Versasec Launches vSEC:CMS S4.3 Smart Card Lifecycle Management

Versasec Increases Security and Efficiency with Three Key Additional Features - Elliptic Curve Cryptography, Batch Issuance and HSM Support

New York, NY, January 21, 2016 --( Versasec, the leader in smart card management systems, today introduced the vSEC:CMS S-Series v4.3 product line featuring Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC), batch issuance using multiple parallel smart card readers and more functionality and support for Hardware Security Modules (HSM).

Versasec's vSEC:CMS products provide organizations of any size with all the software tools they need to administer and manage the lifecycle of smart cards securely and conveniently.

The main vSEC:CMS S-Series v4.3 features include:
- Support for ECC, a standard for asymmetric key encryption, preferred by many government and enterprise customers. Previous versions of vSEC:CMS only supported RSA cryptography, now customers have more options.
- Support for the leading HSM products: Gemalto/SafeNet Luna and Utimaco.
- New functionality for HSMs, improving migration, backup and availability. This enables IT departments greater flexibility to migrate master keys from an operator smart card, using a vSEC:CMS wizard to a combined environment with both HSMs and operator cards or an HSM-only setup.
- Batch issuance using multiple parallel smart card readers, enabling operators to issue cards without physically inserting and removing each card. This is a low-cost alternative to installing smart card printers, which is also supported by vSEC:CMS.
- New client side programming interface that makes it possible to interact directly with the vSEC:CMS User Self-Service application, thereby enabling customized workflows.

"We continue to improve our vSEC:CMS product and provide organizations with flexible, affordable solutions to manage their smart card lifecycles," said Joakim Thoren, CEO of Versasec. "Version 4.3 allows our customers to integrate the latest technologies like ECC, and supports the leading HSM solutions on the market today."
