NEWTON, MA--(Marketwire - March 27, 2008) - ChosenSecurity, Inc., a leading provider of On-Demand PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) security services, today announced a partnership with Aladdin Knowledge Systems (NASDAQ: ALDN), an information security leader specializing in authentication, software digital rights management and content security, to integrate ChosenSecurity's TC Enterprise ID™ and associated digital certificates with Aladdin's smart card-based eToken™ devices.

The agreement enables organizations of any size to use ChosenSecurity's On-Demand PKI security services in a highly portable fashion to authorize, encrypt and digitally sign sensitive data, even when working remotely. ChosenSecurity provides On-Demand PKI services for organizations of any size to cost-effectively deploy authentication, digital document signing and encryption solutions globally between their employees, partners and customers. TC Enterprise ID is a scalable solution for managing the lifecycle of multi-functional certificates and digital identities.

Joint customers can now use Aladdin eTokens to store digital certificates managed by TC Enterprise ID, making digital certificates easily portable and providing individual users the convenience of being able to access corporate data from wherever they are working.

"Delivering portable, strong authentication solutions to organizations issuing digital certificates to enable secure access and transmission of confidential information addresses a critical requirement of our customers," said Dean Coclin, Vice President of Business Development at ChosenSecurity. "Aladdin, as a strategic partner, enhances the versatility of ChosenSecurity's solutions with the most innovative, comprehensive, and easy to manage credentialing technology."

"ChosenSecurity's strength is the ability to reduce the complexity, cost, and ongoing investment in deploying a PKI -- bringing strong authentication to a much larger audience that could not previously afford and manage their own CA (Certificate Authority) and PKI implementation," said Phil Pavay, Vice President of Global Business Development at Aladdin Knowledge Systems. "Together, we're offering customers -- especially those with widely distributed operations -- a highly portable strong authentication solution that allows organizations to transact business globally with a high level of confidence."
