Softek signs distie agreement

Authentication is us

Brief Security distributor Softek has been appointed a distie for authentication company Deepnet Security.

Mike Bienvenu, technical director at Softek, welcomed the deal and said: "Two-way authentication is absolutely essential in these days of phishing and identity theft.

"The old hardware security token will now start to be replaced with new, easier to manage methods of authentication, such as voice, type and virtual smart cards. What could be as easy for customers as generating a security token by using an application on their mobile phone?" ®
