|Set Up Your Public Key Infrastructure Within One Hour
Biodata PKI Business Server for Small and Medium Enterprises.
Singapore, 24 July, 2001.
- Biodata Information Technology, the fastest growing IT security company worldwide,
today introduces PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) Business Server, a complete PKI
solution for small and medium enterprises. This package enables companies to set
up a full PKI environment for up to 500 users within one hour.
It also includes a certificate authority with a web-based administration console as well as a HTTP keyserver.
Large companies often invest millions of dollars in PKI systems, many of which take months to set up. While such an investment might be necessary for multinational corporations with a highly distributed environment, it is clearly an over-kill for small and medium sized companies. Biodata Information Technology introduces a complete and flexible solution to set up one's own PKI all within just one hour.
The set-up process is hassle-free as Biodata PKI Business Server is optimized for Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Exchange environments. It allows central generation and certification of keys and certificates. During set-up, the administrator answers a set of basic questions required to generate the CA (Certificate Authority) root keys. After this, the PKI solution is ready for use. Biodata PKI Business Server runs on Microsoft Windows 2000 servers and integrates seamlessly in any Windows-based infrastructure.
PKI is one of the fastest growing markets in the IT security field. Growing at an impressive average rate of 46% to 2005, the market for PKI is set to reach US$ 2.6 billion worldwide. According to Mr KK Chan, Country Manager, Singapore, "Small and medium companies are increasingly automating their supply chains and increasing the functionality of their branch office services like Web-based catalogues. With this fast and flexible PKI solution, companies are able to enjoy secure extranets and branch office connectivity seamlessly."
