REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- Ingrian™ Networks, the leader in application security for Internet-powered businesses, today announced a strategic alliance with Cryptomathic, a leading provider of e-Security solutions. The two companies have joined forces to provide an innovative solution that allows remote users to carry out secure, signed transactions from nearly any terminal or mobile device connected to the Internet. One of the major challenges faced by e-Business participants is the ability to effectively provide secure, truly mobile transactions as well as non-repudiation by means of encryption and digital signatures. Traditionally, this capability has only been possible through the installation of specialized client software onto individual PCs and/or the combination of dedicated physical tokens (such as smart cards). These two requirements have prevented users from conducting their banking business or other mobile transactions from mobile devices and PCs other than their own, and often necessitate the distribution of smart cards as well as smart card readers. In addition, the difficulties that surround management of software and hardware on the client-side have significantly increased the support and maintenance costs of those applications. With the Ingrian-Cryptomathic joint solution these limitations no longer exist."The perfect match of the Cryptomathic Signer and the Ingrian application security solution to any client on the Internet is the best thing that has happened in security since the introduction of the chip card, perhaps even better,” said Peter Landrock, Executive Chairman of Cryptomathic. “It is a virtual chip card for private keys, which is completely tamper resistant and may be used anywhere. And even better, it will make PKI transparent to the user." The joint solution from Ingrian and Cryptomathic has the capability to offer strongly authenticated, signed transactions to remote users with zero client footprint. Cryptomathic Signer stores the user’s private signature key data, allowing them to conduct electronic transactions and create digital signatures at any time and from any PC or device with a browser. Ingrian’s application security products secure all client transactions, in transit and storage, and can be seamlessly added to any existing application infrastructure. Ingrian Networks Inc.
