LONDON, 12 February 2004: NordicEdge AB, a specialist provider of information security and identity management software and services, has selected Entelegen to lead its charge into the UK market as part of a planned expansion across Europe during 2004. Entelegen is Europe's leading provider of outsourced sales and market acceleration solutions to technology companies and will start promoting solutions from NordicEdge with immediate effect.
Companies today require a strong security solution for mobile users and external parties to access information on the company network. Employees and business partners need access to the companies' resources and information. Most companies security policies for accessing protected resources and information are more advanced than just usernames and passwords. But enabling strong authentication usually involves equipping users with additional devices, like tokens, with a high cost of both acquisition and deployment.
NordicEdge, based in Stockholm, Sweden, develops products that satisfy the needs of flexible access to information, together with the demand to retain integrity and security of the organisation, creating new business opportunities for customers. NordicEdge Identity Manager enables customers to manage information about the identity of employees, contractors, customers, partners and vendors stored in a directory. And NordicEdge OTP (One Time Password) Server solves both the need for strong security and independence from tokens by providing strong authentication using SMS or e-mail to send a "one time password" to the user.
NordicEdge benefits companies through:
- A minimum initial cost which in turn means a quick Return on Investment (ROI)
- Making it possible to publish information/applications with retained security to business partners and/or customers, thus enhancing work processes and reducing cost
- Removing the need to expand the number of internal administrative resources
- Ensuring a rapid and painless roll out to end users
- Independence from tokens
- Increasing the benefits gained from existing directory service deployments
"NordicEdge provides companies with solid security via ubiquitous devices, like mobile phones and e-mail," says Ian Hendry, co-founder and director of Entelegen. "Businesses providing system access to employees and partners waste a fortune each year on buying authentication devices, deploying them, ensuring their IT helpdesks are staffed to handle forgotten passwords or lost tokens - it is all unnecessary. Worse still, none of this squandered budget is in any way making life easier for their users. It is just more passwords and equipment to lose. NordicEdge demonstrates a very rapid Return On Investment in a way I know will excite UK companies."
"Entelegen knows our market very well," says Jens Yhrefors, partner director of NordicEdge. "They have access to first-class resources through senior sales professionals already proven in the information security market. We expect to rapidly gear up our activities with Entelegen to keep track with the success we expect to see through working with them in the UK."
NordicEdge develops powerful applications that enable organisations to protect, manage and distribute business critical information. By offering our customers our products, we contribute to an improved result and decreased costs that in turn leads to an increased competitiveness.
