SecureAuth Expands Channel to Managed Service Providers

Monthly Subscription-Based Licensing of SecureAuth Identity Enforcement Platform to Drive New Opportunities for MSPs; Provides Purchasing Flexibility for Customers

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 29, 2011) - SecureAuth Corporation today announced the debut of its Managed Service Provider (MSP) Partner Program. The program was specifically designed to meet the growing demand from service providers to offer customers an identity enforcement platform as a scalable, managed solution to secure and simplify access to cloud, on-premise, VPN and mobile resources. Now MSPs can offer SecureAuth's IEP solution that includes SSO, strong authentication, and IdM services on a convenient monthly licensing basis with no upfront costs. Components of this innovative program include technical training, 24×7 support, lead sharing, co-marketing and sales support, and access to an online partner portal.

SecureAuth IEP services can be easily configured to secure and simplify access to any application or resource. For example, SecureAuth partners can offer any combination of two-factor authentication services to prevent phishing and password attacks, SSO services to increase user productivity, and IdM services to reduce management and administrative overhead. MSPs can host multiple customers on a single virtual or hardware appliance in a shared (or "multi-tenant") model, providing attractive economies of scale. For larger accounts, or for customers with special security considerations, MSPs can also offer SecureAuth IEP in a dedicated or on-premise managed model.

Founded by bankers in 1963, Hutchinson, Kansas-based service provider DCI (www.datacenterinc.com) provides full-service bank technology and processing solutions to the financial industry nationwide. To meet FFIEC regulations for strong authentication for its client banks consumer and corporate customers who use its iCore360 Inter@ct:™ service offerings, DCI selected the SecureAuth Identity Enforcement platform to protect users from phishing and password attacks. "We honor DCI's mission every day through a close connection and responsibility to our customers and a strong ethical approach to service and support and expect no less from our technology partners," stated Daren Fankhauser, DCI chief architect, TSO. "SecureAuth always goes the extra mile to help in whatever way needed. Furthermore, SecureAuth IEP is rock solid. We simply don't get many calls from our clients from the moment their customers enroll and start using strong authentication to access iCore360 Inter@ct:™ service offerings. It's a simple set up and forget -- it's that transparent, solid, and easy to use."

"We value our relationship with DCI who is a highly respected service provider for the banking industry. Our MSP Program is built with the service provider in mind, offering a simple pricing model and the strong support that they demand from vendor partners," said Craig Lund, SecureAuth co-founder and CEO. "We work hand-in hand with our partners to provide a wealth of new business opportunities and cost-effective security and productivity choices to protect their customers' critical information assets regardless of where applications reside, on-premise or in the cloud."

The program enables MSPs to secure and simplify access to cloud, web and VPN resources with integrated two-factor authentication, SSO and IdM in a variety of adaptable configurations to address the demands of a wide range of market segments. With SecureAuth IEP, Managed Security Service providers can offer services that include:

  • Comprehensive authentication to protect against password and phishing attacks and unauthorized access to on-premise and cloud applications
  • Integrated secure SSO to enhance security and increase user productivity while reducing the deployment burden on IT

  • Opportunity for new and recurring sources of revenue
  • Dynamic SecureAuth instances help scale business with the creation of discrete policies for each new application/client from a single virtual or hardware appliance
