AppSwing Limited, a leading wireless data solutions provider, and Deepnet Technologies, a leading provider of strong, two-factor authentication solutions, today announced a strategic technology partnership agreement. The agreement allows AppSwing to integrate Deepnet Mobile 2×2, a soft token authentication solution into AppSwing’s applications providing mobile data solutions that connect remote workers and business partners to key data and processes.
AppSwing offers a unique solution extending Windows applications to any wireless device such as BlackBerry, Pocket PC and other PDAs and Smart Phones. Integrating Deepnet Mobile 2×2 into AppSwing´s real-time connected handheld applications, results in an offering that provides secure access to a variety of enterprise business solutions.
Deepnet Mobile 2×2 provides an OTP token-based, two-factor and two-way authentication solution which works on PDA, Smartphone and BlackBerry Wireless Handheldtm. The OTP is compliant with the OATH (Open Authentication) One-Time Password standard. The solution offers security, mobility and usability, allowing customers secure remote VPN access anywhere at anytime, without carrying any additional hardware devices.
“AppSwing´s real-time connected handheld applications provide access to office-based systems, and security is a key concern for our customers. The increased security that we now can offer with Deepnet Mobile 2×2 tokens provides an increasing number of exciting application possibilities for AppSwing and it will also set us apart from our competitors. Our customers will benefit greatly by combining such powerful security with the convenience of portability” said Neil Thompson, CEO of AppSwing.
“We are very excited about working with AppSwing” said Yurong Lin, CEO of Deepnet Technologies. “AppSwing’s mobile application users will now be able to benefit from the strong user authentication Deepnet’s Mobile 2×2 solution delivers. Our solution will improve confidence for organisations wishing to move towards application mobility and hopefully AppSwing will be able to extend their offering to businesses that have previously shied away due to security risks”.
AppSwing will demonstrate the new solution at Nokia’s booth at the Citrix iForum 2006 in Edinburgh on 3-5 July. Visitors will be shown how secure, on-demand access can turn this new IT reality into a tremendous opportunity for organisations.
