ActivIdentity 4TRESS AAA Server for Remote Access Enables Secure Telecommuting for H1N1 Flu-Affected Employees

Secure Remote Access Critical for Business Continuity During Pandemic, Severe Weather and Other Disruptive Events

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - October 13, 2009) - ActivIdentity Corporation (NASDAQ: ACTI), a global leader in strong authentication and credential management, today announced a new licensing option designed to help companies secure access to business-critical data and applications for employees who need to work remotely due to the predicted H1N1 pandemic outbreak or other disruptive events that prevent employees from getting to the office. ActivIdentity 4TRESS™ AAA Server for Remote Access supports text-based One-Time Passwords (OTP) that enable organizations to expand user licenses during any business disruption, including the predicted Swine Flu outbreak, severe and extreme weather or transit strikes.

IT organizations of any size can benefit from ActivIdentity 4TRESS AAA Server for Remote Access because it lets companies implement a secure access method quickly, thereby limiting the negative effects of any disruptive event on business operations. The new licensing option is available to companies with or without a disaster recovery plan and adds strong authentication to ensure strong security and compliance.

According to Challenger, Gray & Christmas, a large executive outplacement firm, a potential outbreak of the H1N1 Swine Flu pandemic this fall or winter would significantly increase corporate absenteeism and hinder business travel. The result could be detrimental to businesses in an already weakened economy. The firm's top technology recommendation to counter the negative impact of the pandemic is to implement a company-wide telecommuting option.

"ActivIdentity 4TRESS AAA Server for Remote Access can help organizations more fully prepare for business disruptions caused by pandemics and other events with a secure remote access solution that authenticates workers into the corporate network so they can remain productive," said Michael Sotnick, executive vice president of worldwide sales and field operations at ActivIdentity. "This option is a cost effective part of an organization's business continuity planning and can be deployed quickly."

ActivIdentity 4TRESS AAA Server for Remote Access is a standards-based solution for strong authentication. The server features simple installation, deployment and administration and supports a broad range of authentication methods and devices such as hardware tokens, soft tokens, SMS OTP, USB tokens and smart cards.

Customers can take advantage of a low cost license option that can support them through even a lengthy business disruption. For details, contact ActivIdentity at
