CRYPTOCard, a Mac authentication technology developer, announced that it will be demonstrating its CRYPTO-Server 6.4 authentication solution at Macworld Expo 2006 at Booth 1642. CRYPTO-Server 6.4 protects LAN, VPN, web-based (Apache and IIS), and desktop access for OS X (Panther/Tiger).

Now fully compatible with Tiger’s support for Smart Cards, CRYPTOCard adds strength with Apple Keychain Authentication, flexibility with Disconnected Authentication, and helps administrators with support for heterogeneous computing environments.

This upgrade, a native OS X solution, will allow organizations to positively identify users attempting to access a workstation, network, or website via any access point - desktop, LAN, VPN or web-based access. With CRYPTOCard’s ATM-stylelogon, access/authentication is handled with One-PIN-And-You’re-In ease.

CRYPTO-Server 6.4 has several new features, including a new machine to machine architecture, a 2nd authentication for Apple’s KEychain app, client-based ‘Disconnected Authentication’ that can take place when the server is not detected, and support for heterogeneous computing environments with Mac, Windows, Linux and other systems.

Specifically designed to integrate with Tiger’s robust support for smart cards, CRYPTO-Server 6.4 Smart Card Tokens offer organizations the ability to implement a single ‘authenticator’ for photo ID, building, door, and network access.

As a Macworld Expo special, a five-user bundle, the full server software plus five tokens, is available at 50-percent discount for $249.
