefit from the convenience of using a single credential to
access their desktop, networks, applications and even the buildings where
they work.
