YubiKey 5 adds to portfolio of supported security tokens for SmartLogon™

Our software for strong 2-factor authentication supports a wide range of different security tokens. Since this year, the YubiKey 5 from the company Yubico also complements the portfolio of supported tokens. Thus digitronic takes a step towards “passwordless authentication”, but as usual without requiring a PKI or certificates.

The highlight: Secure logon via this method works in both local and domain accounts without any server extension or network availability.

Prototype of the new WinTelex version is created

The first prototype of our new WinTelex version emerges from the concept creation: Optimized for desktop and mobile devices. A later control via apps is planned.

Launch of the new SmartToken app

Stop password jungle and card clutter: SmartToken is an app for your smartphone that provides you with virtual security tokens for secure authentication to the operating system or specialist applications. In combination with the 2-factor authentication solution SmartLogon™, secure and simple authentication is possible without any additional hardware. The new app is now available for free download from the App Store and Google Play Store.

digitronic Formal communication

Delivering messages across national borders, within urgently defined deadlines with “guaranteed receipt” is a cornerstone of police tactical leadership. digitronic proves itself to be a continuous development and operating partner that assumes overall responsibility for a police procedure from a single source. With the implementation of the “Georedundancy” project, the risk of failure of the formal communication system EPOST810 has been significantly reduced over the last few years. digitronic is also facing up to the rapid pace of development of software technologies in 2018 and will meet future user requirements in a practical manner.

digitronic meets the requirements of IT security in the healthcare sector

Healthcare institutions classified under CRITIS must act by June 2019. From May 2018, the European Data Protection Basic Regulation (EU DSGVO) will also come into force. In order to comply with data protection and professional regulations, the requirements for IT security are also increasing in the healthcare sector. With our all-in-one security packages, we are helping hospitals and other medical facilities to better meet legal requirements. The technical basis of the packages is the award-winning, team-capable encryption of data on network drives HiCrypt™ 2.0 and the 2-factor authentication Secure Logon™ 2.0.

digitronic UMS

Contrary to various forecasts, the EMS service “fax” is still an important part of corporate and government communication. In the midst of the conversion from ISDN to VoIP, digitronic’s unified messaging technology has proven itself for the provision of the services Fax/VoiceMail and SMS. Large computer centers, industry and public authorities are using the increased service competence and commission digitronic, for example, to provide nationwide end users with an alternative delivery in the form of mass “Print over IP delivery”. In 2018, digitronic will be used by major customers for the first time.

Award ceremony Saxon State Prizes for Innovation 2017

For the 19th time already, groundbreaking ideas and inventions of Saxon companies are honored with the Saxon State Prize for Innovation. digitronic was among the 10 best with Secure Logon™ 2.0 (2-factor authentication). Our innovation combines “possession” and “knowledge” to a secure and user-friendly solution. The possession of a “security key” that cannot be forged – such as a key fob, smart card or now the “prepared smartphone” and the knowledge of a PIN lead to a significant increase in security while simplifying the use at the same time.

Secure Logon™ 2.0 – Milestone for compliance-compliant data security

With the new development of Secure Logon™ 2.0 and the market release, instead of complex passwords, a PIN can be securely stored on a digitronic security token to authenticate on a PC, a network drive or a remote desktop connection (RDP). This leads to a considerable saving of time and consequently also costs. As a “comfort firecracker” for administrators, both the storage and the forwarding of several identities to remote environments via CRED-UI is possible without additionally installing Secure Logon™ 2.0 on the target systems.

MyCappTM: one app -all devices -all use cases

MyCappTM is an app that shifts digital confidentiality into a logical, device-independent layer. The solution can be extended in its functionality by companies themselves and thus reconciles the business use of private end devices with the data protection guidelines of companies.

HiCrypt™ 2.0 – continuation of a success story

With HiCrypt™ 2.0 as its successor product, the encryption software HiCrypt™, which will be successfully launched on the market in 2012, digitronic consistently meets the demand for even more protection of confidential and secret data.
