ActivIdentity Solidifies Cloud Computing Services Initiative

ActivIdentity's cloud computing services initiative enables an alternative delivery

ActivIdentity announced a comprehensive strategy and technology roadmap to enable Managed Security Service Providers to deliver strong authentication and credential management services.

ActivIdentity's cloud computing services initiative enables Managed Security Service Providers to provide an alternative delivery method of infrastructure software to defend against security threats and identity fraud for a variety of vertical markets (e.g., banking and financial services industry, state and local government). In times of economic hardship and a widening information technology skills gap, a subscription-based delivery model is better suited to address the cost pressures of already resource-strapped organizations.

The recent acquisition of CoreStreet solidifies ActivIdentity's cloud computing strategy, as the new subsidiary has existing partnerships with General Dynamics and other service providers that leverage CoreStreet's identity validation product portfolio to deliver managed security services on a subscription basis. New partnering arrangements with other Managed Security Service Providers are expected to follow soon.

"As an element of our long term strategic plan previously outlined, ActivIdentity's go-to-market strategy brings forward a new set of Managed Service Providers, enabling them to create, manage, and authenticate digital identities in the cloud," said Grant Evans, chairman and chief executive officer of ActivIdentity. "Our cloud computing strategy was inspired by feedback from our customers and service providers, indicating a growing desire to move from security solutions to security services. We are not only empowering service providers with this strategy, but the subscription-based pricing model offers our shareholders a more predictable financial business model."

ActivIdentity has extensive experience in helping managed security service providers build credential management cloud computing solutions. As an example, EDS (an HP Company) leveraged ActivIdentity ActivID(TM) Card Management System to deliver a cloud computing service to the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Managed Service Office. The managed services provide U.S. Federal government agencies with HSPD-12 compliant identity management and credentialing solutions that provide end-to-end services to enroll applicants, issue credentials, and provide life cycle management.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change. But what if we could implement and utilize these enterprise tools in a fast and "Non-Disruptive" way, enabling us to glean insights about our business, identify and reduce exposure, risk and liability, and secure business continuity?
