University of Oxford selects CRYPTOCard’s two-factor authentication service

To enable secure remote access to its staff

By CBR Staff Writer

The University of Oxford has selected CRYPTOCard’s two-factor authentication service, CRYPTO-MAS, to protect its servers and networks.

CRYPTOCard said that its authentication service will allow Oxford’s staff, who are logging on remotely, to securely access the University’s computer network.

The company said that its CRYPTO-MAS authentication offering secures the digital identities of authorised personnel, ensuring that only authenticated users can access private and sensitive data.

The service simplifies token provisioning, reduces reporting and management overheads and includes a self service portal to aid efficiency.

It allows institutions to choose from the selection of token and tokenless offerings – such as JAVA, BlackBerry and SMS tokens.

University of Oxford head of financial reporting Ben Heath said that the benefits of CRYPTO-MAS are substantial as it allows staff to securely access the system if they have to stay at home for any reason, or need to carry out system testing out of hours.
