vSEC:CMS Supports Virtual Smart Cards on MS Windows 8 Versatile Security proudly announces that management of the TPM-based virtual smart cards introduced in Microsoft Windows 8 have just passed the validation testing in vSEC:CMS T3.1 and is ready to be taken into production.

Stockholm, Sweden, June 26th, 2013 – Versatile Security Sweden AB announces that vSEC:CMS T-Series now officially supports Microsoft Windows 8 Virtual Smart Cards. The Virtual Smart Cards are based on the TPM (Trusted Platform Module) that is available on all modern business laptops and tablets, which means that hardware protected security has been made available to a much larger market.

“By providing Virtual Smart Cards management capabilities, Versatile Security offers more values to customers who need strong protection of identities across the organization. This not only frees employees from using complex and difficult to remember passwords, but also enables single sign- on experience on BYOD Windows 8 devices.” said Arnaud Jumelet, Cloud & Security Consultant, at Microsoft France.

“I am excited about this new feature in vSEC:CMS in many ways; it will make it possible to demonstrate the wide feature set of our flagship product to everyone who’s running Windows 8 and it opens up completely new opportunities in markets that we have so far not been able to address at all,” said Joakim Thorén, CEO, Versatile Security.
