CryptoCard on Thursday announced
for Mac OS X, a Managed Authentication Service for Mac OS X. Crypto-MAS is designed for small and medium-sized businesses needing to improve network security.
Crypto-MAS uses a two-factor authentication process — it’s partly dependent on a user-assigned Personal Identification Number (PIN) and partly dependent on a token, in order to access the network.
Crypto-MAS is a subscription-based service that works with CryptoCard’s Crypto-Server, which supports a wide range of authorization nodes, including VPN concentrators, SSL VPNs, firewalls and ISS and Apache Web sites. Crypto-MAS works on Mac OS X, Windows, Red Hat and SuSE operating systems.
