New York, NY, August 04, 2017 — Versasec, the leader in smart card management systems, today introduced version 4.9 of its vSEC:CMS S-Series identity and access management solution.
This updated version of the company’s flagship product includes a variety of user experience and performance improvements around remote security device management (RSDM), interface improvements and enhanced security features. vSEC:CMS 4.9 also supports the SafeTrust-PIV smart card and extends its lead in supporting the greatest number of smart cards in the industry.
Other significant improvements in vSEC:CMS S-Series Version 4.9 include the following:
* RSDM device synchronization makes it easier to synchronize repository information in vSEC:CMS when there are changes detected on the device, including manually destroying a virtual smart card, or changing the computer name.
* A FORCE UP broadcast mode on RSDM clients optimizes bandwidth usage.
* Improved Help and showing the number of pending tasks in the main menu bar.
* Support for challenge/response when performing offline PUC based unblock on PIV-enabled devices.
* Support for SCP03 and GlobalPlatform key change, strengthening the security of Java Card management and offering support for smart card printer HID-Fargo SDK version 2.1 to enable improved batch processes.
* Support for the SafeTrust-PIV on Placard.
* UniCERT RA credentials can now be HSM-based, for increased security.
* The Data Export functionality is now also available at smart card issuance, enabling functions such as printing PIN mailers.
* An optional external permission check, dependent upon Microsoft AD group membership, enables more granular access control.
* New SQL schema for all vSEC:CMS related database tables, enables better scalability and larger data sets, and new server-side SOAP API to better integrate vSEC:CMS into helpdesk application workflows, including PIN Unblock.
“We continue to improve our remote management capabilities and user interfaces to streamline identity and access management operations for our customers,” said Joakim Thorén, Versasec CEO. “With vSEC:CMS 4.9, we’ve added support for a number of devices, providing customers with increased flexibility to choose the best smart card and devices for their organizations.”
