Versasec and Aventra have decided to establish a formal strategic technology partnership, the shared customers will benefit from it right away in the form of the extended integration of the two companies' offerings.

"With technology partnership Aventra and Versasec ensure that their products work seamlessly together, and users get the best possible user experience. Aventra's target has always been making PKI technology easy to use. Aventra has been developing MyEID PKI Smart Card and the associated software keeping this target in mind for over 15 years. With its quick and easy deployment and intuitive user interface, Versasec's vSEC:CMS fits well to the software ecosystem available to MyEID users. Using vSEC:CMS one can set up and administer a PKI smart card authentication system without having to be an expert in PKI," said Hannu Honkanen, Development and Security Specialist at Aventra.

"The latest version of vSEC:CMS has been extended to be able to fully manage the Aventra MyEID Smart Card.

I am truly excited about the potential of this partnership," said Joakim Thorén, founder and CEO of Versasec.
