ActivCard Secure Remote Access Solution Shifts the Paradigm from Legacy and Leased Authentication Tokens

New $15 Price And Lifetime Replacement Option For ActivCard Dynamic Password

RSA Conference, SAN FRANCISCO, CA, February 23, 2004–ActivCard Corp. (NASDAQ: ACTI), a global provider of strong authentication and trusted digital identity solutions today announced availability of ActivCard Tokens starting at $15 with a Lifetime Replacement option*.

Historically, one of the primary obstacles to deploying strong authentication has been the high introductory and ongoing costs associated with expensive leased token products that require renewal, re-licensing, and repayment every few years. ActivCard knows the value of strong authentication and addresses the unique needs of IT managers – and is now introducing this business model to reduce the cost and complexity of implementing two-factor authentication.

“ActivCard customers are never burdened with forced licensing renewal of tokens that wastes both time and money. Unlike authenticators from other vendors that can easily reach $70 for each device with no added functionality, our perpetual-license tokens with lifetime replacement start at an affordable price per user,” stated Andy Smith, ActivCard Solutions Marketing Manager. “The convenience and strength of ActivCard one-time-password technology allows organizations to identify users with confidence and certainty.”

With this lower priced token from ActivCard, the cost of the authentication device is reduced substantially for enterprise and government organizations. In addition, ActivCard Secure Remote Access customers purchasing the advanced maintenance option are entitled to lifetime replacement of tokens. Starting at $15, this initial token savings, coupled with the long-term benefits of lifetime replacement, furthers ActivCard’s commitment to cost-efficient digital identity solutions with proven return on investment (ROI).

The ActivCard solutions will be demonstrated in Booth # 1201 at the RSA Conference from February 23 – 26. In addition, the ActivCard Secure Remote Access solution has been nominated for the SC Magazine Reader Trust Awards’ “Best Access Control Solution.” For more information and to vote for this solution, link to:
