-- Partnership Delivers SMS Mobile Authentication to Tieto Customers
HELSINKI, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SSH Communications Security, known the world over as the inventors of the SSH protocol, today announced that it has signed a service provider agreement with Tieto, a major Nordic integrator for its Tectia MobileID solution. The agreement will give Tieto an additional outlet to provide a modern, cost-effective, mobile authentication platform as a service to its customers.
"We are delighted for the opportunity to work closely together with Tieto on this initiative," said Samuli Siltanen, head of mobile authentication for SSH. "Our customers continue to move their infrastructure into hosted environments, and Tectia MobileID delivers a flexible authentication solution that can be hosted in a private cloud without compromising security. Customers are seeking convenience, availability and secure authentication while keeping costs down, and Tectia MobileID helps them exceed these goals."
The scope of the agreement permits Tieto to gradually migrate the current base of its authenticating users to Tectia MobileID. Tectia MobileID is deployed with over 50 major accounts worldwide and supports a significant and growing customer base. The technology was a 2011 finalist for SC Magazine's "Most Innovative Technology of the Year" award.
"Tectia MobileID delivers the most superior ease of deployment and maintenance in any SMS authentication solution currently available in the market," said Siltanen. "With easy integration into existing Active Directory infrastructures, the Tectia MobileID solution can be deployed for customers literally overnight. In addition, MobileID provides a painless transition away from existing unwieldy token-based solutions. It just works."
