Versasec Launches vSEC:CMS v5.8

Versasec, the leader in identity and access management (IAM) solutions, today introduced vSEC:CMS Version 5.8. The focus for this brand-new version has been to significantly speed up all transactions and workflows in the product: faster database transactions, faster network communication and faster access to our state-of-the-art product. With vSEC:CMS Version 5.8 we are introducing the ability to evaluate our full product features in minutes with no need for external hardware.

Enhancements found in vSEC:CMS 5.8 include the following:

  • Updated database interface enabling faster operations, lower memory usage and higher throughput.
  • SSL is now supported for the gRPC protocol. gRPC significantly improves client server communication speed and resource usage.
  • It is now possible to install vSEC:CMS without a physical System Owner Card. This enables a much faster Proof of Concept (PoC) setup!
  • Enhanced Windows Hello for Business (WHfB) integration with support for multi-role user accounts, multi-key per container and connectors to additional CAs.
  • RSDM can now make use of the fast gRPC protocol
  • The Thales TCT Luna T-Series HSM can now be utilized by vSEC:CMS
  • The following PKI credentials are now fully supported by vSEC:CMS:
    • Thales IDPrime 930/3930
    • Aventra MyEID 4.5
    • Key-ID PKI
    • Extended Feitian FIDO Security Key support: In this version we have further improved the management of Feitian's tokens and smart cards. Extra attention has been put on the new K9 token and PIV applet management.

"Version 5.8 is the best version of vSEC:CMS that we have ever made. In our tests we see 15 times faster startup of the system - that alone is worth the upgrade. I am also excited about the further integration with smart and convenient virtual credentials, such as Microsoft WHfB and Thales IDPrime Virtual that we now have performed," said Joakim Thorén, CEO and Founder of Versasec.

About vSEC:CMS

While most companies recognize the importance of two-factor authentication (2FA) of user identities, managing their 2FA implementations with proprietary solutions in-house can be time consuming and costly. Versasec's cost-effective, easily implemented, and intuitive vSEC:CMS remove the barriers to identity and access management (IAM). Versasec vSEC:CMS is optimized for deployment in large-scale projects.
