Bluefire Security Technologies, Inc. has joined the RSASecured Partner Program. Additionally, the Bluefire Mobile Security VPN has been awarded RSASecured certification with RSASecurID, signaling its interoperability with industry leading two-factor authentication technology from RSASecurity.
As a result of technical cooperation between Bluefire and RSASecurity under the RSASecuredPartner Program, customers who are mobile device users can authenticate and connect to a computer network from a remote location by using RSASecurID authenticators, such as tokens.
"Our RSASecured certification allows Bluefire customers to enjoy an added level of network security when deploying mobile devices," said Todd Weissman, VP of Business Development for Bluefire. He added, "IT directors and individual users alike should all breathe a bit easier knowing that the perimeters of their networks are better-defended and mobile device connectivity is safer and easier."
The Bluefire Mobile Security VPN is built to IPSec standards, NAT-T enabled and FIPS 140-2 compliant. The user friendly VPN operates across Wi-Fi, LAN, and cellular data networks including GPRS and CDMA. The Bluefire Mobile Security VPN is compatible with most common VPN concentrators including hardware from Cisco and Nortel, and interoperates with other Bluefire Mobile Security products, for comprehensive end-to-end network security.
The RSASecurID system is a widely used two-factor user authentication solution. Used in conjunction with RSAAuthentication Manager software, an RSASecurID authenticator functions like an ATM card for a company network, requiring users to identify themselves with two unique factors before they are granted access to secure business information.
